Dream Big Decor Panel


Hello everyone, my name is Aida Haron from Singapore and let me say this is such an huge thrill, a real honor to be with a team of talented Creatives. February marks the first time I'm posting for the Design Team at Blue Fern Studios ..... can you tell how excited I am ?  

Married to a very patient husband, we have 2 girls (26 and 21 years) and currently I conduct workshops for Art Journals in sunny Singapore. My journey in the crafting industry has taken many turns from card making, scrapping to mixed media, projects displayed at Creativation ...... all the phases have been amazing, I'm grateful and feel very lucky for the tremendous creative opportunities.

My online homes are a blog Aida Haron, Art Journal and on Instagram I am @aidaville.


With our girls being older older, it means we have fewer photos and scrapbooking in the physical sense has changed. Now I mostly Art Journal and create decor panels for display around the home or as gifts for special occasions. Today, I am sharing this Dream Big decorative 8 x 10" canvas panel layered with gorgeous Blue Fern Studios products.

The supplies used :
Happy Accident 2 Grubby patterned paper
Chipboards : Dream Big, Boston Lattice, Willow Flower
Assorted Blue Fern Studio Flowers and Lace.


The Dream Big chipboard was treated with white gesso, and heat embossed with a cream and glitter powder. Once cool to touch, lightly rub in a layer of yellow or orchre crayon in little areas on the words to deepen the dimension.

The base of this project is a 8 x 10" flat back canvas painted a pale blue using acrylic paints. The Grubby patterned paper has an industrial design making it a good contrast to the other more feminine elements like flourishes and flowers.
The Boston Lattice chipboard was given a base coat of white gesso and grit paste for texture. Once dry, it was painted with a grey/blue acrylic paint. I love how the grit paste created the shabby feel ! 
For the Willow Flower chipboard, I pressed pale Oxide inks on to the surface for colour. When you are in a hurry, this is a no mess, easy option for colouring chipboards.
To match the patterned paper Grubby Happy Accident 2 and the blue of the Lattice chipboard, I chose a mix of light orange, yellow and cream flowers.
Thank you for stopping by to spend a few moments with me. I hope this Dream Big Decor Panel will inspire you to create with Blue Fern Studios.

Happy Crafting !
