April Inspiration - Joanne Bain

Hi Everyone!!

Joanne here with you today to share a couple of layouts and a tutorial using gorgeous Blue Fern products.

For my first layout I mixed and matched collections. I have used papers from Amber & Apricot, Wanderlust and Seaside Cottage. I amazes me how beautifully the collections mix and match.

'My Loves'

So for this page was created with lots of fussy cut images from the different papers to create the dimensional cluster. The birds, brown leaves and yellow roses were cut from Birdsong and Sunny Deposition papers from the Amber And Apricot collection.

To get the fussy cut rose to blend into the paper I used the Penned Flourishes stamp and stamped a little more over the papers edge with black ink. It helped to blend it in perfectly.

In between each layer I added folded flowers and shredded cheesecloth to add extra interest and texture.

The frame around the top of my photo was cut from the In the Mood chipboard sheet and covered with some of the Seaside Cottage Mermaid patterned paper.

For my second layout I chose to go back to a favourite of mine white background. I chose to add fussy cut layers and add some of the Blue Fern mixed media ingredients. I have also created a step by step tutorail so maybe you can try your own or put your own spin on it.

'My Inspiration'

To create the main cluster I started by fussy cutting the flourishes from the Garden Life Morning Dew patterned paper.

In between each of the fussy cut layers I added a mixture of flowers and frayed cheesecloth. The background was created with a mixture of mica powders and paints. As I like my clusters to be tight I only allowed a little of the colour to show from behind.

In the background I also added Blue Fern seedlings and glitters. The main flower is one of the gorgeous white roses from the Garden Blooms set which was recoloured to coordinate with layout.

For the title I cut down the Blue Fern You Are My Inspiration chipboard title to just my inspiration bcause that is what my children are. All chipboard was left entirely raw.

And here is my tutorial, I hope you enjoy it.
