Blue Fern Studios - February challenge


I LOVE Blue Fern Studios!!

...and when I saw the Sketch for this month...







 I created this...







When I visited Scrap Elegance (when Kylie Obst came to Queensland to teach...and climb stairs!!) I saw that Tenisha had the beautiful Blue Fern Studios 'Ombre Dreams' paper range... when I saw Susan's dream with the blues and yellows I had to have it! I already had the BFS 'Olga's Balloon' chipboard which was altered with Stampendous and Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powders.
I trimmed a couple of strips of paper doily and adhered them across the paper, along with various ribbon, lace and trim. I mixed together a little Whipped Spackle and Gelato 'Buttercream'





and swiped this through a Heidi Swapp stencil. Applied some Finnabair 'Clear Gesso' and some white Gesso over the background. The Faber Castell 'Glass Bead Glitter Gel' was swiped through a Prima stencil... and dry! Well, almost dry (no patience!) a spritz of Tattered Angels 'Banana Pudding' and Dylusions 'White Linen' here and there... and also on the My2angels 'scallop felt frame' and some random acrylic pieces (and with some Adirondack alcohol inks)
The embellishing - the tickets are Pink Paislee 'Hope Chest'....there is Manor House Creations flowers and frame...Prima wood pieces...Maya Road 'star pins'....My2angels 'Sugar Beads in blue' and 'Circle rhinestone'...couple of white enamel charms from Sharon...a Martha Stewart ribbon bow...and a couple of yellow safety pins and dragonfly brads....finishing with a sprinkle of Stampin' Up! enamel dots!!
This photo of Katelyn in a Bevis family heirloom dress is one of my favourite (her Aunty also wore this dress!)
