"Wonderful" - Winter Layout for Blue Fern Studios

Welcome back to my blog today!  I decided to go with a cold, winter theme for my newest layout titled "Wonderful" for the Blue Fern Studios Design Team.

Wonderful Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas by Jessica McFall

The Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas Collection was perfect for this winter theme so I chose Auld Lang Syne as my background paper.


After adding clear gesso to my paper, I used some matte gel medium to attach various cards from the Holiday Cards paper and Greeting Cards paper.  I also used some of these cards as matting for my picture.  After adding texture with a stencil and texture paste, I used a little bit of taupe mist around my stenciled area.  After I added all of my elements to my layout, I decided I wanted more color over the taupe mist.  I chose another stencil with matte gel medium then sprinkled some Mauve Seedlings over the matte gel.  I was very glad I did.  


I embossed the Ornate Medallions Chipboard with Ivory Embossing Powder, and while it was still hot, I sprinkled some White Gold Glitter on top to add a bit of sparkle.  To add more dimension to the page, I used some of the Vintage Christmas Printed Chipboard.  I LOVE how it can be used as a subtle accent to layouts or can be used as a focal point on a layout!  They are really versatile and fit the collections well.


The blue and white flowers are part of the Christmas Blooms set.  On the tips of each flower I added Blue Ice Glitter to make it have a frosty look.


The pink flowers on the page are part of the Remnants Blossoms set.  They also have some Blue Ice Glitter on the petal tips.


To help "anchor" the photo and the title, I added pieces of the Leafy Page Accents Chipboard.  I cut one of the chipboard pieces in half and embossed it with Green Ivory Embossing Powder.


I cut the word "Wonderful" from one of the Vintage Christmas Printed Chipboard pieces for the title of my layout.  I like how it looks like it is resting on the pink Remnants Blossoms flower.

Thank you for taking a look at my layout today and stay warm!

"Joy" Layout - Video Tutorial - Blue Fern Studios Remnants Collection

Hello everyone!  I am excited to share with you my second layout for the Blue Fern Studios Design Team.  It is titled "Joy", and I included a video tutorial found at the end of this post.


Joy Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout Video Tutorial Blue Fern Studios Remnants Jessica McFall

My background paper is Westfield from the Remnants Collection.  I used the ButterfliesTattered Newsprint, and the Crackle Textures Stamps to create my background.


To the left and right edges of my layout, I embossed the Floral Lattice Bits Chipboard with Ivory Embossing Powder then Pearl Embossing Powder and added Burgundy Seedlings.



I also put the word Happy from the Remnants Printed Chipboard to the right edge of my page.


For this layout, I used two sets of flowers.  The Homespun Blossoms and Heartland Blossoms work well together since they both have beautiful white flowers.  The matting under my picture was created by embossing pieces of the Mini Remnants Paper with the Rose Frame and Journaling Cards Stamps with Dark Chocolate Embossing Powder.



To the right of the picture, pieces of the Ever After Frame Set were embossed with Ivory Embossing Powder.  The flowers have Russett Glitter added to the centers.


The title "Joy" comes from part of the Find Joy Chipboard and was embossed with Ivory Embossing Powder.



I randomly added some Meadow Seedlings in places around the page.



And here is my video tutorial that I promised.  I hope it gives you inspiration for starting your next project!




See you soon!

Remnants Collection "Cherish Life" Mixed Media Layout

Hello ladies and gentlemen!  I officially created my first layout this January for the Blue Fern Studios Design Team titled "Cherish Life".  I chose to use the Beaumont Paper from the new Remnants Collection for my background.

Cherish Life Scrapbook Mixed Media Layout Blue Fern Studios Remnants Jessica McFall

I cut one of the frames from the Ever After Frame Set in half, then used one of the halves on the left side of my page.  It was embossed with Night Sky Embossing Powder, and Red Wine Glitter was added in spots on the chipboard.  After that, I used the Penned Flourishes Stamp and embossed the image over it with Ivory Embossing Powder.


The flower on the left side of the page is from the Late Winter Lilies Flowers Set.  Using the Remnants Printed Chipboard, I decided to create the title for my layout - "Cherish Life".


My picture has been matted on parts of the Callaway Paper from the Remnants Collection.


Behind the picture, I added another frame from the Ever After Frame Set and embossed it with Green Ivory Embossing Powder.  Notice how the Meadow Seedlings add a nice touch to the chipboard.


To the left of the picture, I used a flower from the Remnants Blossoms, one from the Wanderlust Lilies set, and the rose at the bottom is from the Happy Roses set.



In the picture above, you get a nice closeup of the Branch Set Chipboard.



More Meadow Seedlings and Remnants Printed Chipboard to the right of the picture balances the layout very well.


The You Make Me Smile Chipboard in the center of the page was first embossed with Night Sky Embossing Powder, then I added Ivory Embossing Powder in spots over the Night Sky.
