Today I'm going to share with you how to get the most out of your chipboard- AND its packaging. So let's get started~!
"Stay This Way"
My heart swells when I look at this- my gorgeous baby boy! I wish I could freeze him just as he is now- sweet, beautiful, innocent. I cannot imagine him any different- and I don't want to :(. He is so precious to me.
Now, before I start to cry- let's take a look at the first piece we will be focusing on:
I began with a very routine step of priming the piece first with gesso. I then took a flourish stamp and stamped randomly with red ink before covering with Glossy Accents and sprinkling with various beads.
The piece was then split in half and placed to the upper-right and lower-left of my photos.
I've taken the large butterfly from this set and again started by priming it with gesso. I then covered it with Glossy Accents before dusting with clear glitter and just a smattering of light blue microbeads.
This piece was also split in half and then placed on opposing sides of the canvas, accenting my flower clusters.
Next, let's focus on the packaging! Blue Fern Studios products are beautiful in themselves, but with them comes a beautiful insert that is equally as pretty and meant to be used in any of your papercrafting projects. It is from this beautiful packaging that my color scheme was inspired.
I hand cut the clock/floral images from two different packages.
One of them I placed to the right of my photos...
The other I split in half and placed beneath and to the left of my photos.
I've provided links to the C'est Magnifique store where you can purchase Blue Fern Studios products. If you are a retailer, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you might have about how to get these beautiful products into your own store!
I'd love it if you would drop by the Blue Fern Studios blog HERE and become a follower. There are giveaways and other fun things going on, as well as future challenges. Don't miss out on any of it~!
And speaking of giveaways, I'm feeling one coming on...I am thinking I might need to send out a little RAK to a lucky commenter from either here or my post over at the Blue Fern blog HERE ;)...
Thanks for stopping by :)
