Patience of a Snail - Blue Fern Studios

This is my interpretation of Blue Fern Studios September challenge.  Their sketches are some of the best sketches as you can make them simple or artsy.

This is Little patiently waiting for a snail to emerge from it's shell.  She was willing to wait as long as it takes.  She is really into bugs and such right now.  She has a little splash pool type item for bigger bugs and a little bug playground mom bought for her.  She will pick up snails, bugs, but her favorite are lizards (that's for another layout!).

  • paint chipboard with gesso 
  • paint with Ranger's paint dauber
  • use Ranger's glossy accent and add to chipboard then spread with your finger
  • add plenty of Stampenous glass glitter
  • after it is completely dry use a paper towel to go over the glittered chipboard and remove glitter that is not strongly glued to the chipboard
  • It really took away the look of too much glitter.
  • using TWC stencil randomly adding modeling paste making sure to use a tool that will help you get the modeling paste smooth on top....(a specialize spreader or an old credit card type item....I use those cards that businesses send in the mail to get me to sign up for something)
  • add Tim Holtz's distress stain
  • That's it!
  • measure the area that you want the tape and paper to begin and end
  • cut Blue Fern Studios pattern paper and Tim Holt's paper tape to proper length
  • adhere it to the background paper and adhere your Blue Fern Studios chipboard
  • if you get some hang over on the right side of your circle use X-ACTO knife to gently cut it away
  • I loved doing this!
