September Share by Karine


I can't believe it's already the end of September! Were did the summer went? Oh my...

September 24th means it's my day here at Blue Fern Studios. So lets start with my first share.

A Walk on the Beach

You have probably seen this layout already, as I presented it September 1st for the moodboard reveal.

I started out with the Contemplation paper from the Serendipity collection.

All around my picture, I used some cards from the Calling Cards, along with some scrap pieces from the Fascination and Anticipation papers, also part of the Serendipity collection.

To add some interest to my background, I used the Brocade Texture and the Arcadia Textures stamps and embossed the patterns with snow Imagine Ink embossing powder. You can see some of the texture created on the picture above, over the flowers.

To embellish, I used some Seaside Lilies, Seaside Roses and Tranquil Roses and Lilies.

Lastly, my chipboard pieces, the Mesh Bits and my title (A Walk on the Beach) are covered with sandy paste and dry brushed with white gesso.


My second layout uses the Stillness paper from the Tranquility collection.

On my background, i used the Serendipity Medley and Essential Textures stamps.

I decided to cut apart the Dresden Corsage and to emboss the flowers I created with some Garnet Imagine Ink embossing powder. 

To go with the flowers, I also used the Spring Branch that I cut in pieces and embossed with Fern Imagine Ink embossing powder. To add some interest, I used a sponge to add some white gesso while the powder was still hot.

I used some flowers from the Attic Charm Daisies set and some from the Tranquil Blooms set.

Finally, my title piece is part of the Serendipity Words 2 set. I coloured it with ink.


Finally, my last layout is called Delightful. I started with one of my all time favorites collection: Ombré Dreams. The background paper here is called Ginger's Dream.

I used the Forever and Serendipity Medley stamps to stamp on my background.

I cut the Turkish panel and embossed the pieces with Imagine Ink snow embossing powder.

Over that, I used the Blooming Flourish that I cut and embossed with Sea Mist Imagine Ink embossing powder. 

My title piece, part of The Optimist Word Set, is embossed with Auburn Imagine Ink embossing powder.

I hope it inspires you.
Have a nice day.
