We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!
I'm loving Blue Fern Studios new collection, Autumn Anthology.  Lots of pretty colors to work with!
I have to say this is my favorite paper from this collection. I didn't want to cover it up to much or over distress. I used the mask that came in the medium-add on and the Stone Effect dimensional medium on the chipboard piece. The dragonflies are from my Etsy shop. I just changed them up by removing the flower from the center and adding pearls.
Here I wanted to work with the pretty blue and peach papers. I did some fussing cutting of the tea cup from the collage paper. I really love to add doilies to my layouts. Because they're white you can color them to your liking.  I used the Blue Fern Studio Mist that came in the Medium-Add on.
 I did lots of layering here. I gutted out the center of the papers them layered them on top of each other. Between layers I tucked doilies and trim.

This is the Ceiling Tile from the Embellishment Add-on. I painted it with gesso then misted it. I used the BoBunny die cut pieces that also came in the  Embellishment Add-on as my main focal point.
 This is my take on the October sketch. We got the little sun catchers in the main kit but I wanted to shabby them up. I painted it with gesso then misted it with the Blue Fern Studio Mist that came in the Medium-Add on. I also misted the Petaloo flowers from the Flower-Add on with a light pink.
 Here is the sketch. Be sure to play along in our sketch challenge. Anyone can enter. More details HERE.
