Just because you make my life beautiful

Hello!

I made a canvas for the Lindy's stamp gang march color challenge and the More than words challenge blog.






I didn't have many time to create 2 different projects so i thought i combined them.

This is my take on both challenges:
For the More Than Words Challenge you have to use the word Beautiful and a butterfly on your page.

The products i've used from Lindy's Stamp Gang are:

The Golden Angel wings and the Geranium Coral Blush embossingpowders, and the Merci Beaucoup mint spray, I also used the fuzzy navel peach spray, which isn't in the moodboard but i do not have the Geranium Coral Blush in a spray.

Hi Everyone,

Today it's my turn to show you my projects for this month, 2 of them feature the new Chesterville collection, it's absolutely stunning!

For my first page

"All Natural"

 i used the Chesterville Hargrave paper, when i saw this one i knew i had to use it!


I mixed some white gesso with artsian powders and created a background for my photo.
Then i used the harlequin of the Texture 1 stamp and one of the vintage phrases
 and also a stencil i used with paint to give my background more texture.
 a few chrystals and string from my own stash.
The Chesterville collection comes with some beautiful grungy chipboard pieces, i used the Chesterville Collage which i cut in pieces to fit my photo right and an older set called All Natural, which matched my theme for this page perfectly.

I treated the Chesterville Collage with Oatmeal embossing powder, The All natural Set with Mushroom  and Sand and Sea embossing powder except for the butterfly (It's a girl embossing powder) and my title, on that one i used Vintage Gold embossing powder.
I also used a few Lilies from the Havest, Late Winter and Spring Lilies, thes are so gorgeous and can be used on everything!

---------------------------

Now for my second one

 "Two Hearts" 

i made a smaller canvas with Attic Charm papers and a picture from our wedding day in 2012.



 I used the Spring Posy papers as well as a few cards from the calling cards paper and strips of paper from the Sachet paper where i put some lace behind and between the layers to give it some depth.
I created the background with the Forever stamp and
i also used some It's a girl embossing powder and the essential texture stamp for different textures.
For my chipboard pieces i used the Floral clock and the Symphony border which i treated with snow embossing powder mixed with some glitters.
The Title Two Hearts from the Wedding Words Set i embossed with mushroom embossing powder but i found it was too dark so i used a little Gesso to tone it down a little.
i used some glitter, small flowers, chrystals and beads from my own stash.
For the flower clusters i used the Harvest Lilies.

And for the third one

"Sassy"

i also used the new Chesterville Collection.
For this page i used the Whitford paper and placed the Bretton paper (this one is so pretty with the small flowers) which i cut a bit smaller on top.
I cut the inside of the Whitford paper and used a piece of it behind my photo.
I made a lot of photo's of our little girl on our last vacation, i like them so much combined with these papers as you can probably see, because i used two already this month, lol.
 For the background i used modeling paste with a stencil which i colored with artisan powders and mica powders. I tucked in some Cheesecloth behind my photo.
I used the Manchester Frame which is part of this Chesterville Collection and the title Sassy from the Cute Sweet Sassy Set.
The Frame was embossed with the mushroom embossing powder and the title Sassy was treated first with crackle paste for some texture and then i used the vintage gold embossing powder.
 I used the  Late Winter Lilies and the Harvest Lilies.
 To give it al some more texture and depth i used some different sizes of art stones.
 I also used some small embesllishments and flowers from my own stash.

Dusty Attic Moodboard February

Goodmorning!

I liked the moodboard and the sketch on the Dusty Attic Blog so  much i had to give it a go.
This is the moodboard and sketch of this month:


And here's my take on it :

"Memories From The Heart"



I used the String Frames small, the word memories from word pack #17 and the Indian Arrow #2, Flutterbies #3 and mini Fleur de Lis
and embossed them with WoW embossing powders wodka sparkle, platinum and platinum sparkle.

 
Black Prills, pearls and some Prima marketing say it in chrystals from the new wild and free collection.


I also used Maya Design papers vintage romance, to be with you.


7 Dots Word Stickers


 Prima marketing flowers and embellishments.
I used Blue Fern Studios stamps for the background as well as mica powders and magicals and lace.




Thanks for watching!

January projects by Wendy Scholten

Hi everyone,

I'm so excited and thankful to be in this talented designteam for Blue Fern Studios and share my projects with you today!
My name is Wendy Scholten also known as MySweetCreativeLife and i'm 34 years old.
I am married to Peter for 5 years and we have a little girl, she is 3 years and is my biggest inspiration. I live in Kwintsheul, a small village in the Netherlands.
I work on a daycare for mentally challenged people for almost 14 years now.
I started scrapbooking about 10 years ago and love to try new products to see wat i can make with them. My style is romantic but i also like to use mixed media products.


You can find me here on social media:





I have 3 projects for you so let's start with the first one.



"Baby it's cold outside"



My first page is made with the gorgeous Vintage Christmas collection, i made this photo of our daughter on our last vacation and i loved it so much i knew i had to use this one.
The Christmas papers are so versatile, i decided to make a winter layout instead of a Christmas layout
(also because our daughter didn't want me to make a photo of her in her Christmas outfit, lol)





I used the Auld Lange Syne paper which i cut in half and switched the bottom and top so the flowers ended up in the middle and placed it on the backside of the Wonderland paper. I used lace to cover up the edges of the papers in the middle.

I used a stencil and moddeling paste with glitter to create texture for the background, when that was dry i used the forever stamp and some ink to stamp some images over the moddeling paste.
I  framed my photo with a piece of burlap and some cheesecloth underneath it.

The chipboard pieces were all treated with white gesso and then i used Snow and Silver Bells embossingpowders which i mixed together in different amounts.



For the Blooming curls is used more snow then silver bells and for the Winter Flakes the opposite. The title Baby it's cold outside was embossed with only silver bells and some ice paste and i cut it in pieces to fit my photo.



I used several collections of flowers, the Winter Lilies and Christmas Blooms. To finish it i used a few berries and embellishments from my own stash and put some glitter on some places.

Then for number two:



"Follow your Heart"


For my second page i used the beautiful Heartland papers, chipboard and flowers.
I used a stencil, some moddeling paste and the Forever stamp for my background


I used the backside of the Red Rose Ball paper and 3 of the calling cards of the Love Notes paper which i placed under my photo to give it some depth. I also fussy cut some of the flower bits from the Sweet on You paper and tucked them between my photo and the calling cards.



I treated my chipboard first with some white gesso and for the Follow Your Heart title i used Vintage Gold embossingpowder, for the Spirit of Heartland chipboard i used oatmeal embossingpowder.


The Heartland Flowers are gorgeous so i knew i had to use those on my layout and some of the courtship roses. To finish it i used a few embellishments of my own stash.

And the last one for this month, number three:



"You have stolen my Heart"




For my third layout i also used the Heartland papers, flowers and chipboard.
I used the backside of the Love Song Serenade Paper and used nothing more than a doily stencil and some moddeling paste for the background.





I really love lace so that's what i used for the background texture together with the Blooming Flourishes chipboard which i treated with white gesso and then used Sand and Sea Embossing powder.



The Heartland XOXO chipboard was treaten with It's a girl Embossig powder.



I cut a small piece of it to make a cluster at the bottom of my page with some lace and flowers.



I used the Heartland Colection flowers as well as the coutship roses and Christmas blooms.
And topped it off with some Glitter and some embellishments of my own stash.
