Blue Fern Studios - Memories

Hello!!

Sharing a layout today created with the gorgeous new Tattered Walls Collection. This collection is amazing!! I love the rich colours and textures of the papers in this collection.

'Memories'


This layout was inspired by the rusty stains of the patterned paper. I really loved the colour and texture of this paper and found it perfect to create a page for my little man.


To create my main cluster I used quiet a few pieces of Blue Fern chipboard. The background started with the honeycomb bits chipboard. All of the chipboard and flower were coloured with rust paste to give that old rustic feel to my page.


I fussy cut the leaves from the Reading Room patterned paper and layered in between the flower and chipboard layers. The colour of the leaves perfectly complimented my page.


To add extra texture to my page I added some cotton thread, frayed cheese cloth and some plastic mesh from an old onion bag.


To finish off my page I added a sprinkling of Poppy and Twig seedlings.

Graphic 45 - Curiosity Cabinet

Hello!!

I have some exciting news to share. I have been lucky to have been chosen as a 2018 Brand Ambassador for Graphic 45. I so so love everything Graphic 45 and words could not express how happy I was to be chosen to represent this amazing company again.

For our first project we were asked to create a self portrait project showcasing our style, our favourite techniques and favourite Graphic 45 products. For me I simply could not choose one collection so I chose to mix and match to make my Curiosity Cabinet.

'Curiosuty Cabinet'


To create my cabinet I mixed the Rare Oddities, Olde Curiosity Shoppe and Steampunk Debutante. 


The cabinet features lots of fussy cut details and dimension. I absolutely love fussy cutting and because of this I have stayed with my idea of the more you look the more you will see.


I have added a little nest and tiny glass bottles to hold the rare oddities. I have added chipboard flourishes to the sides of the cabinet for added interest. The chipboard was painted with rust mica powder.


I have added a vine to help make my cabinet look full plus the pretty purple pink flowers add a feminine feel to the cabinet.

Blue Fern Studios - This Moment

Hi Everyone!

Quick post today sharing another page created with Blue Fern Studios Tattered Walls Collection. For this page I chose to work with The Garage patterned paper. The blue colouring of this paper is gorgeous!

'This Moment'


This page has been created using many layers of chipboard and is super dimensional. The stars were covered with glue and Black Ice glitter applied. 


To create a bit of a grungy feel i once again coated a lot of the chipboard and flowers with rust paste.


The title chipboard was left natural as it was already a deep tan colour and complimented the page well. I have cut the This Moment part off of the title chipboard piece.


To create added texture i have added natural Jute string and cotton thread.


To finish off the page I have once again added a sprinkling of seedlings.
