The Scrapbook Store - Step by Step Tutorial - Blue Fern Studios Tranquility LO

Hi everyone,  today I am sharing my step by step layout tutorial created for The Scrapbook Store using the beautiful Blue Fern Studios‘Tranquility’ Collection and inspired by the Blue Fern Studios June Sketch Challenge.  

Why not pop in to the store to see the full range of papers from this beautiful collection and while you’re there check out all other stunning Blue Fern goodies, a few if which I have used here on my layout.

You will find all the materials used to create this layout at The Scrapbook Store along with a couple of other items from your stash.

Love Life
I have created a mirror image of the sketch challenge for my layout.

Step by step instructions

Mix a small amount of the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Bonjour Butter mica powder from the Tres Chic Magicals Set with a palette knife into some Golden Soft Gel Medium to create a pale yellow paste (it’s better to add a small amount and then add more if you need to adjust the colour)

Using the Dusty Attic Lace Stencil apply the pale yellow medium to the Blue Fern Tranquility 'Contentment’ pp as shown in photo.  Dry off.

Randomly stamp over the masked area with the Kaisercraft Laugh Texture Stamp or a background stamp of your choice in Ranger Cornflower Blue Archival ink, then flick over with White Kaiser Mist.

Fussy cut the floral sections as shown in photo from the Blue Fern Tranquility ‘Calm’ pp.  Fussy cut the little bird from the Blue Fern Tranquility ‘Patience’ pp.

Recycle the packaging from the Blue Fern Chunky Words chipboard pack by tearing into 2 pieces on a diagonal, then stamp with the Stampendous Cosmos Spray in Cornflower Blue ink.  Ink around the edges of the torn sections.  Mix a little of the Bonjour Butter Magicals with water on a craft mat and paint the centres of the flowers with a brush.

Stamp the key image in Cornflower Blue Ranger Archival Ink from the Blue Fern Key to my Heart Stamp Set on the left over piece of the ‘Calm’ paper, then cut around the stamped image.

Diecut two of the Memory Box Leafy Branch die from American Crafts Peapod Cardstock.

Apply Cobalt Viva Inka Gold paste with fingertip to the Prima Shabby Chic Baroque Frame to make the scrolls stand out.

Cut the Green Tara Jute Lattice Trim down the middle, then trim off the top section to create a lacy fringe as shown in the photo.

Coat the Blue Fern Love Life chipboard words from the Chunky Words Pack with Ranger Buttercup Liquid Pearls by applying with your fingertip.

Using the photo as a guide, adhere a section of scalloped lace across the bottom of your layout.  Adhere the section of jute trim over the top of the lace.

Cut your photo down to size and adhere to the back of the resin frame.

Using foam tape, layer the fussy cut, diecut, stamped sections and flowers around your photo to create depth.

Adhere the chipboard title near the bottom of your layout as shown in the photo.
