Blue Fern Studios November Sketch Challenge

November is upon us...And that only means 1 thing...The Blue Fern Studios November Sketch Challenge is here!!!!! And a beauty it is!!! It simply amazes me how the designers interpreted this same sketch, and came out with a vision of love for each one. Each one beautiful in its own right. I hope you join us for the month of November and create a project of your own!! I am looking forward to seeing what you do.

 I love the overall shape of the design in the sketch. I closed my eyes and envisioned this...Layers of flowers with vines here and there, and splashes of color!! I used the new Zip-A-Dee-Doodle papers from BoBunny. I fussy cut all of the flowers from 1 sheet of paper. I love the Doodle Flowers were a perfect match for the papers!!

The Blooming Flourish gives a nice balance to the point of the design. I dabbed it with Gesso and sprayed it with 2 different colors from The Industrial Chic set by Lindy's Stamp Gang created by my wonderful friend Limor Webber. She gifted me a set to play with, and I am in love with the gorgeous colors!!

 I treated all of the doodle flowers using the same technique I used on the Blooming Flourish.I also die cut the leaves from scraps of paper and sprayed them as well. I just tucked them here and there on the page.

 Here is a closeup view of one of the other Doodle Flowers.I even took one of the flowers, clipped it in half, and tucked the halves under the fussy cut flowers.

I adore the urban acronyms word set. You can use the innards which I did on another project. The positive and negative pieces all work beautifully!

The little bird cages in the Veranda Cage set are so darned sweet!!! I dabbed them with gesso using my finger then sprayed it and dried it with a heat gun. Once it was dried, I inked the edges to give it an aged look.

Here is close up of one of the other cages. 

I layers a couple of the BoBunny papers doing a tear out section following the design lines of the sketch.
