One Collection, 3 Different Ways {Blue Fern Studios}

Hi! I cannot believe it's been a week since I've posted! I'm so busy, I cannot seem to keep my head straight. I will be able to share some news (non-scrap related) with you soon hopefully, but for now I have to keep it to myself as I really want things to work out!

But anyways, we have a LONG post to get through today- I have THREE Blue Fern Studios projects to share~! And for each of them, I've used the gorgeous new Prima Lyric collection- but created three different looks :)- this is definitely not the last you will see me use this range- it's amazing!!

So let's get started~!!

This project was created on an 8"x10" canvas. I love this beautifully soft photo of my niece Lilah, so I wanted to create a romantic piece with lots of stamping and bursts of color. Let's take a closer look at the Blue Fern Studios chipboard used here:

I've used pink crackle paint on the Princess Window piece before smattering with microbeads. Then I topped it off with a piece cut from the Symphony Border, misted it, and stamped to correlate with my bakcground.

I LOVE keys. I've painted this one from the Vintage Keys set with gesso, applied a very light pink mist to it, and then stamped over top. Then I brushed on some Stickles, added the heart gem and some tulle at the top.

This Vintage Locks piece was also lightly misted and then stamped.

Princess Window 074578

Vintage Locks 074783

Vintage Keys 075032

"Our Bond"
My second project is a layout, featuring how easy it is to use chipboard in its raw fashion, which I love to do! 

The Calligraphic Border provides dimension, texture, and detail to the layering beneath my photos. I felt that by leaving it raw, it really stood out like I wanted it to :).

"Hello" {Tag}
My final project today is this tag. I love the smaller chipboard pieces for projects like these! So much fun to put together :)

I've combined a dress form from the Miss Taylor Set, as well as the larger butterfly out of the Brigitte Butterfly set to dress up this tag. I used a combination of Glimmer Mist and embossing powder to set the base of my dress form. I then added the tulle skirt and some seed beads for the bodice. Finally, the little heart accent was put in place.

For the butterfly, I used some light misting and embossing powder as well, before adding my stamping. Finally I trimmed up the tops of the wings with some microbeads.
