"Forever" Layout - Video Tutorial - Blue Fern Studios

Hello everyone and happy Valentine's Day!  Today I want to share my first layout for February for Blue Fern Studios along with a video tutorial.


My first layout for February features the Remnants Collection.  I am very inspired by the whole collection so I decided to make another video tutorial for this layout.  You can see the video tutorial below.

Blue Fern Studios vintage wedding mixed media layout

I chose the Callaway paper for my background.  The Remnants Printed Chipboard pieces with a thin coat of gesso under my picture added just the right amount of dimension.  The circular chipboard pieces around the picture are from the Floral Circles Chipboard and the thin circle frame right behind the picture is from the Tattered Butterfly Chipboard.  I also used the word "Forever" from the Families are Forever Chipboard for the title.

Each piece of chipboard on my layout was first painted with two layers of gesso.  Then I double embossed the chipboard pieces with Pearl Embossing Powder.  Before the embossing powder dried, I sprinkled some White Gold Glitter on the wet embossing powder to add some shimmer.

All of my flowers in my layout have some gesso on the tips, and they were lightly sprinkled with Red Wine Glitter while it was still wet.  

To the right of the picture, I used a rose from the Happy Roses set, and the rose to the left of the picture is from the Spring Florals set.  The other three flowers on my layout with the pearls in the center are from the Remnants Florals set.

My picture is mounted on a torn piece of the Mini Remnants Paper.  To add the final touches,  I used a very small amount of Purple Haze Seedlings in various areas around my picture and flowers.

I hope my video tutorial will provide you with some inspiration for your next layout!  Don't forget that I would love to answer any questions you may have. :-)
