Today I wanted to share a layout of one of our vacation photos from a week ago. This is our oldest daughter (by a minute), and we were out on a dock at Harbour Town on Hilton Head Island. I used the June Blue Fern Studios sketch as well as the new Blue Fern Studios paper line called Ombre Dreams. Here is my 8 1/2 x 11 layout:
The two chipboard pieces are called Heart Borders and Techno Rings. To color the Heart Borders, I painted the border with gesso first. Then after that dried, I added Prima Color Bloom sunshine, iris, and peony mists. To color the Techno Rings chipboard, I again painted the piece with gesso first. Then I added some Prima Color Bloom peony mist. Once that dried I stamped some hearts onto the chipboard with 13arts Ayeeda Paint in matte raspberry.
