Win or learn never lose

Hi everyone!  Debbie Burns here with you today.  I'm so excited to be back designing for Blue Fern Studios.  I've been a fan of their products for years and was lucky to have the opportunity to design for Blue Fern Studios over the last few years.   I look forward to sharing my projects with you this year.  

I've been paper crafting for the past twenty years, and I am always experimenting with various mixed media techniques.   Today I have a mixed media canvas to share with you that I created using the 
Happy Accident 2 collection.

I started off with blank canvas and added texture with paints, waxes, modeling paste and papers. Lots of layering using the Suave and Grubby papers and ephemera from the Happy Accident 2 collection.

The title is from the Happy Accident 2 printed chipboard.   To the right I used a Late Winter Lily which I dabbed with some brown rust effect paste and added some Blue Fern Paprika and Twig Seedlings.

I placed a few pieces of chipboard among my layers.  To the right I used the Criss Cross chipboard, embossed with Blue Fern Melon Embossing Powder.  To the left I used a Classic Mini Frame chipboard, painted Blue and gold.

To the left and right of my layering I placed a Chesterville Blooms coral flower which I dabbed with some gold wax.  I also placed a Swirls &Twirls chipboard piece, covered with gold wax.  Tucked beneath the Late Winter Lily I used a blue flower from The Chesterville Blooms.  The finishing touch, Twig and Paprika Seedlings.

I hope I have inspired you.  Thanks for stopping by!
