My 1st October Blue Fern Studios projects!

Hello, everyone! 

I'm here today to share my first October Blue Fern Studios projects using the Autumn Anthology collection. Fall colors are a fave of mine, so this was just plain FUN!


Starting with a vintage photo of my mom, I've used the Le Ballon and Mercantile paper as my base and focused on a few fave pieces of chipboard, the Oval Daisy Frame and the new French Ironworks .. so gorgeous! I painted them with some distress paint and then did some random embossing with a gold embossing powder. I was going for a very rusted look. I finished the pieces off with a dab of metallic patina. 

Of course, there is some mixed media in the background and use of the new Imagine Mist in Persimmon as well as the texture stamp. Persimmon is such a great color! I've fussy cut and layering in some pieces from the Calling Cards and some butterflies from Frolic Dans le Jardin. 


Love to frame my photos with chipboard! 

This new French Ironwork is so intricate .. in love! 

I snipped it into two pieces and used some here.
