My March Shares For Blue Fern Studios

Hi, today I have my March projects for Blue Fern Studios. These are featuring the newest Blue Fern Studios paper collections Serendipity and Courtship Lane. They are both SO gorgeous

My first layout is made using this months Sketch featuring the Courtship Lane Collection

Here is the March sketch

I started this layout by cutting strips of the paper to place on my background, next I mixed the Grape glitter and purple micro beads with gel medium and added this mix through a stencil.  I coloured the Circle Groups with the Oatmeal embossing powder.  I glued this to my page and added glitter, micro beads and glass beads into the circle holes. 

I added some random stamping with the Halftone and Essential Textures  stamps.
I coloured the Dare To Dream chipboard piece with three embossing powders (Oatmeal,  Mystic Plum and  Iris) to give and ombre look to it.  

I embellished this layout with flowers,  lace,  twine,  resin and gems

Chipboard: Circle Groups,  Dare To Dream
Embossing Powder: Oatmeal,  Mystic Plum,  Iris

My Second layout is using the Serendipity Collection

 I prepared my base paper (Anticipation) with clear gesso before I used modeling paste for texture.  While the paste was still wet I applied the embossing powders Seven Seas and Ginger to add colour to the paste.  

Next I added colour with sprays in blue, teal and beige tones.  To finish off my background I added brown distress ink through a flourish stencil and added random stamping with stamps Halftone and Forever

I cut the Blue Fern Frame to size and coloured the two larger pieces with the embossing powders in Seven Seas, Ginger,  Breeze and Sea Mist. For the two smaller pieces of the frame that were left over and my title Peace I coated them with white gesso and added colour with brown distress ink. 
To embellish the layout I used flowers,  buttons,  metal flowers,  glass pebbles and ribbon.

 And finally today I have two cards I made with the Courtship Lane Collection Papers, and two of my favourite chipboard pieces that came with the Serendipity Collection.
Sometimes I think the chipboard pieces are too stunning to be hidden amongst a layout and that they need to be featured (in this case on a card).

For this card I used the Chipboard Piece Gazebo, which I coloured with the Embossing Powders Snow and  Ginger. The image on the Courtship Lane paper Lovers Lane fit perfectly inside the Gazebo.

On my second card I made the Couture chipboard piece as the feature. I coloured this with the Embossing powders Snow,  Cotton Candy,  Fuchsia, Lilac and Mystic Plum
