This week i am over a Blue Fern Studios to participate in their monthly challenge. This challenge is close to my heart since i design chipboard for them and 3 of the 5 chipboard pieces on my layout our my design. This month challenge looks like this
and i created this
I started with a vanilla piece of cardstock, and image transferred pattern paper- the harlequin pattern and the bird nest. Add color via prima color bloom sprays and distress ink. Then i thought needs white! I glued on the chipboard and painted over with white gesso, dry brushed around chipboard as well to get on page. Now too white so i added a couple blue paint coats. I used distress paint with lots of water so it would be transparent.
I also LOVE the empty space i have on the layout never underestimate the importance of white space (otherwise know as empty space). Not every corner needs to have something, in fact it will make your picture stand out more if you make it the focal point. There's my rant, anyone who has every taken a class from me knows this rant.
