Beautiful Bo Bunny Petals!!


Among the many beautiful things Bo Bunny brought out at the last CHA, I think the new Petals must be among my favourite!! For the above l/o I used the amazing Charcoal Knit Petals....just the name alone evokes this warm cozy feeling, and they are so soft and pretty. I thought they'd be the perfect accent for this father/daughter page I wanted to make up of Steve & Meagan. Yes, they are flowers on a masculine l/o but I think the style of the blooms can work well with a masculine page lol!! The papers I used are from the Cambridge collection (I'm so crazy for this collection!!)

I also did some layered masking on one of the text papers from Bo Bunny. I shared this Designer's Tip at the Bo Bunny Blog today:

Designers Tip: I just love a nice piece of 'journal or text' paper like the Cambrige 'Post' paper. I like to use it for all sorts of things. On this page I punched blooms from it and tinted them with a little ink (I'll be posting a tutorial on making blooms coming up this month at the BB blog)....and I like to change up a neutral paper like this with a little ink and masking. For my circle design on this page, I cut a circular piece of the 'Post' paper. I then cut out a few floral designs with my die cutter. You can use a flower punch or even hand-cut a simple flower design for this. The grass I just cut from some plain white paper with scissors. I attached it to the paper with some movable sticky tape. Then just dabbed on a variety of chalk inks. Here I used a dark brown & green chalk ink. I then removed the pieces of paper (discarded them)and I'm left with the floral design. To dress it up a little more I lightly brushed the flower design with some Wheat color chalk ink and some Rose color ink....and the leaves with a touch of bright green. Don't worry about being exact, the colours melding into each other gives the piece a nice water-color effect.

Here are a few close-ups of the Charcoal Knit Petals, the handmade blooms and the pretty BB trims (the gold trim is from the Noel collection)....




Shhhh! I have been doing a whole lot more playing with the BoBunny Petals and have some fun projects coming up to share with you all!.....in the meantime checkout the other l/o's & projects the rest of the talented girls on the BB team came up with on todays Bo Bunny blog, you'll come away inspired!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
