Bo Bunny Beautiful
This week marks the start of my new career and I am so excited to be working for the Scrapbook Superstore in Madison, Wisconsin. I have spent the past two mornings creating layouts for store display – using some of the new products recently in.
Today I want to show you a layout using Bo Bunny’s “Beautiful Life” line. Because the paper is so artistic and beautiful I kept this layout simple to really let the paper shine, and used a single photo with small subject. I cut the paper design to overlap the photo – which emphasizes that she is walking along at the park kicking up leaves.
The papers are 2-sided, and finding this ruled design on one I knew it would work great for a journaling block. I used letter stickers and created my own “itty bitty” letter stickers printing my quote on white cardstock with a space between each letter. I cut out each, inked the edges and positioned – overlapping some of the larger letter stickers. I need to start stocking up on those itty bitty letters because this took me a long time. (Ok – I admit I had hand-written my journaling and I did not like my letter “g” in the last line I wrote – so this was my cover up which gives the layout a much more interesting look. Not all flubs are bad. (LOL)
A chipboard leave from Magistical Memories enhances the fall theme. I used DecoArt wood finish crackle medium on it, and edged and accented with Krylon’s fine tip gold paint marker. The title letters were simply covered in the patterned paper and raffia was tied on – the crunch of raffia reminds me of the crunch of fall leaves underfoot. Remember as you take your fall walks to get behind your kids and take those shots from behind – they often turn out to be some of my favorite photos to scrap.
You may have noticed the use of Fiskars Threading Water border punch. Don’t forget you have until September 15 to comment on the “Dream Come True” several threads below, and be entered into a drawing to win the punch and some other goodies. Thanks for coming by – I know I am going to enjoy the new path in my journey and hope you will visit often to see what I am creating.
