July inspiration for Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone!
I'm back to share with you my new layouts of month.

My first one is :

The young woman was silent ...


For this layout I have to work in layer, several paper of the collection happy accident,
 a few paper cut and my chipboards.
I used Fortuity paper.
First my background is very simple a little cheese cloth here and there and some stamping with Serendipity medley and Grungy grid stamp. 
In the foreground the title "Story" embossed with the embossing powder "Copper". 
Under this one a chipboard of the kit "Spring Trinkets" embossed with Snow embossing powder, I then sprinkled with brilliant burnt copper.
On both sides of the title, the chipboard ginger's poppies embossed with Pink Dust embossing powder. 
Which I cut in two and placed on two different layers under the photo
Under the top of the picture, we find part of the chipboard Holiday Deer 
( No one said that deer live only in winter ... ;) But I removed the snowflakes from the chipboard.
I cut the chipboard so as to keep that central part for the top of my photo 
the other two pieces of the chipboard are layered under the flowers on the right side of the photo.
I embossed them with oatmeal embossing powder and distressed with light brown ink pad.
If we look again on the left side of the picture we find one of the kit chipboards Petite Boutique Frames.
I embossed it with the powder "snow" then I made a crackle treatment and then I added pink ink to bring out the cracks. 
Then I glued a piece of lace to the back.
I also used two deer from the kit "winter deer" I also embossed them with Oatmeal embossing powder and distresser with light brown ink pad.
I used small pink flowers from Courtship Roses kit.

Here is a few close ups:

My two others layouts featuring Garden Life Collection

Capture life's moments

For the first of two, I used Felicity paper.
This background is a little more sophisticated than the first.
 I started by creating my texture then I played with ink and stamps.
 I really like the attached letter writing of "Serendipity Medley"stamp.
 I used it with a black ink to create contrast.
Then with the chipboard "Shabby Brick Bits" I added a little more texture to my background. 
I embossed it with "Snow" and applied a thin layer of blue opalescent paint.

To embellish my photo, I always opt for layers of paper, thus creating depth to my creation.
Between the different layers I added here, my flowers. 
The daisy comes from the kit "Attic Charms Daisy" the roses come from the kit "Garden Blooms"
If you look on either side of my photo, I used a peony from the kit "Chesterville Blooms" that I cut in half.

As journaling for my layout I used few printed chipboards from Garden life 
and "inspiration" come from Happy Accident printed chipboard.

Have you seen the new Rose Leaves chipboards? I love them! Here I painted them in green.
In the lower right corner of my page, there is a flower, normally white from Heartland Blossoms kit ... 
A happy accident made him fall into my ink ... and became like that ... I find her pretty!

I kept the best for the end ... my butterflies! (Royal Monarchs)
First of all, I put white gesso, after I used two different inks, one green and one gold.
 Then I made some white splash with gesso.
With a piece of lace that I inked with the same ink as my background, 
I stuck to the back of my butterflies. I really like the result!
So, you know everythings ...

And some close ups:

Blossom Story

For this layout I've not did mixed media background. 
I just played with the paper ... I cut it,  torn it, and distressed it.

I started with the paper "Flower Bed" which I drew the flowers with black pencil. 
Each of the flowers one after the other ... I spent the day ...
I've used almost all the paper in entire.
Each of the cut parts placed on different layers under my photo.

My title "story" is embossed in white and then half of the top is embossed in purple. 
I used Snow and Lavender Eggs embossing powder.

Butterflies are stamped on a paper of "Spring Parade / May Vignettes"
 I used "Bourbon Street" and "Spring Accents" stamps

The "Looped Frames" and "Quatrefoil Panel" chipboards are simply embossed in white with Snow  embossed powder.
The small piece from Quatrefoil Panel is embossed with Baby Pink embossing powder.
I also added chipboard Leafed Bough that I cut into several pieces. I painted this one in green.

I used several yellow flowers of the kit "Garden Blooms" but I removed the central 
part of the flowers to keep only the petal of the bottom.

See my close ups for all details.

The rules are easy, create an handmade background and use a letter ....
Here the wonderful moodboard, who gives the inspiration of mood from challenge.
You can see details HERE

I created a canva in two parts, a gift for my sister-in-law, the letters are 
the first letter of the first name of each of  his family.
I built all my background from wood letter, then I created my texture 
with beads, arts stones of Prima and many others things from my stash.

My canvas before part two:

For the second part, I used big grungeboard letters from Tim Holtz.
 I altered them with Blue Fern Studios paper from the Paisley & Vine collection.

With a bit of metal wire thread, I tied it all together and it became this ... 

That's it! You know everything.
 Thank you very much for stopping by!

See you soon,
