Berry71Bleu Sit And Dream Banner

It's the 1st Friday of the month, and time for my Berry71Bleu Pages and Tags Reveal! Today is a bittersweet day for me, because it is my last reveal for Berry Bleu as a Design Team member. I just want to take the time to thank Marivic for the wonderful opportunity of working on such a talented team. I have loved working with Marivic's gorgeous tags, and it has been a pleasure to design for her. So, thank you Marivic, and to all of my Berry Bleu Sisters, who have never ceased to amaze me with their talents.

This month our sponsors are Studio 75. Studio75 is a Polish manufacturer of scrapbooking papers and other craft embellishments.

Studio71 Prize: The entire summer&latte collection.

And here is my project that I created using that gorgeous line, along with some of their chipboard pieces and my stunning Berry71Bleu tag that just happened to have the perfect colors in it for these papers.

 I cut a chipboard piece from a template that I made, and then covered one  side with Summer Latte 03 paper and the other side with Summer Latte 02 paper that I had distressed and inked the edges on.

I then used a Prima Stencil and modeling paste to create the raised, texture area of the banner. With the stencil still in place, I layered on layers of color to bring out the color in my tag and in the papers.

 Next, I took a layer of the Studio 75 Latte o1 paper, distressed and inked the edges and then used it as a mat for my  Berry71Bleu tag. The tag was instant glamour, and I really didn't need to much more to finish the project off. I added in a couple of small flowers, and then took 2 of the swirls from the Studio 75 Summer & Latte chipboard pieces, painted them with perfect pearls, added some Prima e-pearls and then tucked them under the tag. I then took the large medallion from the same chipboard panel (I loved that the chipboard matched the patterns in some of the papers), painted it with Perfect Pearls and added a Prima E-Pearl and then tucked it under the side of the tag.

To finish out the banner, I created the title work using Studio 75 Summer & Latte Alphas, twisted some hand dyed seam binding and sheer ribbon together and attached it to the banner with Tim Holtz Clips that I alchohol inked and added e-pearls to, and then added on a set of my Memory Keeper butterflies from my Etsy Shop for lots of dimension.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects over at Berry71Bleu, and I am so grateful to all of you who support my work and that of Marivic! May you find the time to "Sit And Dream" ~Renea
