Bo Bunny ~ Focus on Flowers! & Some NEW Dusty Attic!!

I was so happy to be one of the DT girls asked to do the flower assignment for Bo Bunny!  As  most of you know I love to add blooms to my work and it was fun to make up a page that focused on pairing blooms with a Bo Bunny collection.  For my layout I used the crochetted bloom from the Bo Bunny Noel collection and then made up some shimmery/sheer aqua blooms using a trim strip from the  Bo Bunny Hooligan's collection.  I just love the feel of this trim, it is not stiff but actually a very soft pliable fabric strip and the shimmer is so pretty in real life!  All I did to make up these blooms is run a little slip stitch up one side to gather the blooms....easy peasy.  Then I glued a small circle of cardstock behind the bloom and put 3 pearl beads in the center of each flower.  For the large bloom I added a small aqua ruffle to bring all the blooms together.  The tiny white/aqua blooms were made with the small EK Success retro flower punch, I just lightly inked the center with some blue chalk ink and added an adheasive pearl from the Jewels package from the BB Gabrielle collection.   This layout was about how us Mom's often turn into the pack mule of the family.  My kids want to take with all sorts of things when we go on an outing....sunglasses, water bottles, camera's, sweaters, phones, blankets and yes! even their stuffed toys! ...and who ends up having to carry it?  Mom of course! lol!  Chloe took this pic of me on our last outing :)  Here are a few close-up pic's....




I also added some Dusty Attic embellishments to the page, the scroll design directly below the photo (Decorative Trim DA0435) and the Fancy Trim border DA0433 (top right corner).  I gave both pieces the Verdigris finish I shared over at Dusty Attic a little while back (to view the little tutorial on how to do a Verdigris (aged metal) finish just click on this link Verdigris Patina

I'm really excited to say that Dusty Attic has come out with some new designs!  Some of my favourites in the new releases are the Peacock Feathers, Topiaries and the Baroque Frame sets!  Can't wait to get my hot little hands on some of these gorgeous designs! (I hear they are on their way! yippee!!)  Here is a little peek at some of the new designs......

Stunning, as ever, Gabi! Love your herringbone stitching on the circle. It is SO good of you to
share with us all, your amazing talent! (p.s. ... take heart, at 71 and a Nanna to two precious grandbabies (5 & 7), I am still the pack-mule!).
