Dreams Come True Canvas
(Blue Fern Studios DT Reveal Part 3)

I am back today with my final DT Reveal project for Blue Fern Studios, a mixed media canvas using lots of BFS chipboard, flowers and Imagine Ink mediums.

My base was created using layers upon layers of mediums.  I have to be honest, I started over this project about 3 times, not being satisfied with the result.  They say... third time's a charm.  Well, this proved to be true for me with this canvas.  After much gesso, molding paste, crackle paint, mists and inks, I added the final touches to it with some Imagine Ink embossing powder and glitter mixed in with glitter glass to create the pinkish shimmery texture.

I chose the title Dreams Come True as the theme for my canvas because we are all dreamers at heart, and I'm hoping that this canvas could bring a little hope and inspiration to someone somewhere someday.  I first covered this piece with Peacock embossing powder.  Such a beautiful colour!!!  And then, I dabbed some clear gesso and heated it to add some bubbly texture to it.

All the flowers used on my canvas are from Blue Fern Studios.

I fussy cut some butterflies and added die-cut scalloped squares, all from the Frolic line.  The "Dare to Dream" sentiment comes from the Paisley & Vine collection.

And last, but certainly not least, take a look at the gorgeous Victorian Fan!  I used Lime embossing powder on it as well as on the Checker Bits.

I hope I was able to inspire you with my creations the past 3 days and that you will check out the Blue Fern Studios website to see all the wonderful products they have to offer.
