Blue Fern Studios "Happiness! and another chance of winning my give away

Hello hello! 

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! I know I am, as the programme for the students I am teaching in London says "free time". No need to guess what I am doing - SHOPPING!! 

Tomorrow we have a ride on the London Eye to look forward to, just as last year we will enjoy London's landmarks from above with a glass of proper champers in our hands - chin chin!!


To celebrate the arrival of spring, I am giving away 2 full sets of Swedish Maja Designs new collection called Vintage Spring Basics.

The only thing you have to do, is to leave a comment on this blog post. If you leave a comment on my previous blogpost of Monday, 11 March as well, you will have two chances in the draw! My give away is of course open to anyone anywhere in the world!

This closes on midnight Tuesday, 19 March CET.
I will announce the lucky winners in the evening CET of Wednesday, 20 March.


It was my turn to share 3 pages over at the Blue Fern Studios blog on 11 March.

In my previous blog post I shared the first two, here is the third one that I have called "Happiness" (is to see things grow).

 All papers used on my page are new Prima; Divine and Lyric mainly.

I have used the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios PRINCESS WINDOW under the photos.

 The weathered-flaking-paint effect was achieved by dabbing the chipboard in pale straw yellow acrylic paint and distress ink in Vintage Photo over and over several times using only very light dabs of both. When I had achieved the layers I wanted, I randomly painted the chippie in Tatterd Angels Glimmer Glaze in Saffron.

I have also used a Blue Fern Studios Spring Iris - Large to the right of the photos.

I am really so pleased at how the irises turned out. The stems were painted heavily in Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Organic Garden. The heads were misted in Mister Huey's Opaque White and Tattered Angels Lavender Fields. The Lavender Fields was added several times to get intense pooling. The dark pinkish is Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Lipstick Pink.

If you click  HERE   you will be taken to the CEM shop where you can find it.

The title Happiness is from the Blue Fern Studios word set GOOD VIBES that you can find HERE in the C'est Magnifique shop.

 I gave it the same treatment as the Princess Window, please see above.
