September Share by Karine


I can't believe it's already the end of September! Were did the summer went? Oh my...

September 24th means it's my day here at Blue Fern Studios. So lets start with my first share.

A Walk on the Beach

You have probably seen this layout already, as I presented it September 1st for the moodboard reveal.

I started out with the Contemplation paper from the Serendipity collection.

All around my picture, I used some cards from the Calling Cards, along with some scrap pieces from the Fascination and Anticipation papers, also part of the Serendipity collection.

To add some interest to my background, I used the Brocade Texture and the Arcadia Textures stamps and embossed the patterns with snow Imagine Ink embossing powder. You can see some of the texture created on the picture above, over the flowers.

To embellish, I used some Seaside Lilies, Seaside Roses and Tranquil Roses and Lilies.

Lastly, my chipboard pieces, the Mesh Bits and my title (A Walk on the Beach) are covered with sandy paste and dry brushed with white gesso.


My second layout uses the Stillness paper from the Tranquility collection.

On my background, i used the Serendipity Medley and Essential Textures stamps.

I decided to cut apart the Dresden Corsage and to emboss the flowers I created with some Garnet Imagine Ink embossing powder. 

To go with the flowers, I also used the Spring Branch that I cut in pieces and embossed with Fern Imagine Ink embossing powder. To add some interest, I used a sponge to add some white gesso while the powder was still hot.

I used some flowers from the Attic Charm Daisies set and some from the Tranquil Blooms set.

Finally, my title piece is part of the Serendipity Words 2 set. I coloured it with ink.


Finally, my last layout is called Delightful. I started with one of my all time favorites collection: Ombré Dreams. The background paper here is called Ginger's Dream.

I used the Forever and Serendipity Medley stamps to stamp on my background.

I cut the Turkish panel and embossed the pieces with Imagine Ink snow embossing powder.

Over that, I used the Blooming Flourish that I cut and embossed with Sea Mist Imagine Ink embossing powder. 

My title piece, part of The Optimist Word Set, is embossed with Auburn Imagine Ink embossing powder.

I hope it inspires you.
Have a nice day.

September inspiration by Pascale

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Blue Fern Studios blog with three new projects. The first one featured the Tranquility collection: it was perfect for this photo of Marilyn Monroe.

I started to cover the Hushed paper with a thin coat of clear gesso; Then I added a design with a stencil and two pastes: black heavy gesso and platinum crackle paste.

When dry, I added more texture with the Arcadia Texture stamp and the Magenta embossing powder.

I just painted the Chelsea Vines with black gesso.

I embossed the Corner Flourishes with Pearl embossing powder.

Then I glued all the embellishments (flowers, chipboard and lace) with a 3D gel.

The second layout feature the Timeless collection which is perfect for this photo I've taken in the park of the castle of Chaumont-sur-Loire (Loire Valley, France). It's a sculpture from Giuseppe Penone: “Trattenere 8 anni di crescita (Continuerà a crescere tranne che in quel punto), 2004-2012”.)

As usual, I primed the Abode paper I chose as background with clear gesso. Then I added a design with a stencil and platinum crackle paste. I sprinkled Foll's Gold and Pyrite glitters while the paste was still wet.

I splattered watered gesso and let dry. Then I continued some splattering with gold and rust mica powders mixed with water and gel medium as well as gold paint.

In the meantime, I painted the Roman Clock with a gold acrylic paint. When dry, I added a coat of clear crackle paste and let dry naturally. I added some rust mica powder to darken the crackle as well as some pale silver mica powder to lighten the clock face.

First I embossed the Stillness title with the mushroom embossing powder. While the powder was still hot I sprinkled some pearl embossing powder as well.

I primed the Arching Leaves with white gesso, then I painted it with a rust mica powder. Then I added a coated of clear crackle paste.

When all the embellishments were glued, I added some micro beads.

I chose to work with the Tranquility collection again for my third layout.

I primed the background with clear gesso. Then I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste: I covered randomly the stencil with two chalk inks before applying the crackle paste through it.

While the crackle paste was still wet I sprinkled some Pyrite and Blue Ice glitters.

I sprayed all the chipboards with two inks: a brown and a teal and dried them. Then I added the same chalk inks I used previously with the stencil, sprayed some water.

I kept the Floral Garden Bits like this and I covered the Layering Stems with Glossy Accent.

I die-cut some leaves in the Jubilation paper and I colored the flowers lightly with a beige watercolor.
