The May sketch from Blue Fern Studios and a page using the beautiful new Déjà Vu collection.

I am sure many of you hve already seen and admired the new papers, stamps, and chipboards belonging to the new Déjà Vu collection designed by Michelle Singh for Blue Fern Studios.
I love the soft tones of light yellowy vanilla, lavender and springy pink.

It's easy to create both a vintage project or one with  a romantic shabby chic feel to it 
with this feminine collection.

As you see I tried to keep the design pretty simple and just let the papers and a few embellishments take center stage. It is no secret I am a fan of lilac lavender, and purple and will gladly combine these colours with a soft yellow. I love how the flowers go so well with the papers.

Can you see the tiny tiny pearls (by Prima Marketing) that I added to the lamppost- chipboard and also to some of the green leaves. I like the added texture they give. 
I added some neutral coconut fibers here and there to lighten up the design. 

In this shot you can see the different layers of my page. 
I softly distress all the edges by hand before assembling the papers.

Most of the gorgeous small blooms here are by the Norwegian brand Papirdesign and they have a really huge assortment of paper flowers. I love them!!

After adding my flowers to where I wanted them I gave them a lick of white paint to 
'shabby them up' a little. ;-)

I hope you like the new Déjà Vu collection as much as I do and also that you take some
inspiration from what I made with it.

Here is a picture of the stamp set I used as well:

And last but not least;...
Here is the beautiful sketch that is our challenge for the lovely month of May!!

Look HERE to see the challenge-post and to see what my fellow DT members created :-)

Take care!

Layout for Blue Fern Studios April post.

 HI there!
I hope you all enjoyed the shadowbox from my April post on the Blue Fern Studiosblog! The second project that I shared is a layout, which as you know is what I would normally make. :-)

I used several of the gorgeous papers from the 'Deja Vu' collection, Nowadays I really like working with the colour purple.(As opposed to when I first started scrapping when I found it such a 
hard colour to work with). I just love the purple/yellow combo here.

To emphasize the purple tone of the papers I decided to paint my chipboards purple as well. 
I used part of the large chickenwirepurple panel and Deja Vu dangles.

I used most of the papers in the collection and had so much fun trying out what papers to mix and match. I distressed and layered some of the journalling cards in the center as a mat for my photo. 
The photo is one of the series that was taken by the talented Paula Pascual when we met at Sizzix
in Wales last Summer. It was fun!

I also coloured some of the flowers with paint to make them match better. As most of my stuff is in boxes at the moment due to the move I am really challenged to find enough other supplies to complement what I have. That's why I had to paint my flowers ;-) It is really a strain on Mrs. Mojo!
If you look closely you might even notice I used some of the new Deja Vu stamps. ;-)

Finally I have a page for you that I made a little while ago, -actually at the end of last month. 
It was done for the Blue Fern Studios monthly sketch challenge. 

And below is the page that I made with inspiration from the above sketch. 

Okay, that's all for now! 
Thank you for checking out Blue Fern Studios and my projects.
See you next month!
