Blue Fern Studios - Perky, Beautiful Boys

For my second Blue Fern Studios layout this month, I chose a softer colour palette, inspired by this photo of my boys taken last winter.

I started by adding some texture to the background inspired by the printed images on the paper with Shimmerz new Inklingz paint, texture paste and a new Prima mask (575953) and stamping. I love how multilayered the images on the papers are - it makes it so easy to add custom background work.

 For this layout I also layered multiple chippies. The top layer is the word "Perky" from The Optimist Words set, which I treated simply with green chalk ink.

 The next layer is the Spring Branch, which I painted with several colours of chalk ink to create dimension for the bark and leaves before adding a couple of flowers.

My last layer is the Floral Clock. I fussy cut the "Timeless Beauty" section from a second sheet of Timeless paper, and used the clock hands from the Floral Clock to top it off. The Floral Clock itself is behind the paper, providing an ornate frame.

 To add a little dimension to the Floral Clock, I first dry embossed it, then painted it with several colours of metallic paint.
