Soft & Feminine with NEW Bo Bunny Primrose Collection!!



I'm so happy  to share with you my layout using the gorgeous new Primrose collection!  As soon as I laid eyes on this collection, I had so many design ideas whirling through my head. So many beautiful elements to create with.  I've been wanting to do a pretty soft feminine page design for this photo of my nephew's bride....there are always so many pretty details in a wedding and I just loved this photo that showed off her hair and bouquet.

 
The first thing I did when I got my collection was sit down with a few of the patterned papers (while watching TV) and fussy cut the butterflies and labels from the Bliss and Garden papers.  This way I was ready to roll when I started in on my layouts.  I also went a little crazy with the new Washi Tapes!  I used a whole bunch of strips to outline the framework of my background paper, then added random strips here and there as finishing touches. Another design element I used on this page is the Dusty Attic 'Leafy Scroll' which I painted with some Dusty In Color Paints.  (You can find Dusty Attic chippies at Natasha's website HERE )

 
I wanted to go for an artsy/mixed media style background on this one, so I used lots of Bo Bunny texture and background stamps along with inks and texture paste.  The small pink blooms where made from one of the patterned papers using a flower die.  I wrote part of the title on my photo using a white Signo Unibal gel pen, this one writes very well on photos.
 
Bo Bunny Product used:
Patterned Paper: Bliss, Garden, Gate, Breath-taking, Memories/Primrose
Buttons: Primrose
Washi Tape: Primrose, Modern Miss, Black and White
Stamps:  Distressed Textures, It is Written, On this Day, Mama-razzi 2
