Feb. Blue Fern Studios Projects

Hello friends! I'm happy to be here today to share three layouts I created using the beautiful new collection, Love Story. This is collection is so pretty and versatile. Some of the papers have vibrant bold colors and others are more subtle. Good for those shabby pages!

My first layout is based on the February Sketch. I used the lightest paper, The Grand Ball, for the base of my page and the Calling Card paper. I did some masking and used the little stars on the Forever Stamp for some texture. The Mystic Dragonflies are from my Etsy Shop.

I painted the Boston Lattice, Love, and Heart Set with heavy gesso. For the negative part of the heart I stamped with the Texture Stamp 1 when the gesso was still wet. It left a nice impression of the honeycombs. Once all the pieces were dry I did some misting for some color.

For my second page I want to use a whole different color combo from the sketch page. The reds and greens in the True Harmony paper is gorgeous.  I also used the Twenty One paper for layering. I painted the Brick Panel chippy with gesso and stucco paste. Then rubbed some ink on the raised texture. You can also find the Prismatic Butterflies in my little scrap shop.

 For the Cherish chippy I just painted it red and added glitter so it can pop from the page.

Finally, for my third page I've been waiting for the perfect time to use the Brown Eyed Girl Chippy.
The colors that I had in mind worked just right with the Sweet Song, Concerto, and Calling Card papers. I cut a bit off the end of the Beaded Strings chippy. I used my customer favorite butterflies, Vintage Petite Glasswings.

Thank you for visiting! I hope that I've inspired you!
