Hello friends, we are officially in the month of May!!!
I'm sooo excited because we are headed for a family holiday in Perth in just 6 days. Looking forward to spending time with our friends there, lots of wine and dine, fun on a farm for the kids and of course, LOTS of pictures for scrapping!
As always, first day of month is Blue Fern Studios sketch time. Michelle Singh has outdone herself again with this beautiful sketch.
And this is my take on it, using the Signature paper from Blue Fern Garden:
Those gears and bits are from BFS. I've coated them with layers of Texturez from Shimmerz. For the flowers, I dabbed the edges with my latest favourite gold paint from 13@rts. For this layout, I've challenged myself not to go spraying everywhere but do a really subtle background using just Distress Stains. Unfortunately I caved in towards the end and used one of Ayeeda's mists (in Navy Blue) from 13@rts as well and made little splatters everywhere. Well, absolutely love the punch it added!
The Circle Group Panel chipboard. Perfect for background and layering. After painting them over with distress inks, I've plastered Shimmerz Texturez in Patina and Tidy Widy all over, and added some glass beads on top of little smears of Spun Sugar. You can also see the stitched circle stamps from Prima. I had looked for them everywhere but couldn't find them. Only to flip through a stack of stitched SQUARE stamps and see them. Note to self; perseverance pays off and never judge a stack of stamps by the first piece. Or maybe even the next ten pieces :p
A chippie tag, also from BFS. This was brushed with gesso then stamped in grey and black.
Well, that's all I have for now. Thanks for dropping by today!
