   Welcome! I have a new project today done with the A Romantic Life collection. 
This layout was inspired by the uber talented Marilyn Rivera you can find her blog here. This is my second oldest granddaughter Emily, an avid gymnast and dancer with a big personality!
I did the usual with my background. First an application of clear Gesso. I then cut all around the circle graphic on the page leaving only a tiny bit at the bottom attached. I then went around the graphic cutout with a stencil and some molding paste. At first I gave it a light coating of color in pink but ended up going back and adding more color to make it pop more. 
I used the Ornate Corner Flourish and cut it in half. I used It's A Girl embossing powder to color it. I added a piece on the top and one on the bottom to help extend my design. I used some cheesecloth and tucked it underneath the cutout as well as under the chipboard pieces.
I used flowers from Prima and the little pink roses are from the Blue Fern Studios Spring Blooms collection in pink.
I used some pieces from the Ephemera pack to help embellish my page.
Another photo showing the Ephemera pieces.
My title came from the Perfect, Adorable, Special chipboard pack. I love these words packages! They are awesome for titles. I used Bubblegum embossing powder to color it and added some Seedlings in Meadow to help it stand out more. I also used seedlings randomly on my page for more interest. I also used Art Stones from Prima.
I stamped out some butterflies and added them randomly on my layout. The yellow roses are from 49 & Market. 

I love the colors in this line. They are versatile and great for a variety of different types of photos.
That brings this post to an end for today. I hope that you are well and staying safe out there! It has been a challenging time for everyone with this Pandemic. I hope and pray that we as a society can work together to rid ourselves of this virus. Hang in there as this to shall pass!
All the best! :)

Jane Austen

Welcome! Today I have a new layout done with the beautiful Jane's Memoirs collection.
  These papers are filled with gorgeous colors and graphics. 
 I chose to scrap a photo based on the character Jane Austen. I backed my photo with various bits of papers from the collection as well as from the ephemera pack.
  I used the Regal chipboard frame for this page. I did the layout differently this time. I added all my elements then went over them all with white gesso. I then misted the page trying to compliment the colors on the paper.
 Another close-up.
I used Blue Fern lace and Prima flowers to embellish the page. I also used some mechanicals.
 Another close-up.

 I took the title from my page. I cut off just enough of the top to get the title Jane Austen.  I enjoyed working with these papers! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Take care and all the best! :)

   Hello! I am back today with another layout for Blue Fern Studios using the Eclectic Charm Collection.
 This is Rufus. Rufus was my youngest daughter's dog. He was a rescue dog and became an integral part of our family. He was a pitbull with a huge personality! It was a sad day when we took Jessie and Rufus to the vets to put him down. There is a special love between an owner and their dog. To say goodbye is as hard as losing a family member. I decided to make an album about Rufus for Jessie's 30th birthday this August.
 I primed my background with clear Gesso and then stamped a clock image with the Fancy Clocks stamp and Amethyst embossing powder on two places. I then did some stamping with the Tattered Newsprint Stamp and black archival ink. I went over everything with a stencil and some Paper molding paste from Finnibair and then colored it all with various mists.
I used some ephemera for added embellishments. I also used a rather old piece of chipboard that I love, the hollow brick from Blue Fern and embossed it with dark brown to lengthen my focal point.
I used some Purple Haze Seedlings on some of the flowers and added a painted butterfly also from Finn's mechanical collection.
A close-up of the blooms I used from both Prima and 49 & Market. I added some sparkles to some and seedlings on others.
I used the new Frilly Frame from the Romantic Life collection and heat embossed it with Wheat and Plum embossing powder.
I used some Melanges from Prima and painted them gold and purple again for added texture and interest.
I colored some alphas with some wine colored mist for my title. And that's all she wrote! I am looking forward to receiving the newest line from Blue Fern Jane's Memoirs this week! I hope to be back with a layout done with this gorgeous new line.

Stay safe and healthy!

All the best! :)
