 Yuletide Christmas Junk Journal

Today I am sharing a beautiful Christmas inspired journal using the new Yuletide collection designed by Jen Bishop and a vintage 1956 copy of a Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Book. It is such a fun way to re-purpose a book into 
something special to share with family and friends.

 These papers are so rich with color and texture they easily stand alone with no decoration whatsoever, but using the laces, trims and the ephemera from the collection take it over the top.

I love the to add lots of techniques to incorporate into my journals. Little pockets and tags make a perfect place to tuck journaling,

The Bits and Bobs pack filled with unique Cabinet Cards are a great focal point 
and layering them over lace creates drama.

Using lace as a "belly band" is a fun way to add extra tags, photos or extra ephemera.
 A complete video series of the making of this 5 ring binder journal 
is under my playlist, Blue Fern Studios, on my
YouTube channel - Gayle Agostinelli.  

A flip through video is available at , 

if you'd like to see a walk through of the entire journal.

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Journal.

Thank you for coming by today!

Hugs, Gayle

Stop and Smell the Roses Mixed Media Canvas

 Hey Blue Fern Fans I have a fun Mixed Media Canvas I created using the Gorgeous Fairy Whispers collection!  This collection has so many beautiful designs and colors,  I decided to showcase the colors using paints and also creating texture to enhance the Gorgeous papers.

I started with White Crackle texture paste through a stencil,  then used another stencil using a brick pattern to create texture using White Sand texture paste,   acrylic paint,  Blue Fern Studios embossing powder.  Then I did some ink stamping and heat embossing to add abit more interest to the background.  I used 13 Arts Watercolor powder,  Color Glow and Mist the add color to the background.  

I shifted through my Fairy Whispers papers and started designing my layout.  I did some paper distressing,  did some diecutting and added Blue Fern Studios Lace,  Blue Fern Studios Ephemera pack,  Flowers,  Crocheted Doilies,  Resin Frame and metal trinket.  I also added Reneabouquets Gorgeous handcrafted Butterflies and yellow mulberry flowers.

This Mixed Media Canvas came together so easy and was so satisfying to see it all come together!  I hope this inspires you to get your Gorgeous Blue Fern papers out and create something beautiful!  Be sure to share with us on Facebook at Blue Fern Fanatics,  we can't wait to see what you create!
