Happy- Blue Fern Studios- Sanctuary Collection

Today I'm featuring one of the last two Blue Fern Studio layouts for 2014. It has been a great year and I'm looking forward to designing for them for another year!!
For the background, I used the new Sanctuary collection. This is the "Meadows of Time" paper and it fit perfectly with my beach theme.

I used the seaside frame which I painted in two tones of distress paint. This is another photo of my daughter taken on the beautiful beaches of Grenada during our recent trip.

As a title, I used the word Happy from the set: happy, laughter, smile. I covered in in old rose distress paint and then edged it with pastel peach and branch bark fluid chalk edgers. 
The flowers of course are Prima.

Papers: Blue Fern Studios Sanctuary
Chipboard: Blue Fern studios
Flowers: Prima
cheese cloth
TCW sea bubbles 12x12 stencil
Ranger Distress paint dabbers: Copper, Gold, old rose
Fluid chalk edger peach pastel and branch bark
Prima's Finnabair Art Extravaganza platinum texture crackle paste

Follow your own path- Mixed Media Canvas- Flying Unicorn December KOTM

Here is another project I created for the Flying Unicorn Kit of the month.

The 12x12 Canvas comes in the Mixed Media kit add-on and as I was creating it, I knew I was going to send it overseas to a good long time scrappy friend.

I made this canvas whimsical using one of the wooden Julie Nutting dolls and many different Prima products like flowers, resins, leaves and an canvas alphabet.

The background texture was created with one of the 13 Arts 6x6 stencils. It created a grass like texture which I then inked in green fluid chalk edger.

12x12 Canvas
Wooden doll: Prima Julie Nutting
Flowers and leaves: Prima
Resin: Prima
Chipboard: Creative Expressions
Stencil: 13 Arts
Light Molding paste
Alpha: Prima
Prima Fluid chalk ink: summer field, turquoise stone
Molotow markers

Thank you so much for coming to visit
have a wonderful day!
