Vintage Chic featuring Blue Fern Studios Paper Line and Chipboard

Oh these Blue Fern Garden papers are truly lovely with those pretty images on each paper.  The soft pinks and browns inspired me to create something vintage with the Blue Fern Studios ("BFS")Romantic Page Dangles and Royal Page Bauble chipboard pieces.  These dangles are my new favorites from BFS, they’re so original, versatile, and there is nothing else like them on the chipboard market. Both the dangle and the bauble were treated with some white paint, clear gesso, various colors of brown/copper mist, black and white marker pens, and some very small and thin metal charms to add some vintage flair. The strand of pearls on the bauble were coated with a heavy gel medium, a brown, dark brown, and copper colored mist, and a dab of white paint.

Here's another layout using a Tinci Design sketch.  Lots of layers and goodies on this page which include various Blue Fern Studio chipboard pieces, and fussy cutting from the Blue Fern Garden paper collection. Visit the Blue Fern Studios Blog here to find out the various chipboard pieces used and some techniques also.

Thank you for stopping by.
