For this layout I used some papers and chipboard by Blue Fern Studios.
And various dies.
The fern die cuts were cut from a piece of Maja Design paper (the rest using the Blue Fern papers). As usual I layered all the diecuts over a darker copy, offsetting the layers to emphasize the edges.

For the Jasmine Collage and Tattered Diamond Bits chipboard I dabbed on thick gesso with a sponge brush, rubbed Iced Spruce Distress Ink over top and creamy brown Colorbox chalk ink around the edges with a craft nib.
To make the Tattered Diamond Bits stand out more I used some watercolour pencils in green and grey around them.
The centers of the little red flowers were made by putting a drop of Judikins Diamond Glaze in the center and pouring copper microbeads overtop.
The Symphony Border and Corners were painted black, coated with Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint, then rubbed with the Iced Spruce ink and edged with charcoal chalk ink.
I dipped the stiff pink twine in water to soften it, arranged it into loose curves and let it dry before gluing it onto the layout.
The tiny white flowers were picked off a dollar-store floral stem I bought years ago when I used to make topiaries and flower arrangements (habitats) for my Cicely Mary Barker Flower Fairy ornament collection.
Thanks so much for looking!
