Peaceful. . . Featuring Blue Fern Studios Tranquility Paper Collection

Hi everyone!  I'm back to share another layout created for Blue Fern Studios featuring 
the new Tranquility collection.

My layout features the Peaceful paper and flowers from Tranquil Blooms.    Some random stamping with the Bourbon Street and Romantic Textures stamps,  embossing with Chili Powder Imagine Ink Embossing Powder and a sprinkling here and there with Imagine Ink Tangerine Glitter, along with some light masking and paint splatters.   I used the Serenity side B , Calling Cards and Jubilation papers to create layers under the photo. 

On each side of the photo I used the Tranquil Foliage Chipboard, embossed with Auburn, Chili Powder, Mushroom and Sage Imagine Ink Embossing Powders. I added some dimension with  some Imagine Ink Tangerine Glitter, gold micro beads and chunky glass glitter.

Here I placed a Royal Monarch Butterfly chipboard which I embossed with a mixture of Auburn, Chili Powder, Mushroom and Sage embossing powders.

The title Peaceful was embossed with a mixture of Auburn, Chili Powder, Mushroom and Sage embossing powders.

Serenity . . . Featuring Blue Fern Studios Tranquility Collection

Hi everyone!   Today I have another layout to share with you created with the new  Blue Fern Studios Tranquility paper collection, chipboard, and flowers.  I really enjoyed working with the new papers.  The muted tones in the Tranquility paper collection were a perfect match for some added vibrant pops of color.
For my background I used the Blissful side B paper.  I added some random stamping with the Serendipity Medley and Romantic Accents stamps and misted with the Imagine Ink Winter Mint Mist.    The layers under the photo are from Calling Cards, Serenity and Patience. I also added flowers from the new Tranquil Blooms, Tranquil Lilies and Courtship Blooms.

I used the new Jubilation Corner Chipboard and embossed it with a mixture of the Mushroom, Melon, Cotton Candy and Sea Mist embossing powers. Aren't the new flowers pretty!!

To the right of my photo I used the Butterfly Friends, embossed with the same embossing powers that I used on the Jubilation Corner.

My title Serenity is from the Serenity, Calm, Hushed Chipboard set which I inked dark brown.
