Blue Fern Studios July Creation #1

Hello there, Blue Fern Studios fans! 
Thanks for stopping by my Blog. 

I'm here with you today to share the first of my July projects using a variety of paper collections and chipboard as well as our other products which are so perfect for embellishing what we create! 

I'll start with a layout I created for my son-in-law in memory of his dad. This photo is very special to him and I had promised to scrap it for him. After several false starts, I finally found a great fit with the Serendipity Reminisce side A and then used Merriment, Calling Cards, Fascination and Chronicle for my photo layers.

This is "Bob and little granddaughter Peyton" standing by the lake.  So, I wanted to go with the blue tones and add pops of color as accents. I embossed the Chained bits with Seven Seas Embossing Powder. If you haven't tried that particular set, I highly recommend them.  Perfect for adding a little "edge" to your page. Of course, we needed some "plant life" to reside alongside the lake and I chose the newish Tranquil Foliage piece. After priming it with white gesso, I used gelatos and ink and then made a little sunflower which was Bob's favorite flower. 

My background was created with super heavy gesso and a stencil. To create more dimension, I used an embossing ink with the Wallflower Stamp and then coated it with Watermelon Glitter. 

This, of course, is a great shot of the amazing flowers Blue Fern is now carrying. These are the Attic Charm Glittered Rose and Attic Charm Daisies as well as a few of the Courtship Blooms. The chipboard title "Friends" is from the Arrow Words set and is embossed with Mushroom and then double-embossed with Honey. 

A Calling Card for a subtitle. 

More of the Watermelon stamping. 

I finished with some black ink splatters, cheesecloth and art stones.
