A couple of pages from Bente using Deja Vu and Montage collections.

Hi, today it's my turn again here on  the blog and I have made some pages to showcase some of the beautiful Blue Fern Studios chipboards and papers. They are such a treat to work with.

Here is my first page.


I decided on some pink and yellow tones mainly and painted my 'Floral Medley frame' using a pretty yellow tone that I picked up from the designs in the paper. 
The papers are from the 'Montage ' collection.

I used some Blue Fern Studios stamps as well. 
The hot-air balloon is part of the 'Journey' set and I even used some of te stamps from  'Halftone'.

Here are a few close ups as well:


I stamped the balloon once on a pink paper and once on a yellow one.



My second page for today :



Previously I have focused on the yellow and lilac tones in the 'Deja Vu' papers as these are really some of my fave colours, but as you see it's possible to pick a different colour scheme entirely :-)

I used the green sheet for the background adnd the wood patterned paper on top. As these are pretty neutral you can really pick almost any colour to add as accents and embellishments.

Here are a few close ups too:


I used the new 'Deja Vu border chippie' painted green as a base for my page. I added a summery photo and picked pretty, illuminant yellow and red to go with it. 
It's such a vibrant and energetic combination.


I included a chipboard from the 'Ironworks accents' as a base for a small embellishmentcluster. 



 This ornamental chipboard border that goes with the Dej Vu collection is one of my preferred pieces right now. I hope you enjoyed my pages today and you will be back soon again to see what my friends in the DT are up to!

Have a lovely day!

Memories Captured by Marta Lapkowska

Hello everyone,
It's Marta Lapkowska here.
I hope you are doing great.
I am back to you with my new page and full video tutorial. 
You can see my creative process step by step.

As you ca see this is very magical page. I wanted to recreate the forest and dreamy scenry from the photo. I added some dry moss, thread to build my page.


I love the colours of Deja Vu paper collection, so soft and elegant. My favourite way of altering the chipboards is to emboss them with white embossing powder.

I hope you will enjoy my creating process. Have fun !

Deja Vu Collection layout Yuko


Hello!Friends!It's   my projects for  May.
I used the Deja Vu series released newly.

It isn't usually to use purple, but this purple is very beautiful!
The other colors combined with that (yellow and green) are also exquisite!





【Moments IN TIME】
Layout in purple Maine.
The favorite top in the purple layout made by now!
Because is it the color which isn't usually used? Somewhat fresh!
The yellow was made the accent according to the pattern  paper, and it was a correct answer!

This chipboard is also very pretty!


A purple part, use  SHIMMERZ.
Green  part use  liquid Pearl.
And empty light modeling paste is piled up.

The commemorative stamp added to this series of Blue Fern Studios
 was put on paper and it was cut.

Stamp: Déjà Vu - Click Image to Close
The stamp  is easy to push and easy to use for a line to be delicate.
The place which can be cut and used is also very convenient.

Paper    Deja vu    Luster/Luminaries/Petites Cartes/Voyage A Paris
Chipboard   Sophie's Window / Birds on a Branch




【Fabulous】
Expansive space was imagined featuring a picture of the daughter of the smiling face 
which bursts who runs after a soap bubble.


Big square frame cardboard, presence using are plentiful 
and do good work without but insisting too much.



I pushed the paper and cut the stamp of this balloon.The black stamp is good; accentuate.

Stamp: Journey - Click Image to Close




I'd like to take out a soap bubble sense, and gel medium was taken on.

Two stories told with the same paper - by Zanka

Here's the situation: imagine you have a beautiful sheet of paper and just too many ideas for how to use it, so you can make up your mind... Can you relate to that ?
I'm the lucky girl here because I had TWO pieces of the same beautiful paper, so I could tell two different stories in slightly different styles. To make it even more fun, I used similar composition, embellishment types and the same techniques .

This is an original vintage photo from the family archive, so it deserved a vintage framing. I kept it soft and feminine. In this page I kept the beautiful border strip, it's discrete but it makes a stunning accent.
In this page I used the soft tones of the paper as a background  to contrasting lively colours of the embellisments, including pieces of Ombre Dreams.
In both layouts I'm using the mix of plain and decorated chipboards. The technique for the coloured chippies is to prime with white gesso,  paint them with watersoluble crayons or gelatos and cover with a layer of clear UTEE. I hope you can see the final effect on the close-ups below:


Supplies:
Papers: Deja vu - Friperies, Petites Cartes.  Ombre Dreams
Chipboards: Majestic frame, Dresden corsage, Floral medley frame, Chelsea vines, Doily bunting

Thank you so much for joining today! Perhaps you have some projects created with Friperies ? I'd love to see them!

Deja Vu Projects with Einat Kessler

Hey crafty friends Einat Kessler here with some inspiration projects with the new Deja Vu collection.

I have to say this is my favorite collection (so far) I just love the purples and yellows and how they go together so well. They are very versatile and can be used for feminine flowery projects as well as masculine projects.

"The Story Noted"

My first project is an interactive layout. I've used the new Valerie's Windows to create an openable window on my page. Under the window I added a photo of me.
I created the entire layout around the window adding a brick wall and flowers. It all tied in really well with the street light on the side of the paper.




Check out the video to see how I created the window and the layout.


Mini Brag Book

My second project is a mini brag book. When I saw the Petites Carted paper I couldn't resist it. It just screamed brag book to me. I used a really easy technique to create the book by simply folding the squares in a accordion shape. Then I inserted a ribbon to tie the book. I cut a few flowers from the La Plume paper and added on the little cover.




Hope you liked the projects!

Have fun creating!
Einat

May Projects by Angelica Franssen

Hello friends! Today I'm here to share with you my May projects using the Deja Vu Collection.

My first project is a layout based on May's sketch. I lightly painted the La Plume paper with some watered down gesso. Then did some misting. I used the Friperies paper as the background photo mat.

For the title I used the word "Wonder" from the Delight Set. I also used the Deja Vu Collage Border. The three chipboard pieced I used were all treated the same. First I applied gesso and misted with three different color mists.

The bird cage is from the "Tweets" Collection.

I loved the colors in the Lustre paper. It's like a greenish gray, so I mixed in some purple. I also used the Atelier paper for some background layering.

The title "Discover" is from the  Journey, Discover, Explore Set. I misted it with a dark color so it can pop off the page.

When I was searching for a photo I found the young  woman at the door or window. I thought that the Sara's Screen Door chippy was a perfect match.
 I used two of the four Small Symphony Corners to further frame my photo.

For my last project I made a canvas. I took a 10x8 and put three small 3x3 on top for dimension. I first treated the canvas with mist. Then did some masking with modeling paste. I used some scraps from the Un Voyage A Paris papers.
I used bits from the Quatrefoil Panel.

The butterflies are from the Magical Monarchs Set.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Layouts with Déja Vu collection by Keren Tamir



I'm excited to showcase my projects today at the Blue Fern Studios Blog. 
I've used the Deja Vu collection for both these layouts.
Both layouts were created on the same background but with two different colour schemes which shows the paper's versatility.

"Sweetheart"


Although its spring, my first project is snow filled with earthy colours.
I framed my daughter's picture in the Winter flake frame which I personally designed for Blue Fern Studios. I covered it randomly with cream coloured embossing powder and then inked it in brown.


The background was stamped with the Deja Vu Stamps, the vintage edges stamp and the journey stamp. All were inked with brown distress ink.
Finally I used the Sweetheart word from the Lovebirds set.


<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

"Perfect photo op"


Thie second layout was also stamped in the background with a new BFS stamp. I used the widgets stamp to create the texture in the background.


This is an old picture of my son. He must be 3 years old here. I framed it in one of the vintage labels chipboard pieces which I coloured in green distress ink. I also used the seaweed chipboard to add as an embellishment. 



Thank you so much for visiting the Blue Fern Studios blog!!
Have a wonderful day!!
