Mixed Media with Blue Fern Studios Products

Hello sweeties!
First, as you see, I'm always on the team! I'm so happy for that!
 I left the team last month because I was afraid of being unable to do 3 layouts
 per months with all the new change in my life ...
Everything arranged, and I'm here this month with 3 projetcs!! Yeahh, I did it!
I don't know if I'll be able to do it every months but I cross my fingers....
Everything's gonna be alright ... One day at a time...

So, let me introduce you my first project of month.
This is a layout, the others two are canvases...

************************************

*FLY*
( Remnants, Courtship Lane)



I started with the side B of Highgate paper as a base for my layout. Then, I tore my second paper, Bourbon Ave, and I placed it on my background in order to let see that the center of the first paper.


My Title ''Fly'' is embossed with Lavender Eggs .
All 
the others chipies are embossed with Ivory embossing powder.
At the moment when I designed this layout, BFS was no longer cutting chipboards ...
Happy news!!! They are back!!
Under my picture I placed 3 whole Spring Peony flowers. They are very big, BUT very beautiful!


A piece of lace 5 ( flowers and foliages only ) that I've inked and a
butterfly (from Butterflies Stamp ) stamped on acetate make a beautiful embellishment.


With the petals of Spring Peony I made new flower buds.


From the paper East Plaza ( Courtship Lane ) I cutted a tiny house... She's so cute!
3 Littles flowers cutted in the lace 4

*Enjoy Journey*( In the Mood )


This is my favorite project of the month. I started on the reverse of wooden canvas.
On the background, I stuck a piece of  side B Mellow paper. I used only the center of it.
Then I stamped before gluing pieces of Quilted Page Panel firstly painted with white gesso and partially embossed with Pink Dust embossing powder.
Thereafter, begins the decoration of the canvas.



Several layers ... Starting with the title, Journey is embossed with Ivory embossing powder.
Below the title, a Royal Monarch embossed with two colors : Oatmeal and Pink Dust.
In these two embossing powder we find the same gold shining. Really pretty colors!


I used Lace 10 as a tiny flowers everywhere on my layout. I just added a small bead in the center.
I also used Gold Nugget and Mauve seedlings to add a bling bling style...


The Moody Florals Flowers ... are'nt they lovely?! I used only this flowers everywhere on my layout, like a flowered branch through my deco.

*It's The Little Moments ... *
( In The Mood )



Initially I did'nt want to make this project a canvas, but I had difficulty with the large untouched space. So I decided to cut the top of my paper ( In The Mood, Flirty ) and stick it on a canvas. The two parts are separated by a piece of  white Lace !0.


I really like using quotes on my canvas and the Printed Chipboards of
 the Remnants collection are perfect for that.


A small frame from the Ironworks Accents simply painted. Inside, a piece of book paper embossed with Ginger embossing powder and Remnants Collage Stamp.On my flowers, Spring Lilies and Garden Blooms I added Glass seedlings, like little drops of water.


Firstly embossed in Pixie Dust, I decided to emboss this vintage label with Baby pink embossing powder... I don't know what I did for finish with a red side ... but I find it very pretty! LOL

Hello my sweet friends!
Today is very sad for me, this is my last day as a designer for Blue Fern Studios.
My life turns to change and priorities too. Don't worries, I feel good, but I have to take care of myself and all my family ... It's just a goodbye, I'll be back ...
So let me share with you my last inspirations.

====================================
My first one is:

*Perfect*
( Ombré Dreams, Leslie's dream )






I used Sunlight Rose to emboss the foliage chipboard under my photo.



I made this coral flowers by hand, from *Chesterville Floral*, one as simply heated with heat gun and the others are one layer of petal folded on itself.



Morning Sun make a part of my favorite colors of embossing powder.

m


This layout is the result of a big ink blunder on the first background. In seeking how to recover page, I had the idea of using the small format of the same paper as the background.
Here is the result or my error LOL

These days I have a great need for bright colors.
The blue flowers from Spring Lilies collection are so much PERFECT,
and combined with Summer Breeze embossing powder it's just WOW as effect.



I used Lace 3B to add some black under my first layer.


Butterfly is embossed with Summer Breeze.

Blue Fern studios March 2018

Hello everybody!
I'm back to share with you some new inspirations.
This month, two layouts of  '' In The Mood '' and one of  ''Chesterville'' ...

========================
My first one is :

*Lifetime Dream*
( In The Mood, Pensive )


************************************

mmmmmmm




For those who know me, know that I like to create or modified flowers.
I have almost the same tools as the florist...
For this layout I had fun with the Moody Flowers.
The first on the top is simply heated with heat gun, as is, then I added a bling as a center.
The others are only one layer of petal folded on itself.



The butterflies are embossed with Pixie Dust. The cercle ring embossed with Ivory, then I added a bit of pink pearl ink to contrast. The first layer of  chipboard flowers is embossed with a mixt of Baby Pik and Pixie Dust, and the other one embossed in snow and over heated with heat gun and ink too.


On my heart Gold Nugget seedlings.
n the center of Attic Charm Daisies flower, mix of two shades of pink: Tickled, Pink Glass and Gold Nugget too. Under the flower a piece of  Lace 12, ripped.

'' Dreamy '' is the title of one paper of the In the Mood Collection, I cut the word
on the paper and I scratched it.
'' Simply because ... '' comes from the printed chipboard sheet. I used another piece at the top of my page,  ''In The Mood ''



Butterflies in Pink Dust embossing powder and my Title ...
I did a test, not very conclusive, still pretty but not perfect ... I mixed two embossing powders, added to my chipboard with versamark and I heat it ...

My next one:

*Beautiful*
( In The Mood, Peaceful )






This paper it's really my favorite of the collection In The Mood,
I wanted to work it very romantic and especially in soft color.
So I choose to bring out the peach of the paper.

 For that, I used some die cut embossed with the embossing powder Copper. This color perfectly match with peach shades of the paper.
I could have used the flowers from the Chesterville Blooms collection, they were perfect but did not match the sweet ambiance I wanted to give. So I used the Late Winter Lilies in white.
I put Glass seedlings in my flowers, much like a flowing river
they follow a path to the bottom of my layout.




The Life round chipboard come from Garden Life Printed Chipboard, under this one another round chipboard Remnants Chipboard Printed.



With this last one picture, we can see all the shine of the embossing powder Copper and some pieces of Lace 12, that I ripped and placed under my flowers.
