Three new layouts by Jessica


My first layout I created for the Blue Fern Studios design team for April is titled "Special".  For this layout, I chose to use papers from the Heartland Collection.  The background paper is Love Blooms and I used the Love Notes paper to build the matting under the picture.

I applied clear gesso to the background paper then did some stenciling with modeling paste.  To add more white with the modeling paste, I used diluted gesso on a plastic bag and "smooshed" it up and down my page.  My next step for the background work was to use a different stencil with modeling paste in areas around the page.  While it was still wet, I applied Dark Chocolate embossing powder over the modeling paste then dried it with a heat gun.  I love embossing with texture paste - for the next step, I added blue mist with a paint brush to the areas around the embossed stenciling.

At this point, I put my picture and embellishments in place then splattered diluted gesso up and down my page to create a soft and relaxing feel to it.

The Blue Fern Flourish chipboard was first embossed with Dark Chocolate embossing powder, then I added some Solar Flare glitter randomly in spots with matte gel medium.  Both lilies are from the Wanderlust Lillies set.  The lily to the left of the picture has Blue Ice Glitter applied with matte gel.  The lily to the right has Black Ice glitter applied to the tips with matte gel also.

Here's my list of Blue Fern Studios products for this layout:

My next creation features the Amber & Apricot collection.  My background paper is Sunny Disposition, and I love that I was able to  play with a lot of colors on this layout.

The Blue Fern Studios Seedlings with matte gel helped to accomplish the colorful and fun background.  I used Gold Nugget, Harvest, Pink Topaz, and Vivid Pink Seedlings.  The photo is mounted on the Amber & Apricot Birdsong paper pieces and some of the collection's Printed Chipboard.

I used flowers from two different sets: Dark Tropic Lilies and Wanderlust Lilies.  The white lace that is dangling to the left of the titled is Lace #10 from Blue Fern Studios - I love how it can twist and add dimension!  Here are a couple of closeups:

My final layout features the In the Mood collection background paper with Memoires Calling Cards paper as matting for the photo.

I used the Tattered Newsprint stamp with Pure Red embossing powder randomly on the background.  To add interest and softness, I used Lace #10 to the top of the picture and Lace #12 on the side.

The flowers coral roses on the page are from the Happy Roses set and the other flowers are from the Harvest Lilies set.

The chipboard on the page is the XOXO chipboard title and hearts on the side of the picture and I also used one of the keys from the Vintage Keys set.  All of the chipboard was embossed with Baby Pink and a sprinkle of Coral embossing powder.
