Blue Fern Studios - Forever

Howdy everyone!

Sharing a page I created for Blue Fern Studios using their new Remnants Collection. This layout probably has a bit more of a masculine feel to it but I have added small little details to help give it some softness. The colouring for this page was inspired by the colour of the Tungsten wedding band being placed on my brothers finger.

'Forever'


For this page I chose to use the Callaway patterned paper from the Remnants collection. I love the grungy feel it has while having a slightly purplish tinge to it. This layout still has a lot of white space happening even though the cluster is more large and open. It also has a steampunk feel to it which I love.


The base of the cluster started with Bits Of Honey chipboard and then built up by adding Cogs & Gears chippy and some flowers. These were all painted with black gesso and then coloured with Finnabair metallique wax.


The background was stamped with the honey bits stamp and embossed with Ebony embossing powder.


The circular frame over the photo are the throw away pieces from the small Roman Clock set, I never throw away chipboard shapes as you never know when they will come in handy. The Forever title piece was cut from the Families are Forever chipboard title.


Throughout the background of the page I added a sprinkling of Twig seedlings and some coordinating beads and pearls.

Blue Fern Studios - Happy

Hi Everyone!

Stopping in today to share a page I created simply because I wanted to. It is just so pretty and has gotten back to a my love of a little fussy cutting. It is from an older Blue Fern Studios Collection called Deja' Vu. It is a collection that I have had for a while and just haven't had time to use until now.

'Happy'


So pretty right? 


I fussy cut some of the flowers from the papers and added a sprinkling of Prima flowers. The colours coordinated so well. I added some Blue Fern Studios chipboard for added interest and to frame my photo.


I added a lot of cotton thread to add softness to the overall page.


In the background I added some Blue Fern Studios 'Tickled' seedlings, they are so so sweet in colour and were perfect for this page.

Dusty Attic - Christmas Pinecone Decoration

Hello!

Sharing a super cute little pine cone Christmas decoration today that I created using Dusty chipboard. So in the last release of Dusty chipboard there was a chipboard sheet of flower stamens, well these were destined for bigger more dimensional things. They kind of reminded me of fireworks so I went about wetting them and pulling them apart to actually create a layout using them as a dimensional background, but once they were dry I started to play with them and realized once they were layered it totally reminded me of a pine cone. I knew that I had Dusty Pine Sprigs so the idea come to life.

'Christmas Pine Cone'


Looks like a pine cone right?


All of the flower stamens were wet then gently pulled apart and left to dry. To join them together to make the pine cone shape I cut small squares of chipboard to glue between each layer centre. There are 4 small squares between each layer.


The Pine Sprig leaves were also wet and pulled apart for added dimension and give more of a needle feel.


I attached the Pine Sprig leaves to the top of the pine cone and then added some ribbon, flowers and beads to the top. It looks so pretty!
