Mixed Media Layout Inspiration by Keren Tamir

Keren here and its my turn again on the Blue Fern Studios blog. I have 3 Mixed Media Layouts for you today.

Hope they inspire you!!

"You Are My Happiness"

This is the first layout I created using the Ombré Dreams Ginger's Dream Paper as a background.

I used the Wild Flourish Frame to frame my photo. I altered it by adding texture over it using textured paste and a patterned Stencil. Then I sprayed it with two different Color Bloom Sprays: Sorbet, Vintage Coal and Lime Wedge

I added the same texture and colours to the background and then stamped some branches and birds using black archival ink.

Finally I added some matching flowers, a title using the word Happiness from the Good Vibes set  and Voila!! 


"You are perfect just as you are"

This is my second creation this month for Blue Fern Studios

I created a mixed media layout using the Ombre Dreams Chalotte's Dream paper as the background.

I wanted to hide the purple side of the paper as much as I could because I wanted to create a masculine layout. First I primed the purple side of the paper with clear gesso. Then, I created lots of texture in the background using a Stone Wall  stencil and some Textured paste. Finally, I sprayed it with two  Color Bloom Sprays: Cobalt and Precious Stone. I let the spray drip down the page to cover as much of the purple as possible.

I cut the Ups and Down panel Blue Fern Studio Chipboard. I cut it unevenly to create movement on the page. Then I embossed it with white and black embossing powder. Finally I inked the edges with black coal fluid chalk ink.

I built some layers over the chipboard panel and added some matching flowers and embellishments around the photo.

Finally I added a title in the corner using the Perfect chipboard word from the Chunky Word Set. I also embossed it with black embossing powder.
I also added some journaling along the side of the page using both sticker words and my own writing.


"I Love You"

This was my layout created for the new sketch challenge this month. The August's sketch was amazing as always.
We hope you get to play with us!!!

I love it when my kids pose together for me and on that rare occasion I snap the camera to get this cute picture of them. I used it as the centre of my layout.

I used the Blue Fern Studios Ombre Dreams Collection, Flutterbird chipboard dangles, a small camera from the picture perfect chipboard set and the word Love from the good vibes chipboard set.

Well that's all for today!!
Hope you enjoyed my creations

Have a wonderful day!!

August projects with Blue Fern Garden

Hi Maja here today. I have two projects to show you, one layout and one card made with the Blue Fern Garden papers and BFS chipboard pieces. First up is the layout.

For this layout I used light modelling paste togehter with a stencil. I like this light paste because you can still see the pattern in the paper. Looks like embossing. My chipboard pieces I´ve painted with gesso and then used a stamp on them with some chalk.

Blue Fern products used:
papers: Blue Fern Garden - Boudoir and Picnic
chipboard: Lace Rounds and Bohemian Flowers

For my card I have used the new chipboerd piece " Birds ona wire".  I love birds and the color blue =) 

I have used 2 differerent colors of chalk on my chipboard and some pearls.

Blue Fern products used:
papers: Blue Fern Garden -Parlour
Chipborad: Birds on a wire 

Thanks for stopping by =)

Two off-the-page projects and a layout by Marie-Josee

Hello all!

I hope you are having a great summer so far. Here, it's been wonderful. I spent most of my time outside, but still managed to create a few projects for Blue Fern Studios. Here they are! :)

Angel canvas

To create this canvas, I used a chipboard from the Turkish Bits set. I glued it to my canvas, applied gesso on top with a sponge and added color with Silks Acrylic Glazes and three different colors of spray.

Once dry, I stamped words with black ink on top of my chipboard.

I also cut circles out of the Shannon's Dream paper from the Ombre Dreams collection and colored each circle with Silks Acrylic Glazes. You can still see the pattern, because the Silks are translucent.


I used my Silhouette Portrait to create this tiny birdhouse. I bought a file from the Silhouette Online Store and used the Parlour paper from the Blue Fern Garden collection as a base.

Then, I tore pieces of the Charlotte's Dream paper from the Ombre Dreams collection to add texture to the roof.

I put the house on a chipboard from the Lace Rounds set and added gesso here and there. I then sprayed the whole thing with brown and teal mists.

August sketch

And here's my take at the August sketch, which was featured on the blog on August 1st. I used the Techno Rings, the word "Sunshine" from The Optimist Word Set and various papers from the Ombre Dreams collection.
