You know how some collections just seem to work well together? Well, I think Bo Bunny's new Zoology and their Timepiece collection is one of those! Today's assignment at Bo Bunny was to do a project combining the two collections and let me say, they both just layered together so easily! I was excited to get my first stab at working with the new Zoology collection, I just love the earthy colors in this one!. I had sent out a bunch of animal photos my husband had taken when he went on a class trip to the African Lion Safari with Meagan when she was in Junior Kindergarten......and then somehow this photo of Chloe called out to me instread lol! It's a photo I took of her a couple years back, she found out there were some Cardinals nesting in a tree at the side of the house so she grabbed her daddy's ladder and had to get herself a peek, ...I dashed into the house and caught the curious little monkey on film :)
I had a lot of fun playing with a new toy I picked up at an awesome local scrapstore Fovever Scrapbooks in Burlington Ontario (for you fellow Ontarion residents)....it's Spellbinders Rose Creations die cut petals. It works really well with my Revolution Die cutter, who knew! I cut a bunch of different size flower shapes out of one of the patterned 6x6 paper pad pieces from the Zoology & Timepiece collections to make the blooms. (I am still experimenting with different ways to use these pieces and will do a tutorial soon on the types of blooms that can be made with it) Here are some close up pic's of this layout....
Other than the Zoology & Timepiece goodies, I also added a few cute new piece's of my favourite laser cut chippies from Dusty Attic (the new Topiaries, the Ferns and Leafy Vines) ....I painted the Topiary all white, then I simply used some chalk inks in green and terracotta colors to color up the piece. For the pot I just rubbed on the ink over the edges, pressing a little more firmly on the outer edges so it fades in.....for the lip in the pot, I just ran the edge of my ink pad in a line across the piece a few times. Same for the tree part, using green ink just press more firmly and go over the edges a few times to give the piece a more 'rounded' effect.
Here is a list of the supplies I used to make up this page:
