January Inspiration by France Ringuette

Good morning bloggers,

Today is an exciting day for me, as I am getting the opportunity to share with you my very first projects for Blue Fern Studios.

First, let me introduce myself.

My name is France, I am a french Canadian living in the Montreal area of Canada. I am blessed to have 2 young adult boys and a loving husband. You'll see thru my 2018 projects that my family and our passion for traveling are often the focus points of my projects. I also work in Marketing in the Medical device field. Crafting is my relaxation. I enjoy mainly making scrapbook pages, but you will also see me making cards, tag, art journals and mixed media canvases.

Please come say hi, it's always fun to meet new crafty friends.


Sweet Dreams (Layout #1)

 The inspiration from this page started with this amazing paper in the Remnants collection called Devonshire. I fell in love with the printed flowers and birds on this particular page.

I started playing with my chipboards by adding seedlings to cover them, I have to say that I was very pleased with the results and love the dimension this brings to the layout. I used Meadow seedlings.

The title, oh what color to chose is always a challenge I find. I was intrigued by this new embossing powder called Night Sky, at first, I wasn't certain it would have a fit on a boy's page but at the end I enjoy the contrast that it has with the Meadow seedlings, so I opted for this color.

The center of the Remnants bloom flowers has a slight yellow highlight that I covered in white gesso, then glued a mix of mauve seedlings and red wine glitter. The results are amazing.

Around my picture I used night sky embossing powder with weathered doilies stamp set. On my chipboard circle flourish small frame, I used one of the new colors green ivory

Once my layout is done, then I added touches of red wine and icicle glitter to my flowers and some on the paper.

Remember this Day : Sintra Portugal (Layout #2)

If you enjoy traveling and you've never ben to Portugal, trust that this needs to be added to your bucket list. Sintra is a beautiful city that has amazing Unesco sites that are spectacular to visit. When I looked at the stunning paper from the REMNANTS collection, I knew it was perfect for this picture. This paper is Bloomsbury, I loved the old books look at the detailed printing of the flower and clock.
The title is part of the Remnants chipboard series and so perfect for a capturing any precious moment.

I wanted to add a bit more red to the page, so I chose to work with a stencil, light molding past and this amazing Garnet embossing powder. Once the embossing was done, I wanted to add more stamping to the background. I chose to use the Vintage Edges stamp set.

I love adding flowers to my projects, on this layout I added some from the Remnants Bloom and Floral Collections. I also cut out some flowers from the amazing lace 4 set.

For the chipboard, I inked the Shabby Brick bits. Once my layout was almost completed, I added the final touches with splatters of inks, white gesso and touches of Sterling Silver Seedlings.

Love (Layout #3)

 I just loved this picture of my niece with the new born son Ayden, I've been enjoying making many pages for her recently. I have to say that this one is simple but oh so happy about how it turned out.

The starting point was this amazing paper from the Happy Accident collection called Incident. I love textured backgrounds and this one does the work for you, so rich in details, I opted not to alter it and just build layers.

I selected to emboss the Chicken Wire Panel with Blue Sky embossing powder. I did the same with the Love title chipie.

On my flowers, I opted to add some touches of white gesso and Blue Ice glitter.
