May Projects by Vera Shelemekh

Hello Blue Fern Studios fans! 
Vera Shelemekh is here. Today is my turn to inspire you with the amazing Happy Accident collection. The self adhesive chipboards are absolutely gorgeous, aren't they? So easy to adhere and fun to play with!

My first layout is telling a summertime story. I even see the sun rays  shining from the right upper corner). I used Happy Accident - Incident paper for the background and a couple of pieces from the self adhesive chipboards set.

Graduated Circles and Chelsea Vines chipboards are covered with acrylic paint and some Mermaid glitter.

I love the combination of bright yellow and blue bubbles and flowers and watercolor birds from the Owls and birds stamps set.

And here is my video tutorial showing how to make this layout. I hope you will find it useful.
