I am so excited to share the new Blue Fern Studios Montage papers with you this month along with some of the new chipboard pieces. Let's look at what I have for you today.
A Joyful Heart
For this 8 1/2 x 11 layout, I traced one of the Graduated Squares chipboard pieces onto the Montage Bouquet paper and cut it out to use as a third square on the layout.
Also, when trimming this gorgeous 12x12 piece of Montage Fairyland paper down to 8 1/2 x 11, I unfortunately had to cut off two of the beautiful edges. But it was easily solved. I stitched the bottom piece back onto the layout. I chose to leave the right edge bare but I could have easily stitched that on also. So don't ever hesitate to cut down these papers for smaller layouts.
To treat the chipboard pieces, I painted them all in black gesso. Easy but I love the "pop" that black provides to a creation.
What a Day
For this 8 1/2 x 11 layout, I used several new pieces of Blue Fern Studios chipboard—What a Day, Printer's Bits, and Arrow Words. I just love all of these pieces. The gorgeous papers I used are Montage Now and Then and Calling Cards.
Again, I covered most of the chipboard pieces in black gesso except the Printer's Bits (the number 20). I used gelatos to color the numbers and then covered each one in Glossy Accents.
