The Scrapbook Store - Blue Fern Tranquility

Hi Everyone,

This month for The Scrapbook Store, I get to play with the beautiful new Blue Fern 'Tranquility' collection.  This range has a lovely vintage/shabby feel to it in neutrals and soft muted colours with a beautiful range of damask, floral and weathered pp's.

For my first DT layout I chose a couple of the cream and soft brown pp's from the collection to go with this gorgeous photo of my nephew's newborn baby.  

I tore and layered the papers with some corrugated cardstock. which I coated with Liquitex gesso and accented the pp's by spraying the background denim Kaisermist.

I mixed modeling paste with a spray of antique gold Kaisermist, and a touch of coffee Kaisermist which I stencilled over my background with the Tim Holtz Burlap stencil.  Once dry, I sponged over lightly with gesso to soften, then flicked over with Pearlex brilliant gold and white Kaisermist to highlight.

To create a frame for my photo I fussy cut one of the labels from the Calling Cards pp.  I also fussy cut the peaceful label for my title.  The greenery was fussy cut from the Patience pp and layered with some of the new Mini Lillies in white and Green Tara Gardenias.
