I am here today to share with you a layout I created using some gorgeous Blue Fern Studio Paper collection and chipboard for their October Sketch Challenge, you can find it here http://bluefernstudios.blogspot.com/2016/10/october-challenge.html.
So I have the absolute perfect picture for this layout, however, being that I just moved 2 months ago, I am still sorting thru photographs as when I packed up my scrap room I just packed the piles of stuff I had cluttered all over my space instead of sorting thru it like I should have....shame on me! So for now it's a premade layout, which I have actually never done.
For my layout, I used Blue Fern Studio Courtship Lane Collection, which is gorgeous by the way, if you have not yourself any, don't walk....run to the store or online store and purchase yours today, it's absolutely stunning and super duper worth it!
Once my goodies for the page were selected, I started my page as always by getting my distressed edges out of the way, which is a must for me. I love to use my Ingvild Bolme distressing tool for this. I then used my Repeat Tile Remnant stencil with some generic medium texture paste. in various spots on the page. At the top right and top right side as well as the lower left side I added some splashes of glimmer mist and luminart water color drippings as well as some white acrylic paint splatters, which I also added a few more places on the page.
Once I was satisfied with my splatterings, I started layering my papers and florals until I achieved the look I had in mind. I then got to work on my chipboard, which are also from Blue Fern Studios (Wonderful and Royal Border) I was sad to find that my Versamark pad was dry and I couldn't emboss my chipboard like I had planned .......however, I painted it with some copper and mustard yellow acrylic paints and touched the edges some silk iridescent ink in yellow, which gave a beautiful glow to the edges. I wanted them to blend in with the white washing I planned to do at the end so I used my fine tip white gel pen to lightly outline various edges of the chipboard. I actually oved the way it turned out, so it made up for my dried up versamark.
I finished off my layout by using a makeup brush meant for eye shadow to brush some distress ink around the edges of my stenciling and layered papers as well as the corners of my page. I also added a bit of ink to the white florals using the same brush. I also added some cheesecloth beneath the florals as well a hemp cord ribbon.
