Many of you already know that London is my favest city in the world and that I go there at least once a year. Well, now it's all booked and ready - going on 11 March! First some days all to myself, last year I spent them visiting exhibitions and museums. Victoria & Albert is a must that's for sure! Then I'll be joined by a group of Swedish PAs.
Not only that, I also have my trip in October booked and ready. Going to the AGM of European Management Assistants of which I am a member. Really looking forward to meeting all my pals from Europe again.
Now to scrappy business.
Very excited and thrilled today - my first blog post over at Blue Fern Studios has gone live. CLICK HERE to see it. 3 of the other ladies of the DT have been introduced before me - Jennifer Snyder, Patter Cross and Erin Blegen.
This is what I created - "Paris";
So in love with the Blue Fern Frame, all scrolls and delish swirls. Just like the ironworks of many a Parisian building.
This is what it looks like raw
Blue Fern Frame
At the moment the chippies can only be bought from C'est Magnifique kit club's store,
I primed the frame with gessoe to start with and then started a bonanza of misting. I used Tattered Angels mists in Wheatfields, Apple, Suede and Gold before I randomly touched up the whole frame in acrylic gold paint with my finger.
Fab photo by Allan Grant, 1950. Very chic lady oh là là! Check out those guys on the platform, want to shout something less polite at them for not helping her out with her luggage.
For the background I used soap wrappers, they have the most delighful and romantic rose and bumble bee pattern in pink, gold and cream. I didn't remove the stickers holding the paper in place, they make nice subtle labels under the gessoe.
Et voilà, my first project for Blue Fern Studios!
I have seen the amazing projects the other in the DT have created, they will be revealed on the Blue Fern blog every second day. My posting date will always be the 11th each month, US EST time.
Before I sign off, I'll share a sneak of the Color..Stories..Inspiration.. case file # 54 that will go live later today US EST time, midnight European time.
We're celebrating CSI's 1st birthday anniversary and have something special up our sleeve every week in January. Stay tuned!
I will be back on Tuesday to share my take on the case file with you.
Have a most wonderful weekend even if you're not getting sand between your toes as Helen Tilbury does in Bali at the moment, or Helena Virpi on the Australian Gold Coast!
Cheers! xoxo Eila
