Hello my scrappy friends :) .....
It's been a bit quiet around my blog lately.....my sweet parents were here for a visit
and I wanted to spend every moment with them as we don't see each nearly as often as I would like. As a result I got a bit behind on my creations LOL.
Then along came a box full of Blue Fern Studios goodies and it kick-started my mojo!
I am head over heels in love with the the new paper collection 'Sanctuary'.
Beautiful rich colors, elegant vintage style patterns....love at first sight....
Words can't describe how much I love this paper....this one is called 'Meadows of Time'.
The colors are so gorgeous and I just played off of the vintage stamping and bits of old paper in the design. I started by applying gesso with a natural sea sponge to give it a really uneven texture and then added some mists in blue and brown.
Next I created some layers with some pieces of vintage papers from my stash and Blue Fern Garden paper collection. I added some 'Shabby Flakes' and a piece of the 'Winter Word Set' which I painted white and then sprinkled with white glitter.
I submitted this layout to the challenge blog called 'Vintage Cafe Card Challenge' for my Guest Designer spot this month. I won their past challenge called 'French Vintage' and they were very kind to feature me. The challenge this month is 'Waiting for a Miracle'.
Please go here for more details of the challenge. There are so many beautiful shabby designs on this blog, really talented designers....it's a real treat if this is a style you love (as much as I do).
Thanks for taking a look!
Back with more Blue Fern Studios projects soon....
Big hugs, Lisa xox
