Destination Unknown - Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone!  I'm back with the last of my May projects for Blue Fern Studios. I used the Wanderlust Collection again along with a picture of my Grandmother.

 I used side B from the Memento paper for the background.  I applied some misting and stamping with the Tattered Newsprint stamp.   Next I used stencils and applied some soft mat gel and embossed with Taupe and Azure embossing powders.  I built up layers under the photo using Wanderlust Petites, Souvenir and Calling Cards.  

 I altered the Wanderlust Lilies with some white gold paste and a light misting.   I misted  the Heartland Blossom with a touch of gold.

I applied some Gold Nugget and Twig Seedlings to the flowers and background.

Under the photo I used a piece from the Wanderlust Printed Chipboard.

The title came from the Calling Cards paper.

Delightful - Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone!  Hope you had an enjoyable weekend.  It was a little on the chilly and rainy side here.  Perfect for staying inside and spending some time crafting.  Today I have the first of my 3 May projects designed for Blue Fern Studios to share with you. 

I used three paper collections when creating this layout, Happy Accident, Garden Life and Heartland.  The background paper Fortuity is from Happy Accident.  I did some light masking and misting on the background.  I built up layers under the photo using additional papers from Happy Accident, Fluke, Lucky, Quirk and Windfall.  I did a lot of fussy cutting from In Bloom and Wallflower from Garden Life, and Bicycle for two and Love Song Serenade from Heartland.

Lots of beautiful flowers including Chesterville Florals, Apricot Blooms, Attic Charm Daisies and Moody Blooms.  I embossed the chipboard piece under the photo with my favorite Blue Fern Embossing Powder, Ivory and used a mixture of Sage, Green Ivory and Ivory on the leaves.

More layering under the photo with flowers cut from Garden Life and Heartland papers.

The chipboard title was covered with some pink spray and ink.  To the left of the title you can see more flowers that I fussy cut.

Lots of layering under the picture using pieces from the Printed chipboard that coordinates with the Amber & Apricot collection.  I embossed the chipboard with Blood Orange Embossing Powder. 

The title is from the Printed Chipboard.  I embossed some chipboard pieces with a mixture of Dark Chocolate and Blood Orange Embossing Powders.  

Lots of flowers from Late Winter Lilies, Chesterville Florals, Christmas Blooms, Homespun Blooms and Remnants Blossoms surround the picture.
