Blue Fern Studios July Projects!

Good morning! I'm here today to share with you my July projects for Blue Fern Studios! I've got a layout, card, and tag lined up for you so let's get started :)

"Very Best of Times"
I've combined here a variety of Blue Fern chipboard and paper amidst some background work. I really loved this photo of my daughter and wanted something pretty yet fun and simple all at the same time. The fun color palette of the Ombre Dreams paper combined with the lovely chipboard pieces that I chose really helped to accomplish that :)

This "Lace Rounds" piece was simply stamped with a pastel yellow chalk ink from Prima. I left some of the detailed bits unpunched from the chipboard. 

I thought that this frame from the "Memory Frames" set worked out just great for this page. I painted it with pastel yellow acrylic paint, then stamped with clear embossing ink, added some pastel pink embossing powder and set with a heat gun. Above and below my frame I added one of the "Jeweled Trinkets" pieces (cut in half) and added some gems and other embellishments to add a little more interest.

"Dare to be Yourself"
For this card I used some bits and pieces that I had of chipboard. It was a fun way to put them to good use- and all they needed was a random splatter of gesso!

Finally, I have a tag to share. I've taken another of the "Lace Rounds" pieces and misted it with a Prima Color Bloom spray mist. Then, while wet, added white embossing powder and set with a heat gun. For the large "Tattered Butterflies" piece, I applied microbeads and seed beads using glossy accents.
