 Page two for your viewing pleasure.  For this one i started with punching notebook edges and ripping outside edges, next ink and layer onto a background sheet.  Then let the layering begin, tags, paper, journalling cards, stenciling with modeling paste, rub ons, chipboard gears, and metal- always metal.

splatters of embossing enamels, and brads.  You can see the modeling paste in the background, i used a water color brush and vintage photo distress ink to paint stencil.

Painted the gear with distress paint, sanded and inked, and of course more layering!

Also Blue Fern studios has also released some new chipboard shapes.
here are the ones created by me:

getting PAID

yes i know i have been bad no post for over a month, but it is all in the past now.  First off i started designing chipboard for Blue Fern Studios.  Super excited now the designs in my head i can scrapbook with and get paid to design them what can be better.  I am pretty sure everything i earn will go towards chipboard but who cares.  The first few i sent in were industrial-ish, this month i sent in winter, they are still in the production phase so more about those later.  Here are a few now available.  I think my FAB is lightbulbs, i can't wait til i can start scrapbooking with them.  If you are looking to buy you an check out Blue Fern website which has a list of where their products are sold at.  On that list you will find my friend Wendy's online store website, a cold lake local.












And now a page, every year i create 4 pages for my friend (and get paid) and she gives them as Christmas gifts.  Here is my FAV from this years patch.

 I started with modelling paste and brick stencil, i had to do in several stages to get as many as i wanted on the page.  Once dry i colored with color blooms, lots of spray and water then hold vertical to get the drips.  I used a black gel pen to doddle around the brick.  Once i attached photos, added random rub ons around photos.  Created clusters of metal goodies, then (the best part) i sprinkled on stampendous embossing enamel (aged taupe) and heat from the bottom.  I love the result!

More pages later, need to save something for my next post.
