My Blue Fern Studios projects for September using NEW Autumn Anthology.

Hi there. I hope you are all well.
I have been pretty busy juggling two jobs and trying to fit in some me time in between.
At least it's good to have some awesome supplies to play with when I DO find the time,....
My two pages here show off some sheets from the new beautiful paper collection Autumn Anthology from Blue Fern Studios.  Michelle Singh simply came up with a mixture of stunning designs and some of my most favourite colours.(again!)

Here is my first page with the collection:

Did you know that Blue Fern Studios now even carry mists? There will be new mists with each collection and I used two of the new colours here; Imagine Inks Leaf and Sky.

I painted the chipboard title-words a neutral beige colour and decorated with some micro beads.
I used  the stunning  Jackie's Window to ground my design and this one is also painted with a mix of acrylic paint and some green mist. After it dried I went over the edges with a small chalk ink pad.

As you can see I  used some of the new stamps on my page. 
I used all three designs from the Essential Textures set. 
I cut out the banner that you can see under the chipboard from one of the calling cards.
The title is made of a couple of words from the  Chunky Words set.

To make my flower cluster complete I added a few small chipboard twigs called Berry Stems. 
I love the brown colour they were painted and the delicate look of them. 

Ok, now for my second page for today:

 Another beautiful sheet from the Autumn Anthology collection
I actually fussy cut a part of one paper and added it on top of this blue one, (in case you go looking for a paper that looks like this :-D)

I used the Royal Heart Frame to surround the photo on top of the layers of paper and calling cards.

After I painted the heart frame a suitable colour I heat-embossed it with gold using one of the same textured stamps as above. I think the look is really neat!! 

I added a few bits and pieces from the inside of larger chipboard pieces. 
I find these are good to hold on to as they can be really useful.

 As you see from the shot here I have added quite a lot of media to my layered papers. 
I added different Prima Art Ingredients beads as well as glitter gel, paint, gesso, and ink. 
I used some Fine Prima Art Sugar which means there is a certain shimmer to the page that does not come through in the pictures.

Finally a little reminder that there's still ample time to join in our sketch challenge for September.

Below is a picture of the sketch and a page I made as an example.
