'My first Home' for Blue Fern Studios.

Recently I posted a few pages on the Blue Fern Studios blog.
I was in the UK last week celebrating my eldest daughters graduation from university and must admit I am a little behind wity posting my projects here on my own personal blog,....But here is one of them !!

This page is based upon a pink paper from the Montage collection. 
On top is a paper from the Deja Vu collection. As yo can see the collections mix very well.
-Especially when you add a litttle mixed media here and there. :-)
I 'framed' the whole page with the largest sized Graduated Squares, painted white then inked around.

 The gorgeous piece of chipboard below the picture is one of the recent shapes and called
  Rock Wall Bits. I painted it beige, stamped on it and added some pink glitter. 
The part of the Grunge Frames chipboard piece visible above the photo was given the same treatment. 
I just love to add glitter to my pages at the moment :-)

The cute small dots scattered all over my page are the insides of then alpha stickers that I used.

Finally a better look at the Prima resin by Ingvild Bolme. It is such  a beautiful and decorative piece!!

That was all for now, Hope you feel a little bit inspired and that I'll  see you here again soon!
Take care!

'Hello Sunshine' for Les Papiers de Pandore.

Time for one more of my summery pages or Les Papiers de Pandore. 
I am actually up on the French blog today as well and would love you to chek out the
Pandore blog too if you have time :-) There are so many lovely projects to look at!!

The current collections/Happy Mail are so fresh and feel very current. I love the beautiful designs and colours of them. I have usede 'Sunny Bay' and 'Cocktail' here.

I used the Blue Fern Studios Directions chipboards and you can see it HERE. I painted the pieces 
a soft seafoam colour.

I used one of the badges as a centerpoint for my cluster. I cut the leaves with my Silhouette and the chipboard is part of the same set by Blue fern Studios.

The many project life-styl cards are so cute and makes it so easy to embellish the page.

Aren't the colours just super pretty!!?

And finally a closie of how I layered my more 'clean and simple' page.

Thank you for looking!! :-)

A summery page for Les Papiers de Pandore.

A while back I told you bout the new collections from Les Papiers de Pandore and I also showed 
you a little sneak peek of my page,... Well here is the finished page using the beautiful 'Sunny Bay' and 'Coctail' collections. I love the beautiful design of the papers and also each collection comes with a cute flair buttons that match perfectly. This is Summer to me!!

And here are a few pictures to give you a closer look :-)
The long title is a Silhouette cut file by the way :-)

I used my beloved Sizzix Big Shot Plus (see it HERE , -and HERE you can see the entire starter kit which is great value for money!!) to cut out the title using the Block Talk Alphabet.  I found one of my older glossy cardstock papers from a few years back and really like the way it turned out.

The badge in the picture below is one of the two that I received with the new collections.

The collections also come with some amazing stamps and this is just one of them!

I hope you liked my page today.I must say it feels great to be back making creations for

July challenge at Blue Fern Studios and a page.

Hey, it seems like July arrived very quickly this year!  Hardly any Summer to speak of until the first days of this month, but now finally the warmth has arrived!

At the beginning of the month as usual there is a new gorgeous sketch up on the Blue Fern blog.

I am sure you'll agree it's beautiful.

And of course I have a page to show that I made as sketch inspiration:

I usede a paper from the very first paper collection from Blue Fern Studios called Blue Fern Garden.

The chipboards I used are:
Laughter, Happy, Smile
Floral Clock.

....-And here are some close ups as well:

 I used lots and LOTS of glitter on my chipboards and on my background. Prima has some really great sets with lovely matching colours.
I also used mist and Luminarte water colours on my background.

 I ordered a new batch of flowers and I am loving the colours,.... -So Summery! I even added a sprinkle of enael dots and Prima 'glitter dots'(Say it in Chrystals).

To add the glitter and to get it to look kind of textured I used glue  that I added in 'lines' and then sprinkled glitter on top.

Here and there you can see some Prima glass pearls as well, from the Finnabair Art Ingredients mixed media collection.

And here peeking through is the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios Floral Clock. I used gesso on top before adding some watercolour paint, some glossy medium and finally the glitter.

Thanks for looking in today! See you again soon!!
