Blue Fern Studios June Sketch Challenge

How did it get to be June already? I don't know what June is like in your neck of the woods, but around here it is crazy busy. School is wrapping up, we have a preschool graduation, end of the year gymnastics class, baseball is wrapping up, and we're going to deliver a litter of puppies in our home for PADS (the assistance dog organization I work for) before the mom and litter moves on to their caretaker.

The beginning of June also brings with it another fabulous sketch challenge from Blue Fern Studios. This month I'm playing with the new Ombre Dreams collection from Blue Fern - I love the soft, watercolour backgrounds, and the way many of the designs used on BFS chipboard are featured in the backgrounds, as well.

This picture of my youngest is washed out by the sun shining behind him, but it is too cute not to use, so a softer background paper was ideal to avoid over-powering the photo.

Here is this month's sketch:

Isn't it lovely? As usual, you can interpret the sketch however you like as long as you use Blue Fern Studios chipboard.

The Spring Trinkets piece was too lovely to be concealed beneath the title strip cut from the Dream Cards paper, so after adding colour I cut the piece in two and mounted the title on foam dots.

Page Dangles don't necessarily need to dangle - this partial piece of one of the Jeweled Page Dangles makes a great horizon line beneath my angled photo mat. I built on the watercolor background by adding some blue mists.

The Memory Frames got the same treatment as the other chippies.

I hope you'll play along with us this month for your chance to win some Blue Fern goodies!
