December Inspirations and VIDEO tutorial by Catherine Giguère

Hello BFS fans! It's been a year since I had the chance to be part of the Blue Fern Studios Creative Team. I had a blast. But now, it's time for me to say goodbye and thank you to Valerie and Leslie for this incredible opportunity. I have two last layouts and a video tutorial to share with you, I hope you will like it!



I cut my paper Vintage Christmas Auld Lang Syne in two pieces and then I glued them on a 12 x12 chipboard. Then, I did a textured background with a stencil and modeling paste. I add brown ink and I stamped many details with brown ink again.

I embossed the Frame Collage and the Blooming Flourishes chipboards with Ginger embossing powder. I embossed my title with Forest powder.

Then, I add flowers and texture with Burgendy and Twig Seedlings.

For this layout, I used the gorgeous Remnants collection. I did my layout on the Mayfair paper. I put a thin coat of white Gesso with a spatula on the half right side of my paper. I put purple inks on it. Then, I add details with stamps and black ink and texture with a stencil and black modeling paste. 

I painted with black Gesso all my chipboards. I cut in pieces the Damask Panel and put these under my flowers and my picture.

I add a lot of flowers and texture with Seedlings. I put a thin layer of white gesso on my flowers to give them a vintage look.
