Hi there! Welcome to Blue Fern Studios' blog.Today I would like to share a layout done with the new A Romantic Life collection by Blue Fern Studios.
These lovelies are my daughters. This picture tugs at my heart as they are now fully grown women with children of their own.
I applied a coat of clear gesso to my background to prepare the paper for all the medium I wanted to use. I then used white gesso to tone down the color of the paper a little as I wanted to do a pastel layout. I used a stencil from Finnibair and applied Paper Paste thru the stencil. Before removing it I added some color, yellow, blue and pink. I then took a credit card and ran it along the mediums to pull them together and spread them out. I love this technique.
A few close-ups of this technique.
I also heat embossed some drywall tape with blue, gold and pink to match the colors of my layout an applied then over varies spots on my page.
I used the Hearts a Flutter chipboard pack to embellish this page, It came with three big hearts and several smaller hearts in a variety of shapes. Here you can see I embossed one of the big hearts with wheat embossing powder and the tiny one with Breeze embossing powder.

I cut the last big heart in to two pieces and embossed it with It's A Girl and framed either side of my photo.
More of the smaller hearts. I filled in the hollow hearts with Tickled Pink Seedlings for more texture and interest.
I fussy cut some flowers from the page Flirtation and popped them up with some cardboard.
My flower cluster using some Blue Fern and Prima blooms.
This project was very thick as I raised several parts of my page with cardboard and foam dots.
My title from the Family Memories pack. I used both It's a Girl and Breeze embossing powder for this two tone look.

Hearts A Flutter
That is all for today! Hope you are staying safe and doing the social distancing. It's hard not to be able to see family or do the things we take for granted everyday. I find it hard every time I hear them extend the state of emergency here in Ontario. Fortunately we only have 3 cases thus far in our town of Gravenhurst.
Take care and all the best! :)
