Blue Fern Studios August Projects

Hello everyone,

I have 2 layouts to share with you today showcasing some super super gorgeous Blue Fern Chipboard and papers.

My first layout is using the Deja Vu collection papers again.. I started with the layering 2 peices of paper from the collection as my base then I placed the gorgeous Butterfly Grid over the top which I covered in Gesso first.


Before I stuck my Butterfly Grid down I partially cut out come of the butterflies to "lift" them off the page and make them come to life.  This was perfect way to show this photo of my little man who is always outside, its his favourite place to be, always trying to catch butterflies.

Products Used:
Papers: Deja Vu
Chipboard:  Butterfly Grid, Memory Frames, Picture Perfect

My next layout is using papers from the Ombre Dreams Collection.  Don't think I will ever tire of using that collection.

I have added lots of masculine type chipboard to this layout. I love to layer and layer my chipboard to create lots of demension, texture and interest to my page.


I always start with covering my chipboard with Gesso.  This will hold any colour of ink to your chipboard.  I glue everything down and then I add my colours.  Using a fine paint brush I randomly flick my colours around and spreading it further by misting it with water.

Products Used:
Papers: Ombre Dreams
Chipboard:  Circle Links, Cogs and Gears, Faucets, Hooks and Keys, Lightbulbs, Moving Parts, Techno-Scape, Software Peices

Thank you so much for stopping by:)

Blue Fern Studios - Deja Vu: My Sweet Baby Boy

Hello everyone,

A month or so ago I created this layout for Blue Fern Studios and I have released I haven't share it here on my blog.

This was the 1st project I created using the Deja Vu collection.

"My Sweet Baby Boy"

And some close ups:

I love the touches of black in this layout..makes the colours really pop and draws your eye around the layout.

I did lots of background work to this layout...its hard to capture it on camera.  Texture paste, crackle paste, inks, mists and stamping. I thoroughly enjoyed the process.

I will be back soon to share some more recent work for Blue Fern.

Have a great day :)
