Yesterday ~ Blue Fern Studios Sketch Sample!

Hello, hello!

My latest project was based on this month's Blue Fern Studios Sketch by Michele Singh. You can find the October Challenge HERE.  We hope you'll find time to play along! 

This is my Design Team sample: 


I've been waiting to scrap this sweet photo since last November. As a Designer I am always working ahead, so I was using Christmas paper by the time I got the photo. This is sweet granddaughter Zoe with a pumpkin almost half as big as her! 

I dug back for an old favorite of mine, the Ombre Collection, specifically Leslie's Dream and Shannon's Dream. I took this opportunity to use the French Ironwork chipboard to anchor my design. I doubled my photos and nested then on some Calling Card, Shannon's Dream, cheesecloth and flowers! 

The Seasonal Wildflowers are a favorite of my as well, especially for outdoor scenes. Tp add color I've used a combination of Lime and Sage Embossing Powder. 

The French Ironwork is a majestic piece that I could used over and over. There are so many ways you could alter this for your designs. Here I've inked the piece and then added Nutmeg, 14 Karat and Chili Powder. The Yesterday title was treated the same. 

My Attic Charm flowers seemed a perfect match for my little pumpkin patch, so I used the Glitter Roses and Attic Charm Daisies to complete my design. I added a few simple textural pieces such as cheese cloth and seam binding. To draw the eye to the center of the page, I use Persimmon Imagine Ink Mist around the central design to blend everything together and then to splatter on the page. 

Just a dab of gesso and I'm done with this one! 

Blue Fern Studios products used:
Paper: Ombre Dreams Leslies Dreams, Shannon's Dreams and Calaling Cards
Chipboard: French Ironwork, Seasonal Wildflowers, Today, Tomorrow, Yesterday
Embossing Powder: Nutmeg, 14 Karat and Chili Powder

I think that wraps up October for me.
