Once Upon A Time

Happy Friday to you. 
Today I have another share of a design layout that I have created for Bella Paperie using lots of Blue Fern goodies including my all time favourite thing to use ......yes Chipboards!! And this layout has a lot. So if you too love to use Chipboards then this may interest you.

I have a few close-ups and details of the layout below which I have titled "Once Upon A Time". 

I started off the layout with Stamping the framework of the papers! I have used a mixture of Archival Inks and Distress Inks.

I have also used some Prima goodies including the Birdhouse and Butterfly resins, and the Hello Pastel Prima Flowers. The smaller flat flowers are also Prima which I have added a drop of Liquid Pearls (Buttercup) to the centres. 

Love love love these chipboard flourishes. These have been inked with Distress Inks and covered with dimensional magic! 

The chipboard Princess Window has been inked and painted with Distress Crackle Paint (Picket Fence). Once dry I then again inked it and then gave it another coat this time with Crackle Accents, and then I inked it yet again and wiped away excess with baby wipe!! Time consuming but well worth the outcome.

Beautiful hand dyded lace which is also available from Bella Paperie. This beauty was cut in half down the centre and draped around the heart.

I have used the Symphony Corners as butterfly wings, by turning them on an angle and having them come out from behind the Princess Window. The chippies were treated similarly to the Princess Window but I have used a lot more inking on these. The photo doesn't clearly depict the true colours.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit here. Please don't be shy let me know what you think.

Till next time...
