Blue Fern Studios Challenge

Hello Everyone!

For the first time i`m entering a layout challenge. I haven`t created many layouts. Can count them all on one hand, lol. As the deadline for this challenge is i the middle of the night for me, i had some poor light to take pics in. I will take some new ones in the morning. So i`m only posting this one, just so i could manage to enter the challenge in time.

Below i have posted some new pics and a little description on how i went about it.

Here is the sketch we are working from.

I have to warn you though. This is a picture heavy post, lol.

I started prepping my paper from Blue Fern Studios of course (Petit moments from the Frolic collection), with a thin layer of gesso. Next i used modelling paste with stencils from Prima and The Crafters Workshop randomly placed. I then spritzed it with sprays from Lindy`s Stamp Gang and Ranger.

After everything had dried up i stamped with a text stamp randomly placed. I primed the chipboard with gesso and when dry i spritzed with Perfect pearls Blue Smoke and Distress paint Weathered Wood. I also used Long John`s Silver moonshaddow mist with a brush and painted some areas with it. Allmost every scrapper has probabely tons of scrap paper we can`t afford to throw away in case of later use. Well.... i have lots!!! and now i got to use some lol. I glued on some strips of scrap paper along with some corrugated cardboard, a doily and one vintage ephemera card. Oh i allmost forgot, lol. I also sprinkled some white and black acrylic paint blended with water to make it thinner and easier to apply.

When all the groundwork was finished i started embellishing the whole thing. Chipboard pieces from Blue Fern Studios off course. Shabby Brick bits and Township collage.

Other supplies used:

Clear glass beads art engredients from Prima
A mix of dark blue, gold and copper microbeads
Wood clock piece, Flowers,and vintage trinkets, all from Prima
From my stash: Lace, organza flower, a tag, wood star, thread and a tag.
Bling from Prima and Staz

Some more closeups following.

It took me some time since i actually have no idea what i`m doing, lol. That`s how it is when i overthink things. Anyone suffering from the same problem, huh? I have turned to Anna Rogalska`s creations for inspiration. Love her work.

Well, i hope you are still hanging on, lol. It got to be a long post. Not so often i do that. Hopefully it made some sense to you. If not, don`t hesitate to ask. I will try and answer as best as i can.

Now i only have to wish you a great weekend.
