A Layout + A Canvas - Kelly's September Shares

 Hello there - Kelly here. I hope your weekend is going well so far...
It is my turn to share my pages for the Blue Fern and 7 Dots Studio swap..

 For this first layout, I have combined papers from the Dreamer collection with a little bit of Messy Head, along with elements from the All I ever and Hopefully collections. I like to mix and match!

I really had a great time with these fun summer photos of two of my greatest loves :) :)
I used the Heart Panel - Chunky, to "ground"  my larger photo. This piece was embossed with white embossing powder, brushed a bit with Gelatos, then I added some stamping. I used a couople of the hearts punched out of the same piece here and there on my page.

I have also used the word "Love" from the 2 Hearts Set, and altered it the same as the Heart Panel.

Next, I have an 8x10 reverse canvas...which I used the Messy Head collection from 7 Dots Studio. 

Again, on this page, I have used another section of the Heart Panel - Chunky. This is one piece of chipboard that really goes a long way..there are so many options to cut it up to suit your project(s). I have made two layouts, and one canvas so far with this piece and still have some leftover!

Autumn colours

Hi there!
Camilla here with some new Blue Fern Studios projects. I have been using some faboulous papers from 7Dots Studios too.

First, a layout using the Dreamer collection from 7Dots. Here I use three different chipboards from BFS. The Lattice Gate is first painted in white gesso and then sprayed with mists and finally I used a stamp on it.

The One of a Kind is painted in white and then covered with crackle clear paint.

The Spring Branches are first painted in white gesso and then misted.

Then I have made a card using the Hopefully collection from 7Dots Studios together with two chipboard pieces from BFS.

The chipboard pieces are painted in white and then I used two different kind of stamps to make some patterns.

September projects by Kerryn Lawson

Hi, it's Kerryn here today to share my September projects with you. 
For my first project I have a card that was created with papers from 7 Dots Studio 'Love is in the Air' collection and teamed with Symphony Corners (small).
The Symphony Corners were primed with gesso before being painted with a peachy coloured paint.  A random coating of glitter was applied before they were adhered to the card to form the base for my embellishment cluster.

For my second project I have used papers from 7 Dots Studio 'Domestic Goddess' to create a layout about my beautiful girl. 

The small leaves in the All Natural Set were the perfect size for my floral cluster.  They were simply inked with green ink.

Inspired by Kelly's use of the punched out bits on her layouts last month I have added some punched out bits from the Quatrefoil panel.  They have been inked with a sandy coloured ink and embossed with distress embossing powder.

The bits of honey have become one of my favourite Blue Fern Studios products!  I have inked the bits of honey with brown ink and tucked them amongst my paper layers.

Two hearts have been inked with dusky pink ink with brown ink applied to the edges with a foam pad, layered together and tucked among the floral cluster.

For my final project, another layout, I have used 7 Dots Studio 'Domestic Goddess' papers and stickers.

I am a huge fan of chipboard words and The Optimist Word Set is full of lots of great words for your projects.  I have painted the You Shine! phrase with a spray mist.  Painting, rather than spraying, gives a more watery finish.  Make sure that you prime your chipboard with gesso before painting though so that your colour shows more true to life.

The Icons (Set One) has been put to good use on this page.  The heart was covered with sequins and finished with a button.

The guitar and star were layered together, primed with gesso and then painted with a combination of spray mists in three different colours.  A light sanding around the edges gives a nice worn finish.

An arrow from the directions set has been used to draw focus to the alphabet and phrase stickers.  The arrow was primed with gesso and painted with spray mist.
