Little Girls by Lisa Landry

A huge thank you to Lisa Landry for joining us this month as our October Blue Fern Fan of the Month.  We hope you have enjoyed her layouts using our new Homespun Collection as much as we have.  She has taken us back in time as she remembers people and events from times past.  Here's Lisa with her 4th layout this month.

Today is my final layout for Blue Fern's October Fan of the Month. Thank you so much to Blue Fern Studios for allowing me this wonderful opportunity to work with so many gorgeous products!  My layout features a 1965 photo of me when I was just 4 years old.

I was absolutely determined to use more of the stunning Blue Fern Lace in my final layout.
It fits perfectly in the center of this gorgeous Hospitality page.

Aren't the Homespun Blossoms soooooo pretty?!

My layout is 100% Blue Fern flowers and lace. I used both sides of the Tea Time page to hand make some of the flowers.  Using flower punches, I edge inked and then formed the petals, gluing one flower inside the other. 
The flower centers are made by sprinkling Blue Fern's Wintergreen Seedlings on top of a dollop of glue. The tiny red flowers have a white pearl center.

I also hand made some Salvia-type flowers.  I ran a wire through the center of each punched flower, using a bead in between as a separator, gluing everything as I went.  The tops of the wires (the stamen of the flower) are coated in glue and then dipped in Blue Fern's Wintergreen Seedlings

I wrapped the wire stems around the beautiful Blue Fern Wanderlust Vine with its detailed leaves and adorable bright yellow flowers.  This vine also has black gypsophila flowers on it that I removed because of the color palette of my layout.  I divided the Wanderlust Vine into two pieces so that I could use one on each side of the photo.  What an array of beautiful flowers!

It has been such an honor and a complete joy creating this month with Blue Fern's gorgeous Homespun collection.  I will definitely have more creations with this collection on my blog in the near future.
Thank you for stopping by and have a GREAT day!  Lisa : )
