Blue Fern Studios: January Sketch Challenge

Happy New Year, everyone!

I'm so excited to share my FIRST projects as a design team member for Blue Fern Studios! My layout is based on the BFS January sketch, designed by the amazing Michele Singh. 

Here is my take on the sketch:

For this layout, I used Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Winter Dangles and The Optimist Word Set (Delightful). I also used Maja papers from the Vintage Frost collection, Zva flourishes, and Prima flowers from various collections. 

Here are a couple of closeups to show you how I treated the chipboard:

For these Winter Dangles, first, I primed them with Gesso, then used purple chalk ink on the edges of the heart, stars, and the bows. Once dry, I painted a heavy coat of Glimmer Glam in Chandelier. I added white glitter to the snowflake charm. 

For the "Delightful" chippie, I primed with gesso, then lightly pressed purple chalk ink on it to get a faded/uneven effect. 

Thanks for looking!

Be sure to check out the Blue Fern Studios blog and check out what the other designers have done with this beautiful sketch! I hope you get to play along with us this month! there is an awesome prize up for grabs!
