July 2014 Sketch Challenge at Blue Fern Studios

   Another month and another great sketch challenge by the Blue Fern Studios. I love their sketches and whenever I find enough time to create a project I take part in their challenges. This is my take on their sketch this month. I used two older collections from Webster's Pages that I've had in my stash for a few years but all the same with very beautiful papers. They are Garden Gala and Hollywood Vogue. The BFS chipboard pieces I used are from 'The Optimist Set' and the 'Brigitte Butterfly Set'. I only used one half of the biggest butterfly in the set which was cut in two. I put some Diamond Stickles on the chipboard pieces and then brushed over with white acrylic paint.

Here is the sketch:

and the layout:

    As you can see there are a lot of gorgeous Prima flowers, the pink heart trim from Webster's Pages, some laces from my stash, wooden embellishments, fussycut elements from different papers, black Prima pearls in different sizes, some doilies, word stickers from WP, the Snow Cap Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber from Ranger, etc. I used the white acrylic paint for the chipboard pieces, the flowers and I painted the edges of the layout with it. I made my own texture/modelling paste from a recipe I found on Gabrielle Pollacco's blog together with the Crafters Workshop mini bricks template which I used to create the background of the layout.
   Here are some close ups:
