Blue Fern Studios My February DT pages

Thank you so very much to everyone for joining in on the Blue Fern Studios' Blog Hop that took place 8 -10 February! The winners of BFS' Grand Prize will be announced shortly, the winner of my own present will be announced on Wednesday.

It is 11 February which means my turn over at Blue Fern Studios. Today I am going to show you the 2 other pages that I have made for February.

The first one - "Rust" - features both the Country Picket Fence (074561) and the Blooming Flourish (074509).

All papers used are from Swedish Maja Design's collection called "A Walk In The Forest". It is a very old collection that seems to have been re-printed as I am currently seeing many in their DT using it.

Pink Paislee and Prima stamping, gold acrylic paint and TH distress in Black Soot through a mask.

The chippie flourishes were first misted in Tattered Angels Gold and Olive Vine,
before I chalked them in Olive Pastel, Dark Moss, Amber Clay and Pumpkin Spice.

A rustic feel with Tim Holz metal cogs, wooden board paper, burlap and rough twine.

This photo is by the Finnish photographer whom I've mentioned many times before. 
I just love how she captures little scenes of Finnish rural life, of people and 
familiar things that make the Finn in me come alive with many many 
memories of the countryside where my mother and father grew up.

I cut the fence in half and painted it in white acrylic paint before script 
stamping it in red.

My second page that I have called "Origins",  features the small Organic Vine Corner that you can find in the C'est Magnifique shop HERE. 

Organic Vine Corner - Large 

Papers used are from Prima "Romantique".
If the photo of the tractor is quintessentially Finnish to me, 
this photo of a red wooden house is equally very 
Swedish to me. 

You find these houses in the countryside, 
always with lush lilac bushes and granny flowers in the 
flower beds. Often with white gingerbread work 
lovingly carved by someone a hundred or 
more years ago.

I am very much into gold glimmer mist at the moment, 
just LOVE the stuff!

The Vine Corners were misted in Tattered Angels Gold, Cranberry Zing,
Wild Currant and Black Cherry. Can you see that luscious glimmer in there!

All the Blue Fern Studios chipboards can be bought in the C'est Magnifique's shop HERE

I will be back on Wednesday when I will announce the winner of my Blue Fern Studios Blog Hop present and share my page for CSI case file nbr 58. Here's a sneak of the beautiful palette!

I have been creating behind the scenes for something that will be revealed on 26 March. Have missed popping in to see what fabulousness you guys have been creating of late, am catching up on visits and commenting.

Wishing you a really great week, if you want to - see ya on Wednesday!
