Complices (Blue Fern Studios)


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


For my last layout, I started with the Nature's Novel paper. I love the earth tones of this one. 

I used my new favorite stamp: the Crackle Texture stamp, here and there, on the background. A few shades of ink (aqua, brown and yellow) here and there, and background was done. 

I had this idea of a torn band of paper going diagonally on my layout. I used the Photographic Record paper to do so. I tucked some pieces of the Turkish Bits chipboards set behind the paper, to add interest. I embossed the chipboards with Mushroom Imagine Ink embossing powder and while it was still hot, I sprinkled some Sand & Sea Imagine Ink embossing powder over it. I believe this powder will quickly become my favorite!

For my main embellishment cluster, I chose the Seaside Flourish chipboard, which I cut apart to keep just the flourish and the flowers. You can see, in the picture above, How I cut the anchor and the two stars and keeps everything else.

I used brown Ink to color this chipboard and then, I dry brushed some white gesso to make it stand out a bit more. 

In this cluster, I used a lot of Blue Fern Studios flowers: little Courtship Blooms, some Spring Lilies and, of course, the beautiful Mémoires Blooms. 

I used those flowers again in the two other clusters I made.

I mated my picture with the Calling Cards paper. My title piece comes from the Amis, Ensemble, Complices set. I treated it with the same steps as I did with the other chipboards on this layout. 

I hope my layouts inspires you to dig in this BEAUTIFUL new collection.

Have a great day,
