Blue Fern Studios - Happy

Hello!

Quick post today to share a layout and tutorial created for Blue Fern Studios. I created a page for my son. I am always asked do you ever scrap boys? Well yes it just depends if my son wants to play along and have his photo taken.

'Happy'


This layout features fussy cut images from the Patience patterned paper from the Tranquility collection. I think the colours and images were perfect for a boyish page and look not a flower in sight.


Throughout the cluster I have placed some of the Blue Fern Shabby Brick Bits chipboard which has been coloured lightly to coordinate with my page.


To frame the photo and add extra texture I have used some this Jute string, I love its natural colouring. I have also added a little sprinkling of seedlings to this.


Between layers I have again used a natural coloured frayed cheesecloth which I have in places coloured with coordinating watercolour paint.


How cute is that little bird? Once again I have used the patterned paper title label strips that are cut off the pattern paper. The Tranquility strips had those cute little blue butterflies.

Blue Fern Studios - My Inspiration

Hello!

Quick post today to share another Blue Fern Studios Layout. I chose to go back to a favourite of mine white background. I chose to add fussy cut layers and add some of the Blue Fern mixed media ingredients. I have also created a step by step tutorail so maybe you can try your own or put your own spin on it.

'My Inspiration'


To create the main cluster I started by fussy cutting the flourishes from the Garden Life Morning Dew patterned paper.


In between each of the fussy cut layers I added a mixture of flowers and frayed cheesecloth. The background was created with a mixture of mica powders and paints. As I like my clusters to be tight I only allowed a little of the colour to show from behind.


In the background I also added Blue Fern seedlings and glitters. The main flower is one of the gorgeous white roses from the Garden Blooms set which was recoloured to coordinate with layout.


For the title I cut down the Blue Fern You Are My Inspiration chipboard title to just my inspiration bcause that is what my children are. All chipboard was left entirely raw.


And here is my tutorial, I hope you enjoy it.

Blue Fern Studios - My Loves

Howdy!!

Dropping in today to share a layout created for Blue Fern Studios. For this layout I mixed and matched collections. I have used papers from Amber & Apricot, Wanderlust and Seaside Cottage. I amazes me how beautifully the collections mix and match.

'My Loves'


So for this page was created with lots of fussy cut images from the different papers to create the dimensional cluster. The birds, brown leaves and yellow roses were cut from Birdsong and Sunny Deposition papers from the Amber And Apricot collection.


To get the fussy cut rose to blend into the paper I used the Penned Flourishes stamp and stamped a little more over the papers edge with black ink. It helped to blend it in perfectly.


In between each layer i added folded flowers and shredded cheesecloth to add extra interest and texture.


The frame around the top of my photo was cut from the In the Mood chipboard sheet and covered with some of the Seaside Cottage Mermaid patterned paper.
