All Natural- Blue Fern Studios February sketch



February is here and it's time again to reveal the new sketch challenge at Blue Fern Studios


The February sketch is very versatile.
I've rotated it 90 degrees to fit my design.


This is a picture of my daughter watching the ducks by the pond. I really wanted to give this layout an earthy natural feel. I used flowers, feathers and nature themed chipboard to create this look.


The Blue Fern Chipboards I used are: All Natural set, Little Birds set, Bordeaux layered frame, Shabby brick bits and Twiggy branch.


I altered the frame by painting it with butterscotch coloured acrylic paint and then stamping it with brown archival ink. The bricks, bird and branch I simply inked in brown fluid chalk and the title I left raw.
