So a few weeks back I got my design team box from Bo Bunny. I'm always excited to rip this box open and yep! this was the view right at the top of the box! All the newest Bo Bunny blooms!!!! I am super excited that Bo Bunny is now making blooms to coordinate with their beautiful collections! And they are not some simple blooms! They are layered, embossed, crochetted, blinged up and have a lovely color graduation....blooms that I'm so excited to start using in my layouts!
For this layout I wanted to use a variety of the blooms, everything from the paper blooms, crochetted blooms, tattered fabric and ribbon blooms. I really love the gentle greens in these blooms so I chose some papers from the Bo Bunny's New Apple Cider collection and then added some coordinating cardstock.
TIP: Choosing a limited or monochromatic color base helps make a layout look more cohesive and 'put together'. Here I chose a couple of the patterned papers from the Apple Cider collection that had the soft greens/yellows in them and added in a piece of Double dot paper in a neutral tone (Almond Dot). Then I chose my floral embellishments in the same shades (greens/butter yellows). I find this also helps me when chosing what embellishments to use on a page.
Here's a close-up look at the blooms, I'm just loving the center gem in the tattered green bloom!
TIP: I created a unique title by using a word stamp "Cherish" (this is an old Heidi Swapp stamp I had)....then I used a complimentary color of DMC floss to hand stitch over the stamped lines to create a hand-stitched title.
I also used a couple of Dusty Attic chippies to dress up this page, the Vine Border, the Chicken Wire Panel and the new Bird Houses. Here is a full list of the products I used on this page....
