Pink and More Pink with Blue Fern Studios!

Okay, so most of you know that pink is my favorite color. For today's inspiration, I decided to go with a pink theme. I have an art journaling page and a card all done in pink for you today. Let's look at what I've created.

I love this quote"You can never have too much pink." So, I decided to use that on my art journal page for today. I first started with a lot of Blue Fern Garden paper scraps. I, of course, chose mostly the pink scraps. I then layered them on the page with other scraps of paper. Here is a photo of what the page looked like when I started and layered on the Blue Fern Garden scraps. Sorry for the dark photo.

And here is how the art journaling page turned out:

I used Blooming Flourish chipboard pieces and painted them with different colors of acrylic paint. I also added the chipboard to the page before adding paint splatters so that the chipboard pieces would also got some white and black splatters on them.

Blue Fern Studios products used:
Blue Fern Garden papers
Blooming Flourish chipboard

For this card, I decided to stick with the pink theme. I used the Blue Fern Garden Calling Cards paper. I started by using my Gelli Plate with acrylic paint to add some more color. Then I embossed the same piece of paper after it had dried. After that, I began layering the paper and embellishments to finish the card.

The chipboard piece I used is called Jeweled Trinkets. I covered it in pink acrylic paint. Then I added a layer of texture paint to the bow portion of the chipboard to set it off a bit.

This page is so beautiful! I have never tried this technique, but have seen similar outcomes. I want to get out my gelli plate now and try some things with layering!
