Art Journal Page using Blue Fern Studios Chipboard




It’s been so long since I created something, and I must confess my hands were a little shaky too since I’ve been away from scrapping for what seems like an eternity.  This art journal page(s) features two of the new Blue Fern Studios chipboard.  The pretty, small intricately designed Blue Fern Flourish was torn into several pieces to create a partial frame around the photo and glitter and liquid pearls dress it up for even more glamor;  the Vintage Lock (four locks come in one package) was dressed up in some Tim Holtz tissue tape, inked around the edges and in the small intricate cut design work.  The simple background work was created with a stamp, mask, gel medium, tissue paper with fibers and two mist colors.

Here are the Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces in their packages.  Aren’t they pretty?

  17. Ha ha you shakey?! naaaww ... you were born talented and that's how it stays no matter how long you take a break from scrapping. Adore and admire all of your work my friend and this one is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. You have a marvellous sense of colour, design and an absolutely mindboggling creativity. Yup admitting to total envy and jealousy at how anyone can create such beauty, you are my muse!! mwah mwah mwah!
