Frolic In The Sun
(Blue Fern Studios DT Reveal Part 1 / Words & Paintery and Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo challenges)

It's time to share with you my monthly DT reveal for Blue Fern Studios, and this month, in wait of the brand new BFS collection, Seaside Cottage (click HERE to see it - it is absolutely gorgeous!!), I decided to dig into my BFS paper stash and pick some of my all-time favorites... oldies but certainly still goodies!

Let's start today with this very sunny layout featuring the beautiful Frolic collection!

I thought that these papers were perfect for this very Summery page, also inspired by the latest challenge at Words & Paintery. Click HERE for all the details on this challenge.

I am also entering my layout into a brand new challenge blog for me over at Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo and this month's challenge is all about sunshine! Click HERE for the details!

The colour palette and sunshine theme have such a happy inspiring feel that I tried to incorporate into my layout, starting with the title 'Frolic in the Sun' colored in an ombre effect over some stenciled yellow sunrays, all using different Imagine Ink embossing powders and glitter.

Below you see some of the pretty Attic Charm Daisies.  The yellow one was an Attic Charm Glitter Rose from which I removed the center and replaced with a royal blue brad to go with my palette.

I created the illusion of a sun to go along with my sunrays by using the smaller Looped Frame in the upper right corner of my design while using the larger one behind my photo. They were both covered with a combination of Buttercup and Honey embossing powders.

I fussy cut some of the butterflies from the patterned paper and popped them up throughout.

This sweet photo of little Jade 'frolicking in the sun', very proudly showing off her parasol, was the perfect photo for my page and the Words & Paintery challenge!

I will be back tomorrow with details of another of my Blue Fern Studios DT reveal creations!
