Journey Decor Panel

Hello Everyone, welcome back to the Blue Fern Studios Blog !

Have you felt that life is always a Journey of some sort ? I've been trying really hard to simplify my life, to need less and have more time doing things I am passionate about especially in crafting and Art Journals. Today's Decor Panel has the perfect title Journey with lovely layers in Chipboard, Paper, Lace and Flowers which is quintessentially Blue Fern Studios.

Here are the supplies :
Glam Frame Chipboard
Amber and Apricot Collection : 
Chapters, Sunny Disposition, Busy Bees
Wanderlust Printed Chipboard Shapes
Tattered Walls Ephemera
Seedlings : Meadow  |  Lace : No. 4

I love working with flat back canvases as they are sturdy to build on, can take layers of paper and paint without crumbling or bending out of shape. The overall design for this project is a "shabby and sweet with vintage touches" and hopefully you will be inspired to pull out your Blue Fern Studios supplies to create a similar piece ! 

To begin, a 10 x 8" canvas was given a base coat of Gesso and a very pale gray-green acrylic. Next I tore pieces of Chapters paper from the collection Amber and Apricot and adhered to the canvas randomly.
Add colour to the Chipboard Glam Frame with a vintage Bronze paint. As you can see the Frame was cut in two and the larger piece used on top layer, the smaller underneath.
I used different sizes of paper to create layers, keeping to matching colours and the style consistent. The use of sticky foam squares helps lift the papers and the Flowers for dimension. The Wanderlust Lilies are just too gorgeous and a wonderful addition to the project. Seedlings in Meadow was adhered to small areas creating texture.

Stiffen the Lace No. 4 with acrylic paint to make it manageable, then cut it into small pieces to use for layers.

The Wanderlust Printed Chipboard Shapes have words and shapes you can use to add a theme to your projects and so simple to use - just peel the backing paper and stick down !
Thank you for visiting the Blue Fern Studios Blog. I hope this Journey Panel sparks an inspired work by you and perhaps tell a story or reflection of your own creative process.

See you soon !
