Getting Messy with NEW Bo Bunny {Pincushion Collection}


 
I just love this photo of my DH Steve and our youngest daughter Meagan (taken a few years ago)....she's always been Daddy's girl, always seen skipping along beside him, ....and yes! the little bouquet of rag-weed (Goldenrod) in her hand was picked for her Daddy! lol!  
 
I thought I'd have a little fun with this page and get messy!  I really love the fun Toile designs in this new Bo Bunny collection so I used the one above as the base of my page.  I wanted the design to be a little less busy in the center of the page where I would be adhering my photo and embellishments so first I gave the page as soft wash (dry brushing) with some white Gesso....fading out the gesso as I move out to the edges.
 
 
I then started layering on some colors sprays in coordinating colors and layered on some stamp designs with a variety of stamps (I've listed the Bo Bunny Stamps I've used below).
 
 
I made the rose using one of the floral papers in the Pincushion collection with a flower die cut. And the li'l dried floral cluster is another one of Lucy's cute little embellishments from her Etsy shop called Tresor's de Luxe!   When my page was done, I did a little dry brushing with some aqua paint, dabbing here and there to bring in an extra color value.

I just love how you made these papers your own and created a rather messy look with them. This lay-out is awesome!
