Blue Fern Studios-August Inspirations

Hello Blue Fern Studios Fans!  
Here's my turn to share with you two new layouts and a video tutorial. This month, I had so much fun with the gorgeous Wanderlust paper collection. 

"Merveilleux"


For this layout, I used the Wanderlust "Petites" paper as background. I put a coat of clear gesso on it and I added texture by applying modeling paste through a stencil. Then, I applied yellow inks and I stamped many details with BFS stamps and brown ink.


I left my chipboards (BFS Whimsy Flourishes and Natural Frame) raw but I put a little bit of white gesso dilued with water on them.


I also left my title raw and I add beads around the flowers to add texture.



I did a video tutorial of this layout, you can watch it here:

"Magnifique"


For this layout, I used Wanderlust 'Ocean Voyage' paper. I wanted to do a beachy layout. First, I did a textured background with modeling paste, stencil, aqua and mint inks, stamps and brown ink.


I glued a piece of net on my background with medium gel. I embossed my BFS chipboards Trailing Scrolls with BFS Imagine ink Seafoam embossing powder and the BFS Swallow Border with BFS Imagine Ink Sea Mist embossing powder. Then,  I aged them with brown paste. 


I embossed my title 'Magnifique' (BFS French Adjectives 1 chipboards) with BFS Imagine Ink Black Sand to make it stand out.


I add beads and shells to complete the beachy look.
