Happy Friday, scrappy friends! Today, I'm sharing my latest layout for the CSI Design Team. At CSI today, we are introducing a lovely new challenge. The colors play off of each other beautifully, and how perfect they are for a late spring or early summer design.
I am entering this layout in the May Challenge at Blue Fern Studio Blog. Their products are amazing! The papers are lovely and can be used in a variety of styles: formal, casual, romantic, masculine, feminine, youth, babies, vintage and shabby chic. If you have a photo to scrapbook, Blue Fern Studios is a perfect choice for products!
You can see the heat embossing I did using the Imagine Ink Embossing Powder, a chipboard frame and title. If the powder is not overheated, it gives a lovely texture.
Here, you can see some of the texture work in the background, as well as 3-D work and painting around the edges of the layered papers.
How lovely this little branch with birds is right outside this window.
|Behind the window I placed a bit of a transparancey that I colored with Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Ink and a blending tool.
Texture....one of my favorite artistic elements!
The journaling reads, "Hugs...a perfect example of getting out of it what you put into it."
Until next time, my friends!
