July inspiration by Elena Volchkova

Hi everyone! Today is my day to talk about the dreams and inspiration. And it is the sea today. My new love - a collection Seaside Cottage. And the first two pages of it.

"Marine dreams" layout

In this work, it embodied gentle and romantic thoughts about the sea.. The sea always gives us great emotions, it is always waiting for us, and we look forward to seeing him ... waiting and dreaming.

The background is very complicated. I used the Embark paper as my background. And the mix of lace, twigs, beads. And paint, paint, paint!

Anticipation from "Serendipity Words 1" set was covered with Imagine Ink Lilac embossing powders.

Seaside Flourish was covered with mixture of Imagine Ink embossing powders in Petal and 14 karat, that so good together.
Flower from " Seaside Lilies" set.

To show the sun glare, I used Sunshine glitter. It's so sunny!

Seaside Flourish I cut into two parts and this piece has become accent in the corner. Colored to with mixture of Imagine Ink embossing powders in Petal and 14 karat.

"Family trip" layout

In this layout there is the story of one wonderful holiday, when a little girl was vacationing on the sea. Photos preserve for us the memory and emotions. This is so wonderful! You can always go back to childhood;)
I used the Voyage paper from the Seaside Cottage Collection as my background paper. And a lot of romantic and tropical details.

These flashlights enchanted me. They are magic! I wanted to use them together, just a little bit in different shades.

Large lantern was covered with mixture of Imagine Ink embossing powders in Honey and Mystic Plum. Little is also covered with a mixture. But other shades - Petal and 14 karat Imagine Ink embossing powders.

Stamps Forever and Postal Textures helps to make an interesting background.

"Reminisce" I covered to with Imagine Ink Mystic Plum embossing powder.

In this work I use the flowers of the sets: Attic Charm Daisies, Seaside Lilies and Attic Charm Glitter Roses.

"In the Garden" layout

Layout for a girl who loves to be photographed. In this work I tried to continue flowers of pictures in the background and in the decor. I think a bush was very interesting.

Petite window secreted in the bushes behind the curtains of lace. Window was covered with Imagine Ink 14 karat embossing powders.

I used the Serendipity Medley stamp with Imagine Ink 14 karat embossing powder to create some details on my background. They are almost invisible, but they sparkle in the sun.

"Reminisce" I covered to with Imagine Ink Mystic Plum embossing powder.
Sparkles on the background - Dusty Rose Glitter.

It had not yet bloomed ...
So I bought a cut flowers.
Daughter is very happy this smile!
Exactly Million Dollar SMILE!!!

This title is wonderful.
It is good to the photograph of the smile! !

I painted to become the gradation with yellow and the ink of the orange.

I use the cardboard of the mesh well.

I processed it with emboss powder (AUBURN) partially.

It was painted gesso to the chip board (Paisley & Vine Medley).
Lightly coat the yellow ink to dry
The yellow glitter SUNSHINE was put in the bond.

July share from Karine

Hi there, Blue Fern Studios fans,

It's Karine here with you today to share the three layouts I created this month.


My first layout was created using the Hushed paper from the Tranquility collection. I based my color combo on the colors in the paper. I stamped a few times with the Making Plans stamp.

My layout is based on the Crosshatch frame that I embossed with Imagine Ink auburn and garnet embossing powders. 

To add more interest around my picture, I used the Ironwork Edges, that I embossed with a dark brown embossing powder. 

As for embellishments, I used some Courtship Blooms dans some Attic Charm Daisies. 

My title, the Happy word from The Optimist Word Set, was left raw.

Next, I got to play with the beautiful Seaside Cottage collection. For this layout, I used the Mermaid paper. I altered it with two different stencils and with two texture paste: one white, one a gorgeous sandy color. I also used a blue ink spray.

I choose the Persian Ornament to go under my picture. I embossed it with Imagine Ink snow embossing powder.

To go over my picture, I chose the oval frame from the Mini Frames set, which I embossed also using the snow embossing powder. 

I used some of the Tranquil Roses and Lilies in my flower arrangements. 

My title piece, part of the Funny, Giggle, Smile set, was embossed in snow. Look at this close up on the paper. Isn't it just gorgeous?

My last layout uses the Regalia paper again from the Seaside Cottage collection. I just loooooove this paper! On my background, I used the Postal Textures stamps.

On the left side of the layout, I used the Royal Border, which I painted with an aqua metallic paint. While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled some Imagine Ink pearl embossing powder and heat set it. I love the end result. I also used a speech bubble with a heart (I hid the tail of the speech bubble under my flowers) from the Picture Perfect set. It was given the same treatment as the Royal Border.

To frame my main composition, I cut one of the Classic Ornaments in half and used both pieces (painted and embossed) around my flowers.

I used flowers from the Seaside Lilies, Tranquil Blooms and Tranquil Roses and Lilies. The little heart shape above the large mint flower comes from the heart speech bubble from the Picture Perfect set. 

My title is part of the French Adjectives 2 set. It was coated with white gesso, and then painted with cream ink.
