Paradise Layout using Glory of the Garden collection

Hello Blue Fern Fans!  I have a mixed media layout using the beautiful Glory of the Garden collection!  Have you created with this collection?  Be sure to share your projects at Blue Fern Fanatics Facebook Group!

For my background I used a stencil with some White Sand texture paste mixed with a little acrylic paint and then I sprinkled Blue Fern Studios Solar Flare glitter.  I also did some ink stamping with Blue Fern Studios Opulent Chandelier A Romantic Life Stamp.

I did some diecutting with the collection I diecut doilies,  flowers and leaves for my layering.  

As I add my layers of diecuts I also love to use cheesecloth and Lace 51 from Blue Fern Studios,  I cut the lace in pieces and added it into my layers.  

I used a few diecuts from the Ephemra pack from this collection,  I love butterflies and there are a few different butterflies in this pack.

I added a few flowers from my stash to add more depth to my design

My favorite elements to add are Art Stones,  Seedlings and sequins they add so much to your project!

I also used Blue Fern Studios Flouris Medallion Frame,   I cut it into pieces and heat embossed with Taupe and Goldilocks Blue Fern Studios embossing powders.  

For my final touch to complete my layout I sprinkled some White Acrylic paint all over the layout!
I hope I have inspired you today to create some beautiful!  
Thank you for stopping by!  

Happy Creating!!!

 Hello wonderful people! Hope this post finds you well and safe in these turbulent times. I have a new layout today using the Remnants collection from Blue Fern Studios.This is my oldest grand daughter Lilly. This was her school photo from last year and I finally got around to scrapping it! I primed my paper with clear gesso then did some stamping on the background with embossing ink then heat embossed it with Plum embossing powder. Then I mixed some Seedlings with glitter and matte gel and ran it through a stencil for some dramatic texture. I embossed some drywall tape with Plum, Garnet and Magenta embossing powder and arranged them in the center of my page. From there I layered my papers.I also did some stamping with black archival ink.I used the Bouquet Florals chipboard. I embossed the flowers with a combination of garnet and plum embossing powder. I painted the leaves with some green Sparks paint then glued some Seedlings (Meadow) to them for some fun.

I framed my photo with each piece. I then added some small blooms on top. I used some pebbles from Prima that matched my papers.I used some circle chipboards from the Printed Chipboard page to describe my feelings about Lilly.
I used a piece from the Printed Chipboard as my title. I also tucked a little piece of Lace 1 under my top paper. I also added some Art Stones for extra texture.
My last close-up. For a finish I added some splashes in Prima's Iris Color Bloom Spray and some white gesso.

And that is the end of this project. 
Please take care out there.
All the best! :)

Hey Crafty Friends,  I have a Layout to share using Radiance collection.

I Love the colors in this collection!  

I did some stenciling using White Crackle texture paste then did some stamping with Blue Fern Stamps for my background

I also did some diecutting and used the diecuts to make a couple flowers,  tags,  doilies and honeycomb strip for my layers.

I heat embossed with Blue Fern Studios Chili Powder and Goldilocks on the chipboard piece.  I also love adding cheesecloth in between my layers for added texture.

I had a few leftover Blue Fern Studios Flowers that went beautifully with this layout.
One of my favorite elements to add is Seedlings and glitter,  it gives any project a nice pop of color and texture!

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you are creating today!  

Happy Creating!

Tags-with Passages Collection

Welcome back. I have something different today. I decided to make some tags for a change. I often use tags as bookmarks and I have worn them out so it was time to make some new ones!
I used the Passages Collection to make these.
This line comes with an 8 by 8 paper pack as well as journaling cards which make doing smaller projects easier. (And you don't waste paper!). I made the backgrounds on both tags the same. I used old papers from a thesaurus and a music book and tore strips for my base. I also used tissue paper to give it more texture. I then went over it with a stencil and some molding paste then colored it. I popped up the balloon with some cardboard and added some flowers.
I did the exact same with this tag. I added different chipboard centers and some blooms from Blue Fern. The bird image came from the Glory in the Garden line. :)
A few close-ups.

I used Blue Fern and Prima flowers.
I used some Seedlings in Meadow for more texture.
More Blue Fern blooms.

That is it for today. I hope all is going well for you and that you stay safe and healthy during these difficult times. All the best! :)

  Hello! I am back with you today with a layout using the gorgeous new Blue Fern Studios line Passages.This is an adorable line that focuses on travel but is very versatile for any photos!

I used the paper Junket for my background. I love the soft pink color and the adorable design on it. To frame my photo I used the Frilly Frame chipboard. I always prepare my chipboard by covering it in white gesso so that the color holds better and comes out brighter. I then went over it with pink paint and then highlighted areas with some Salt Water Taffy glimmer mist from Lindy's.

I wanted to bring out the pattern on the paper a bit more so I used a stencil that had a very similar design and added molding paste. I colored the design with the same colors that I used on the chipboard frame, Salt Water Taffy, Cosmopolitan Pink, Cotton Candy and Gold/ I added a little pink pearl in the middle of each design to help bring it out more.

I made some flourishes with my Prima mould and colored them again with the same colors I used on my background. The flowers are from Prima and Blue Fern.

I used the camera chipboard from the Picture This package. Trying to stay true to my color scheme I used Ebony, Glistening Sand and It's A Girl embossing powders to color it.

My second flower cluster, again using Prima and Blue Fern flowers. I also added the adorable little Eiffel Tower charm from the World Tour package.

To maximize my chipboard I cut the camera in half placing half on either side of the photo. I also randomly added some Seedlings in Sweet Pea around my layout for added texture.

I used a piece from the Ephemera pack as my title. I also did a little stamping using the Wandering Soul stamp on my background.

I hope everything is well in your world and that you are staying safe and sane!
All the best! :)

Mixed Media Tags using Bird Waltz

 Hello!  I have been wanting to create with Bird Waltz collection but the designs and colors are so beautiful I didn't know how to cut the papers!!!  So I decided to create 3 mixed media tags using this collection!

I started with Bird Waltz paper,  then used White Crackle texture paste thru a stencil then I used a stamp from Opulent Chandier Stamp collection to add to the background.  

I used some fiber and Blue Fern Studios Lace 51 and Lace 26 then added a couple diecut tags,  doilies and leaves using Bird Waltz paper for these diecuts.  I also did some fussy cutting,  one of the roses from the paper collection.  For more texture and dimension I added cheesecloth,  Blue Fern Studios Seedlings-Gold Nugget and also Blue Fern Studios Glitter-Sailor's Delight.  and from my stash I added a few brown sequins.
I heat embossed the Blue Fern Studios chipboard with Taupe and I also used the sentiment stamp from Affectionately Yours
The same process for the other 2 tags are similar to the first tag.  

I used Blue Fern Studios Crimson Blossoms for all 3 tags they were the perfect pop of color 
I needed to tie in the colors from the Bird Waltz paper collection!

I also used Blue Fern Studios Bird Waltz Ephemera diecut cardstock Butterfly on this tag!
I Love Butterflies so this Ephemera diecut was perfect!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope I've inspired you today to create something beautiful using Blue Fern Studios Bird Waltz collection!
