Blue Fern Studios January Sketch Challenge

Happy New Year To All!    I'm thrilled to be continuing designing for Blue Fern Studios.  I am truly blessed to be a part of the amazing design term.  I love the products and am excited to see what the year  2016 has in store.  Two new collections were introduced in December, Blush and Timeless.  I will be back later on in the month to share a couple of layouts with the new paper collections, chipboard and embossing powders, but for now it's time for another new sketch challenge over at Blue Fern Studios and Michele Singh has created another beautiful sketch exclusively for Blue Fern for January.   Here is my take on the sketch using papers from the Deja Vu collection.  Love the purple and yellow color combination in this collection. I used the Luminairies, Tresors, Petites Cartes and La Plume papers. I came across this old picture of my kids, my son being goofy as ever and my sweet daughter with her precious smile!

A few closeups:
Here I've used the Heart Frame which I cut apart and used in various spots on my layout along with Sweet from the Arrow Words.  I painted both with white gesso and randomly added some lavender paint and microbeads.

More of the Heart Frame above and below.

And here is the January sketch:

The sketch challenge rules:

One lucky winner, selected by a random draw, will receive a prize package of Blue Fern Studios chipboard!
In addition, we will also select 3 (or more) layouts to feature.
We have just a few simple rules to follow if you would like to participate in our sketch challenge:
1.) Feel free to interpret the sketch as you please by means of taking it as-is or 
flipping/turning/mirroring it to suit your needs! 
2). Please note that you can do whatever type of project you please - a layout, card, 
  canvas, altered item- whatever suits your mood and style! 
We would love to see the different ways our sketch can be used.
3.) You must use at least one piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard OR use Blue Fern Studios paper on your project. Please note that you do not need to use the pieces featured in the sketch
- use whatever suits your fancy! You can find the store nearest you HERE.
 {Do not use any other brand of chipboard on your project please!}
4.) Upload your project using the Inlinkz tool on the Blue Fern Studios Blog
midnight EST on January 31, 2016.

Hope you will join us!  For inspiration from our design team, please visit the Blue Ferns Studio Blog here.

Thanks for stopping by!
