Blue Fern Studios -3rd April page + Easter Bloghop winner + the winner of my give-away

Yes!! it's raining! washing away dirty snow, rinsing the streets and bringing moisture down to Mother Earth. Spring, spring, bring it on - more rain pls!

First the winner of my give-away. Congratulations Romy!! 3 packs of Corine flowers waiting for you! I'll pop them into the mail for you if you contact me with your postal address. xoxox

Riikka Kovasin's Easter bloghop was a great success! The first day the counter hit over 700 visits and the hop post directly was totally viewed over 500 times. Shame on me, I totally forgot to post the link to Riikkas blog announcing the winner, so sorry.


Also sharing the third of my Blue Fern Studios  April pages - "Memento Vivere", which means live in the moment, enjoy what's here and now.

Once again all papers used are from Swedish Maja Design's new collection Vintage Springtime  Basics.

There's a whole sheet with beautiful pastel coloured butterflies in this collection. Perfect size for both cards and layouts!

The photo is taken by my stepdaughter. Seeing the first crocuses always brings that feel of elated happiness - finally it's on its way - Spring!

Subtle script masking/modeling pasting. Masking/inking in the berry pink and vintage brown. Stamping in orange. And of course my favest mist of all - Mr Huey's Opaque White.

I used 3 Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces on my page: The Evening Lamp Post (074660), the Organic Vine (074516), the Country Picket Fence (074561)

Here is what they look like raw:

Check out Blue Moon Scrapbooking and their video showing the BFS chippies! sooo cool!

I smeared modelling paste on the Country Picket Fence and then painted it in Glimmer Glaze Coconut Shell. Gives some serious knobbly texture.

On the Organic Vine I used crackle paint in Shabby Shutters and then while it was still wet, I randomly dabbed some Cosmic Shimmer powder here and there.

This adorable dove is a gift from sweet Riikka Kovasin. Kiitos murunen!!

Thank you darlings, so happy you had the time to pop by! xoxo

In my next post I'll be sharing my Prima March BAP and PPP.
