The Book Of Gratitude #1- Blue Fern Studios DT




This month I created two Blue Fern Studio projects that are very near and dear to my heart. I created them for two very special people in my life. Both these people asked me to create Gratitude Journals for them and I thought it would be great to include some Blue Fern Studio Chipboard on the front cover.

Here is the first journal I created. Come back in a few days to see the other one.


I bought this hard cover journal at the dollar store. Then, using some of the Blue Fern Garden papers I covered both front and back. To blend the paper seam to the cover's background I used light moulding paste and a brick stencil.


I used the tree from the Descanso Garden Set, a little bird and one of the Veranda cages. I have a tutorial below describing how I created the tree. The bird was painted in silks glaze paint and the bird cage in brown fluid chalk ink.





Here is a little tutorial on how I created the chipboard tree:







Materials:
Papers: Blue Fern Garden
Journal: Dollar Store
Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios
Flowers: Prima
Brick Stencil: The Crafters Workshop
Tim Holtz Distress inks
Ranger crackle accents gel


I've said this before but would like to say it again. I'm so very grateful to all of you coming to visit my blog!! 
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!!
