Kelly's October Shares + Video Tutorial!

Kelly here. I hope you are having a great weekend! We are seeing our first bit of snow where I live, but I still am sharing summer pages - perhaps I am in denial? That's OK with me!!


Summertime with toddlers - well, we are all about the park - especially the swings! There is something *so sweet* about chubby little baby lets dangling from a baby swing!! 
The showcase piece on this page is the Chickenwire Panel..I used it as a textural element on my background as well as tucking into my clusters. I left it mostly bare, but did spray with a subtle gold shimmer mist. The pieces that are up top were just painted to match my background.

 Above you can also see some of the Natural Sprigs. These were water distressed, painted with a pearly paint, and then embossed with gold embossing enamel.

 Above, one of the clouds from Cloudy Skies - I have it a coat of gesso, a touch of stamping with a blue chalk ink, and gently blended the ink around the edges.

Lastly, above is the cute little birdie from the All Natural set, given a gold shimmer then detailed with pen. The word adorable is from the Good Vibes set - this was also painted with gesso and given a shot of gold mist.

"Enjoy The Little Things"

Blue Fern Studios chipboard often inspires me to create whimsical scenes on my layouts. I was totally inspired by the Spring Branch. I created a video on how I altered this piece:

I love the realistic look of it and was moved to make it a part of a tree for this page..I blended it in with lots of thread, flowers, wire curls, and paint.

Below, the Lattice Fence, All Natural Set, and bits of fibers, flowers, and thread completed the scene.

Cages All Over by Camilla

Hi! Camilla Ekman here with some new projects and I am using some new fabulous chipboards from Blue Fern Studios. 

To create this rather neutral layout I layered some different patterned papers from Maja Design and also used a mask to create a white swirl. As a photo mat I used the BFS Graduated Circles. Underneath the circle I used two Blue Fern Flourishes, one to the left and one to the right. I clustered some flowers and a vine and added two cages from the BFS Veranda Cage Set. The chipboards are painted in white gesso.

Next is a girly layout where I use the BFS Princess Window as a part of my photo mat. A beautiful cage from the BFS Veranda Cage Set and a Bohemian Butterfly shine among the flowers and pearl swirls. Those chipboards are also painted in white gesso. The papers are from Maja Design.

My last project for this month is a bag card. I decorated the front of a paper bag. You can put a small gift inside and then close the paper bag and give it away as a card. The BFS Grande Cage is the centre of attention and I have only added a few small roses and some pink seam binding. The papers are from Maja Design.
