Hello everyone! Angelica here today to share my June projects with you! Since being on the DT I've been using one paper collection each month. Well, time to mix it up. Today, my three layouts are from three different paper lines.

First up is my take on the June Sketch just flipping it. I used two papers Ombre Dreams Collection; Charlotte's Dream and Joyce's Dream.
 
I used the Beaded String Chippy to further embellish my title. I used the word "Smile" for the Laughter, Happy, Smile set. The cute little dragonfly is from my Etsy Shop.
 
I used the Circle Vine chipboard piece to hold my photos.

For this page I used Boudoir from the Blue Fern Garden collection as my background. I fussed cut the Wisdom paper from the Montage Collection and matted my photo.

I really don't do much to my chipboard pieces. Just some thick gesso and mists.  Here I used the Estate Railing piece.
 One of my favorite chippies are the Roman Clock Sets. Here I used the Large Set. The Plush Butterfly embellishments are from my Little Scrap Shop.

 Last but not least, I used the Love Story Collection. My daughter loves Alice in Wonderland so I made this for her. This line was perfect! I used the True Harmony, Twenty One, and Amazing Heart papers.
 I used the Queen of Hearts piece for my title and Heart Crowns as embellishments.
 The Card Suit Melody chippy is so unique! Love it! The Scarlett Butterflies are from my Etsy Shop.
 
Well, I hope that you've enjoyed my projects for June! I will be back in August for I'm breaking for July!

Swirlydoos May Kit, Spring Chic

 Hi everyone! The time has finally come to share my May projects using the gorgeous, girly girl "Spring Chic" Kit. I loved the pretty pinks and teals! Definitely a spring kit!
 
For my first project is my take on the sketch. I just flipped it to better accommodate my one photo. The dragonflies are something I created to match the kit. You can find them at my Little Scrap Shop on Etsy.

 May Sketch
 

 Pink Pink and more Pink! LOL! I really liked that saying on one of the papers. I wanted to be sure to use it as a focal point over my photo. I also digitally created these dragonflies. Another new addition to my Etsy Shop.
 
 The colors of this kit got me thinking of a tea party. So, I made one of my Teapot Stickpin Holders.
 Lastly, I made an altered clipboard as a birthday gift for my daughter's best friend. I'm hoping they will grow up together because they're just the sweetest friends. The photo can be replaced with a new one as time progresses.

Blue Fern Studios May Projects

Hello friends! Today I'm here to share with you my May projects using the Deja Vu Collection.

My first project is a layout based on BFS May's sketch. I lightly painted the La Plume paper with some watered down gesso. Then did some misting. I used the Friperies paper as the background photo mat. The Mystic Dragon Flies are from Little Scrap Shop on Etsy.

For the title I used the word "Wonder" from the Delight Set. I also used the Deja Vu Collage Border. The three chipboard pieced I used were all treated the same. First I applied gesso and misted with three different color mists.

The bird cage is from the "Tweets" Collection.

I loved the colors in the Lustre paper. It's like a greenish gray, so I mixed in some purple. I also used the Atelier paper for some background layering.

The title "Discover" is from the  Journey, Discover, Explore Set. I misted it with a dark color so it can pop off the page.

When I was searching for a photo I found the young  woman at the door or window. I thought that the Sara's Screen Door chippy was a perfect match.
 I used two of the four Small Symphony Corners to further frame my photo.

For my last project I made a canvas. I took a 10x8 and put three small 3x3 on top for dimension. I first treated the canvas with mist. Then did some masking with modeling paste. I used some scraps from the Un Voyage A Paris papers.
I used bits from the Quatrefoil Panel.

The butterflies are from the Magical Monarchs Set.

Thanks for taking a peek! See ya next month!
