Need some new BoBunny papers??
Are you still scrapping with the "old" BoBunny papers? Not that there is anything wrong with that - I still have some fun, Calypso left...and once in a while I feel like scrapping summer photos just to warm up! (LOL)
However, if you want a chance at the newest BoBunny releases, which I honestly think is the best overall release yet, with lots of new products - hop over to the BoBunny blog, twitter and facebook for multiple chances to win one of the new collections! Of course I am partial to BoBunny - their style fits me to a "T", but I truly think the BoBunny release is better than any sneak peek I have seen. Today you may lose your breath when you see the beautiful purples and greens in Jazmyne. My personal favorite, Mama-Razzi, is a must for anyone who takes photos. And hey, picture taking is a part of what we do in order to preserve memories, right? I have so many ideas for this line!
A few thoughts on today's layout - "Lake Ripples". I used BoBunny's "Write On" acrylic stamp to add a border around the the photo. I used Staz-On Azure ink, and it does a wonderful drop of creating water motion. I also used pieces of Magistical Memories and BoBunny acrylic flourishes left from a previous project.
I misted the BoBunny acrylic letters with a mixture of white Perfect Pearls powder by Ranger, alcohol ink in Stream, and water. This was pre-mixed and on hand in a mini mister also offered by Tim Holtz's line of goodies. I wanted to bump up the blue, and had a bottle of blue dye ink on hand. I added some drops to intensify the color. I love the resulting look. On the opposite side of the mist I used my finger to dab on sparkle Mod Podge by Plaid. Finger dabbing avoids brushstrokes, and it is fun to peel off when dried. (LOL) We have my company's holiday party this weekend - I seriously am thinking of blinging my nails with sparkle Mod Podge. Why not?!
Sometimes cutting a subject from a photo just WORKS. Here it definitely does as it makes it look as though he is riding the waves, tucked in behind a wave. The oars are raised, as is Kyle, with foam adhesive.
Journaling strips in yellow help create a visual triangle to give balance to the layout.
I wanted a fish to go with my journaling, and add a fun accent piece to the layout. I used Cosmo Crickets Snorkel chipboard sheet as a template...at one time there was a fish, but it has long since been utilized. Using a pencil I traced the fish shape onto lemon Double Dot Cardstock, cut it out and blinged with sparkle Mod Podge. I also added a BoBunny googly eye. Way cute!
It would be so fun if one of my blog readers is a winner in the BoBunny new release give aways. If you win, be sure to stop back and let me know. I cannot wait for the new product to arrive on my doorstep in a few weeks. I plan to offer a giveaway here before Valentine's day and share the love!
