Memories Captured (Blue Fern Studios)


Here is my third and last layout for Blue Fern Studios this month.

Memories Captured

My last layout uses the Tranquility collection. I chose the Peaceful paper as my background. The Serenity paper was also used to mat my picture.

On my background, I used the Making Plans stamp.

To add texture to this layout, I used the Shabby Brick Bits, embossed with Auburn Imagine Ink embossing powder.

To embellish, I used Courtship Blooms, Tranquil Roses and Lilies as long as Tranquil Blooms.

My title, Memories Captured, is embossed with dark brown embossing powder.

Have a nice day.

A Wonderful Life (Blue Fern Studios)


I'd like to share my second layout for Blue Fern Studios.

A Wonderful Life

For this second layout, I used the Key paper, also from the Attic Charms collection.

To mat my picture, I used the Calling Cards papers, also from Attic Charm. On the background, I used the Brocade Texture stamp.

Over my picture, I used one of the Looped Frames, embossed with Ginger Imagine Ink embossing powder.

As for embellishments, I used some of the Tranquil Roses and Lilies, Tranquil Blooms and Courtship Blooms. Under those flowers, I used one of the Chelsea Vines chipboard, embossed with Verdant Imagine Ink embossing powder.

For my title, I used A Wonderful Life piece, embossed with dark brown embossing powder. I didn't get the light right because I didn't want the shadows behind my title piece to show. It was so distracting.

Here is a picture of the whole collection. Isn't it gorgeous?

Thanks for stopping by.

Blissful (Blue Fern Studios)


Here is my first layout for Blue Fern Studios.


I used the Haberdashery and Calling Cards papers from the brand new Attic Charm collection.

My composition is based on the beautiful Leaf Swirled Frame, which I embossed with the Imagine Ink embossing powder in Seven Seas.

I also used the Garden Lattice Bits with Ginger Imagine Ink embossing powder.

My title piece, part of the Blissful, Jubilation, Patience set is also embossed with Ginger Imagine Ink embossing powder.

As embellishments, I also used some of the GORGEOUS flowers from the Attic Charm #1 et #2 flowers set. (Have I told you how happy I am that Blue Fern Studios came up with flowers?)

Have a nice day.

Forever (Flying Unicorn)


I'm up today to share with you a second layout I made with the beautiful Barn Market collection from Riddersholm Design. 

It is called Forever. Here it is.

FU Forever2
I used the beautiful Blackboard paper as my background. To mat my picture, I used the Husked paper

My composition is based on the Flourish #1 stencil from Donna Downey which I used with modeling paste. I ended up covering most of it, but we still can see the end of it at the bottom of my layout. To add more texture, I used a stencil again with modeling paste.

I added some stamping with the Prima Wood Lines and Doorway stamps and black Archival Ink.

A bunch of flowers, some die cut leaves and some Jeni B Bleu Vibez to paint around my composition and everything came into shape. I also used some black ink to make some drops.

My title is from Scrapiniec. I embossed it.

All was left was to glue some Finnabar Splash micro beads and Turquoise glass beads with gel medium.

I hope my two projects inspired you. Have a great day.

Sweet (Shimmerz Paints)

Hi everybody,

Hope this post finds you well. I'm up today to share with you a layout I made for Shimmerz Paints. 

Here it is.

FU Sweet
This paper from Riddersholm Design inspired me an unusual color combo. I chose the Rolling in the Hay and Deep Blue Sea Vibez, which I applied with a brush.

I just love how the Rolling in the Hay Vibez makes this whole layout come to life.

Happiness (Shimmerz Paints)


I'm sharing today a layout I made for Shimmerz Paints. I wanted a soft feel for this sweet picture of my kids.

After using clear gesso and modeling paste, I used mainly two colors to build my background: Keep Palm Coloringz and Olive Branch Spritz. I used my paintbrush to make drops. I used water to help the colors blend in some places.

Next, I used my Don't Be Suede Coloringz to add a bit of contrast. Once again, I used my paintbrush to make drops.

I used the beautiful Birdsong Melody paper from the Sanctuary collection (Blue Fern Studios). And did you know Blue Fern Studios now make flowers? On the picture above, you can see one of the Courtship Blooms (the brown flower, on the bottom left).
