My first Blue Fern Studios layout for March is called Love and uses the Courtship Lane collection. Here it is.
For this layout, I used two paper as my background: Town Gossip and Concert Hall. I altered them with modeling paste and a stencil, and I added color with watercolor. I also used a card from the Calling Cards paper in my paper cluster.
My main chipboard piece is the Bordeaux Layered frame which come in two parts. The bottom one, I painted with white gesso and sprayed mists over it, to match the color in the background paper. For the swirly top part, I covered it with white gesso. I chose to leave it white because I thought it was contrasting over the pink chipboard.
While I was looking in my box of smaller chipboards, I found a little piece (you can see it in the picture above, just below my frame) that came from a flourish from the Leafy Page Accents. I painted it with white gesso also, to match the frame. I thought it filled the gap between my flower and my frame perfectly. I never throw away even the tiniest pieces: you never know when they can come handy.
My title piece, from the Adore, Love, Cherish set is also painted plain white.
Thanks for looking.
