Contemplation~Blue Fern Studios April Sketch Layout

Have you had a chance to check out the Blue Fern Studios April Sketch Challenge?
If you haven't already, hop on over to the Blog, create a layout with the gorgeous sketch, and then get entered into the FABulous Giveaway!!

I used the sketch, along with the new Courtship Lane Collection to create the following layout:

I started with a layer of Courtship Lane Royal Street Paper and then added a 2nd layer of Courtship Lane Royal Street Paper that I heavily distressed and inked. 

I added a layer of Timeless Lace for softness, 

 then took a Ruth's Doily Chipboard piece, painted it with gesso and script stamped it with clear embossing ink, coated it with Imagine Ink Ebony Embossing Powder tapped off the excess and heat set it to get a gorgeous raised script to match my book theme.

For the floral layer, I added a large fabric flower, and then layered in some of the new Blue Fern Courtship Lane Roses, some mulberry paper leaves, feathers and a resin swirl.

I then did some tearing at the top of my layout and took a Blue Fern Chipboard Peek A Boo, gave it the same technique treatment as the Doily, tucked it behind the tear and then sewed up the tear with some embroidery thread and tied a bow.
I added drips and splatters of gesso and glitter glass randomly to my layout for lots of visual interest.

I added some more of the Courtship Lane Roses, leaves and feathers to the top corner of the photo,

and added a Silver Pocket Watch that I filled with different beads and Glitter Glass for some really YUMMY Texture.

To finish up my layout, I took a Blue Fern Serendipity 1 Word-Contemplation and heat embossed it with the Ebony Embossing Powder, and then added on a set of my handcrafted Sweet Dreams Lavender Butterflies.

I love creating beautiful pieces with hints of grunge and shabbiness and the new Blue Fern Courtship Lane Collection was perfect for pulling this look off
for this layout!! Thank you for joining me and I hope you get a chance to play along with the Sketch Challenge!! Hugs ~Renea
