Butterfly Kisses for Blue Fern Studios

Hello there! How's your summer going? Ours is in full swing, and this is a pre-canned blog post today as we are away at the seaside enjoying some family R&R. Nevertheless, I have a new layout to share with you today that I am sharing along with my other July project over on the Blue Fern Studios blog today.

Sometimes you see a piece of chipboard, and a project starts to take shape in your mind. That's what happened for me with the Butterfly Grid. I saw it, and a project started to evolve. I knew that I wanted to pair it with the Butterfly Kisses title and the Tattered Butterflies, and my layout grew out of that.

One of the glorious things about the Blue Fern Studios panels is the ability to cut them apart and use them in whatever way best suits your project. I cut mine into the big piece on the left and the smaller piece on the right, and have some leftover for another project. I primed the whole thing with gesso, and then set about colouring the butterflies with shimmery watercolour paints.

For the grid piece on the right I added one of the Tattered Butterflies to coordinate with the butterflies in the Butterfly Grid.

For the Butterfly Kisses title piece I sprinkled on embossing powders in pink, blue and yellow randomly and heat set them.

 The colours of the Ombre Dreams papers inspired my colour choices, and I loaded on media in the background to create a fun, sunny layout.
