Seaside Rendezvous~

For my last, Blue Fern, August Project, I created a soft, vintage look layout that captures the soft sea foam look of the Beach.

I used both sides of the Blue Fern Seaside Cottage Voyage Paper. Designer Michele Singh creates such gorgeous papers and I tried to keep my look fairly clean in order to show off the details that she put into this paper.

I ran a piece of lace down the side to add a Vintage touch, since I was using a wonderful Vintage photo. 

I used a Blue Fern Seashell Chipboard Frame to house my photo. I stipple painted it with white gesso, and then randomly dabbed with a embossing ink dabber on the places that I wanted to accent, and then used Imagine Ink Sea Mist Embossing Powder, to add that wonderful, soft sea foam look to the frame.

I then used a Blue Fern Leafy Page Accent that I did the same technique to to add a flourish accent below the frame.

Next came a flower layer of mulberry paper flowers, a Blue Fern Tranquil Bloom, and a brooch accent.

I then created "waves" by tearing white tissue paper and layering them in a wave pattern and accented them with teal glitter glass. I just love how wonderful my handcrafted Sweet Dreams Teal Butterflies looked with this collection!

In the top corner, I took some more of the Blue Fern Leafy Page Chipboard Accents, along with an anchor piece that was left over from the Blue Fern Seaside Charms Piece that I cut down for my 1st August Layout ( I hate waste), 

used the same coloring technique as I used on the other chipboard pieces and added on some flowers, and a butterfly.

Here you can see how Delicious that stipple painting and embossing powders look close up. I just love texture!!

Just look at all that dimension those Blue Fern Products add. Even when you scrap in a more clean style, you can add so much visual interest with those amazing products!!

I hope that you have enjoyed all my August Blue Fern Projects, and that you have been inspired to grab some of those FAV family vacation photos or beach elements, and create something beautiful for yourself!! Until next time, Hugs ~Renea
