Remnants Video Tutorial and In the Mood Layout

Hello everyone and happy Valentine's Day!  Today I am up on the Blue Fern Studios blog to share a couple of layouts with you for February.


My first layout features the Remnants Collection.  I am very inspired by the whole collection so I decided to make another video tutorial for this layout.  You can see the video tutorial below.

I chose the Callaway paper for my background.  The Remnants Printed Chipboard pieces with a thin coat of gesso under my picture added just the right amount of dimension.  The circular chipboard pieces around the picture are from the Floral Circles Chipboard and the thin circle frame right behind the picture is from the Tattered Butterfly Chipboard.  I also used the word "Forever" from the Families are Forever Chipboard for the title.

Each piece of chipboard on my layout was first painted with two layers of gesso.  Then I double embossed the chipboard pieces with Pearl Embossing Powder.  Before the embossing powder dried, I sprinkled some White Gold Glitter on the wet embossing powder to add some shimmer.

All of my flowers in my layout have some gesso on the tips, and they were lightly sprinkled with Red Wine Glitter while it was still wet.  

To the right of the picture, I used a rose from the Happy Roses set, and the rose to the left of the picture is from the Spring Florals set.  The other three flowers on my layout with the pearls in the center are from the Remnants Florals set.

My picture is mounted on a torn piece of the Mini Remnants Paper.  To add the final touches,  I used a very small amount of Purple Haze Seedlings in various areas around my picture and flowers.

I hope my video tutorial will provide you with some inspiration for your next layout!  Don't forget that I would love to answer any questions you may have. :-)

My second layout for this lovely February features the newest In the Mood Collection.  I chose to use the Pensive Paper for my background and mounted my photo on a torn piece of the Mellow Paper.

I applied modeling paste and stencil then added pink and brown mists to the background.  When it was dry, I used the Crackle Textures Stamp with archival ink.

Next I embossed the Treasured Floral Frame with Pixie Dust and Baby Pink Embossing Powder.  I glued it to the paper, then I used matte gel to attach the Lace 12.

While the matte gel was still wet, I sprinkled some Tickled and Sweet Pea Seedlings.  Next I splattered some diluted black gesso then glued the torn Mellow Paper.

I decided to use small pieces of the Floral Lattice Bits Chipboard embossed with Peacock Embossing Powder and added some Army Dust Glitter.   I glued the pieces under the flowers from the Moody Florals Set.  Finally, I attached the Lace 10 around the side of the picture and randomly added some Emerald Seedlings.

I hope I gave you some inspiration today as you create new layouts from this lovely collection!  Take care!
