Happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing two layouts on the Blue Fern Studios blog, and I thought I would share them here with you too. Now the fun thing about these layouts is that they are 8 1/2 x 11. Oh my, I have not scrapped that size in probably 10 years or more! One of my daughter's is a nanny for a precious 11 month old. Well, her mother asked me to make a layout for her 1st birthday, and we have decided to surprise her with a complete album! So, my daughter has been snapping photos, and I am scrapping away. These are the first two layouts for the 8 1/2 x 11 album. Let's look at them in detail.
Papers: Basic Grey Sultry and Kneehighs, Kaisercraft Basecoat Weathered
BFS Chipboard: Brigitte Butterfly Set (painted with gesso, Adirondack pool paint dabber, and Heidi Swapp mint green color shine)
Embellishments: Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Tiny Doily die; Elle's Studio Lil' Snippets Today; Petaloo daisy; Memory Box white pearls; Zva Creative pearl flourishes; Maya Road kraft dot envelope; Freckled Fawn wood word bubble; Prima Corine, Overture C, and Frost Frappe VI flowers; Prima flourish stencil with Golden extra heavy gel medium; misc. leaves; sewing machine
My next layout is a photo the family wanted me to scrap. They think this is the only layout they are getting. Oooh, I can't wait for them to have this album. Anyway, the baby's room is done in all of these colors. They love the bright colors. So, I went bright with this layout. It was a bit hard to photograph because of the white background. The close-up photos show the colors best.
The Blue Fern Studios chipboard I used was the Good Vibes set for the title "Cute Stuff," and the Organic Vine Corner which I cut in half to use on both sides of the picture.
For the Organic Vine Corner, I painted it with gesso and then spritzed with SEI Tumble Dye desert purple mist. I was able to get it darker in some areas so it gave it a very fun look.
