Hello Scrappy Friends! I'm back with my final post as "Fan of the Month" for Blue Fern Studios. There are two layouts for this post. The first one is called "Joy", and honors my son and his girlfriend.
One of my signature techniques is 3-D work. I start by cutting an image from the paper, then ink the sides of the paper to blend the colors onto the middle part of the paper so the white middle portion of the paper cannot be seen.

Now, for the second layout today, titled "Love". My husband is not in the photo because he is usually the photographer on holidays, but our two children are in it, as are my parents.
Next, comes the fussy cutting of the images I wanted to use, blending the sides makes them look as if the ink goes all the way through the paper. Last comes popping them up and gluing them in place.
Many times in my work, I add texture to the paper by using a stamp, embossing medium and powder, as you can see here.
