A Joyful Heart- Blue Fern Studios November Sketch

Another month and here we are in November.
I'm excited to share the new sketch for Blue Fern Studios for you to play with.

I created a beach layout using a picture I took on my recent trip. I used one of the papers from the Montage collection from Blue Fern Studios.

I framed the photo with the chipboard Collage Frame which I covered with embossing powder. I also used the wave shaped chipboard from the "By the sea" set.

I created a stencilled palm pattern in the background using a Scrap Fx stencil and some Light Molding paste. Then I edged them with Dry Sand chalk edger from Prima.

Papers: Blue Fern Studios Montage
Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios
Flowers: Prima
Color Bloom: Soft Teal
Palm Stencil: Scrap FX
Ranger Alcohol inks
Prima chalk edger ink: Dry Sand
Stampendous embossing powder
White gesso
Light Molding Paste

Now for something new and exciting. Check out the brand new collection from Blue Fern Studios called Sanctuary and its coming out soon!!

Hope You get to play with us this month!!
Have a wonderful day!

On Top of the World- Prima Trends- Video Tutorial

Its my turn on the Prima Blog today and its all about TRENDS. What's in? what's hot right now?
Come and check out the Prima blog for some designer inspiration and check out my favourite trend below along with a video tutorial!!

One of my favorites mixed media techniques are drips & splatters. So today, I'm showcasing this fun trend with a step by step video tutorial. Watch as I show you 4 different of ways of creating drips and splatters on your projects. Enjoy!

This is a picture of me admiring the Grand Canyon in Arizona. When I first saw The Grand Canyon, I was in awe at its grandeur. It was so majestic I just couldn't believe my eyes. I tried to create a layout that will partially transport you there, so you can see its beauty. Truthfully, pictures don't do it justice and in this case you have to see it to believe it.

The title "I'm on top of the world" comes from a favourite song by Imagine Dragons. My son and I really like it and I just felt it fit the theme of this layout perfectly. When you are looking down into the canyon, you really feel as if you're on top of the world.
