Magical – Blue Fern Studios February Sketch Challenge

Here is my layout for the Blue Fern Studio February Sketch challenge


The sketch had a valentines look to it so I used these pictures of my

daughter and  her boyfriend.


I made the background by first covering most of the page with gesso.

I distressed the edges with a distress tool, some tearing and an edge punch.  I then colored the background with gellatos and several colors of mist.  I used texture paste and a stencil, stamping, embossing,  washi tape, and some rub ons too.

Here is a close up of the texture


I colored the Blue Fern Chipboard (I love this stuff!) first with black chalk ink.

Then I painted over it with iridescent gel medium, and applied some random blotches of texture paste.  Finally I splashed on some watered down acrylic paint and sprinkled distress glitter over it all.  I think it gave it an interesting look.



I finished everything off with a floral cluster, some cheese cloth, a few resin pieces, a really cool looking big crystal brad and some pearls.
