Blue Fern Studios "Happy Accident" Mini Album Reneabouquets Design Team Project

Hi All you creative people!   I've made up a mini album using Blue Fern Studios "Happy Accident" papers.  These papers are so pretty and so versatile I LOVED using them.  I think the "Happy Accident" theme is so fun, and inspirational, I just had to name the mini "Such a Delight!"

My Boys - Terry Nelson - USA

I made up another lay out for CSI: ( Color, Stories, Inspiration)
This one is for the second Case File of the month No. 230 

These are my two sons at my oldest sons wedding.  I just love this photo of them all dressed up in front of the fabulous view.  They are grown men now but forever they will be my boys.  😊

Here is how I solved the case...

Scheme: All the colors, 
lavender, off-white, light sage green, gray, light blue, sort of a cadet blue ...Check
Evidence :
I have Flowers, stars, metal and rhinestones. ...Check

Testimony / Topic:

Journal about a road trip or a group gathering.  and I tucked my journaling tag behind the layers of the center (photo)

I really wanted to use this photo, even though the lavender color isn't usually considered masculine.  So I minimized the lavender.  But I like how the small touches of it look on the page. 
I have used Maja Designs "Vintage Summer Basics" papers, Prima "Craftsman" papers, and even a piece of Anna Griffin paper (The lavender piece in the layers at the photo).
I punched spots of the background paper with a matha stewart punch.  Distressed all the paper edges even the photo.  I have painted and textured chipboard (the circle frame, gears and stars).  I have some metal gears.   I muted the colors of the flowers with gesso. Mixed up a bunch of different beads and some old rhinestone beads.  Added silver micro beads
To me it has a masculine feel but the light colors accent the spacious openness of the view behind my boys. 
It's fun to work with the CSI challenges, and get my pictures on some lay outs for a change.

Thank you for taking a look! ❤️

Fun in the water - Terry Nelson - USA

Here is the lay out I created for CSI: ( Color, Stories, Inspiration)
Major Case File No. 229  May Challenge

These pictures are of my grandson playing in the water with his grandpa.
They are a couple of years old, taken in 2014.

Here is how I solved the case...

Scheme: All the colors...Check
Evidence :
I have Stripes, Flowers, and Something loopy. ...Check

Testimony / Topic:

Fun in the water

Pemigewasset river,
Hobbit Hill Farm"
I used Maja Designs "Crea Diem" for background papers.  

I gessoed some circles by actually banging the almost empty gesso bottle on the paper.  I was trying to get more out and it looked cool so I just banged it here there and every where. 
Then I used modeling paste, stamps.  I die cut the flourishes in teal and white then used clear embossing powder on them.  They are supposed to look like splashes. 
I painted the wooden fish gray, and added some detail.
The topic was created in photo shop and printed from my computer.

So happy with the way it turned out. ❤️
Thank you for taking a look

Queen of The Forest - Terry Nelson - USA

I thought I'd try one of the CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration challenges.  
It was just what I needed to get my mojo moving on scraping some photo's in layouts for a change.   

Major Case File No. 227

Here is how I solved the case...

Scheme: All the colors...Check
Evidence :
I have flowers, wood, and cheese cloth as fabric. ...Check


"Kitty has walked in the woods with
us since she was a kitten.
Usually trailing along behind, last in line. 
Every once in a while, 

In a mad Kitty dash she unexpectedly
grabs a leg then climbs up a tree."

 I just realized it might sound like Kitty grabs a leg and takes it with her up a  But actually she just grabs, lets go, then climbs up a tree. 😜

I picked out 2 pictures of my Kitty.  Yep, her name is actually "Kitty".   I used some leftover Pion Design's "The Songbird's Secret" papers.

I used texture paste and a stencils.  I colored some texture paste with vintage photo ink and used a Loin King stencil to get the little foot prints.

I created the title and the journaling text in photo shop, printing them out and then die cut "Queen". Inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink.
I used an embossing folder on the green paper in the center.

I sprayed with Lindy's "Aloha Avocado". It was the closest color I had to pale olive green.   I splattered with orange acrylic paint.

I have a wood crown from Prima, and a round wood compass from Kisercraft

I really like how it came out.  I'll defiantly be trying out some more new case files. 
Thank you for stopping by!!!  ❤️

Altered wood train for Easter. "Easter Express"

Sharing the little Easter Express engine I altered for my grandson who looooves trains. I bought a wood engine for about $3 at Walmart. Used some paper clay to sculpt the face right on to the front. Made some ears from felt. Painted with metallic blue acrylic paint, added details with white and black paint. Made up the "Easter Express" sign and the egg border in photo shop to stick on the side. Finished off with a pompom tail. I don't know how long it will last with rough play, but I hope it is a cute surprise for him.
