Patter Cross with a Sketch, and Blue Fern Studios

I want to welcome and thank Patter Cross from Triple the Scraps blog.  Patter is an incredibly talented crafter, creates some of the best challenges, and is a wonderful person.  I believe I've been following Patter's Blog the longest of all blogs.

Patter is on the Blue Fern Studios design team.  Their products are incredible and I just received my first order of their chipboard (lots, but not enough ... LOL).  I have never seen anything as beautiful.  They are a must check out company.

Welcome Patter with the very first Blue Fern Studios monthly Sketch challenge.  (This post can be seen on Triple the Scraps...posted with Patter's and Blue Fern Studios blessing...thanks).  I plan on taking the challenge.  I hope to see you there.

We are starting something new at Blue Fern Studios (chipboard manufacturer). We will be having a sketch challenge each month with a prize to go along with it! Today I will share my the sketch and my creation. For complete details and to enter the sketch challenge, please see the Blue Fern Studios blog post here! I hope you will join us and play along! Now for the sketch.

April's Sketch

Isn't it stunning? This month's sketch uses the Blue Fern Studios Floral Clock chipboard. You can see purchase and see complete details on the Floral Clock by clicking here

My Creation
As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I had to put it to good use right away! I decided to make a new prayer journal.
Pin It
Papers: Blue Fern Studios packaging 
Stamp Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink tumbled glass 
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Spiritually Speaking, Floral Clock (both painted with gesso) 
Embellishments: Melissa Frances resin cross, Prima Corine and solitare jewel tone flowers, Prima Sunrise Sunset stickers, Manor House Creations log cabin flower, leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts, hand-dyed Hug Snug, My Mind's Eye Happy Days wood banner, sewing machine 

I used the Floral Clock chipboard and the Spiritually Speaking set. I also recycled the Blue Fern packaging and used it for the patterned paper on my journal. I didn't do anything special with the chipboard for this book. I just painted each piece in white gesso since I wanted them to be white on my book.

I hope you enjoyed my journal. Now it's your turn to play. Jump on over to the Blue Fern Studios blog, see the prize package, and how to join in the fun! You have until April 30th to get your creation entered! :) The other designers creations are also in the post so you will see lots of inspiration! Thanks for joining me today. Blessings,
