I'm sharing today my second layout for Blue Fern Studios.
My second layout features the Contentment paper from the Tranquility collection. When I got the collection, I wanted to create something special with this paper. It is just gorgeous. I decided on a layout about me, since I rarely use a picture of me.
For the background, I wanted to match what was already in the paper and that reminded me of sand or some rough texture. I used some stone effect medium with a stencil or simply applying it with a palet knife, and while it was still wet, I sprinkled some Imagine Ink Seven Seas and Honey embossing powders and heated it. I LOVE the result.
I did the same thing with my chipboards (the Crackle Bits). Look at this texture!
My title piece comes from the Serenity, Cam, Hushed set.
To mat my photo, I used the Jubilation and the Calling Cards papers, also from the Tranquility collection.
To embellish, I used two large flowers and some pale yellow lilies from the Tranquil Roses and Lilies set.
To add a bit of interest to my background, I partially stamped using the Serendipity Medley and the Making Plans stamps with blue ink, and the Postal Textures stamps with grey ink.
