My Happy Life- Blue Fern Studios

This is my last project this month for Blue Fern Studios.

I used the "Invitation" paper from the new Montage collection to design this layout. I loved the central theme of the background and therefore, I tried to create vertical movement on the page.

After designing the colourful background using Color Bloom sprays and a new Prima stencil, I framed my photo in the Blue Fern Studios Ornate chipboard frame. I embossed it in white Stampendous embossing powder. You can see the texture of the frame below.

I added Prima flowers and leaves under the frame to embellish the page. I tried to maintain the central/vertical theme in the layout.

Finally I used a few different chipboard words for the title. I used a word from the valentine word set and a couple of words from the chunky word set (the word life, was shortened from the word lifetime in the set). All the words were embossed to match the frame.

Papers: Blue Fern Studios Montage
Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios
Embossing powder: stampendous
Flowers and leaves: Prima
Stencil: prima
light moulding paste
Prima Color Bloom sprays: Cotton Candy, Gilded and Sunshine
Prima chalk edger: rusty keys

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.

Have a wonderful day!!
