A Cup of Spring {Bo Bunny's Enchanted Garden}


 
I'm so crazy about this beautiful collection 'Enchanted Garden', the whimsical color combinations in this one really appeal to me.  For this layout I did a bit of inking and spritzing and a fair bit of stamping.  For this page I created a video tutorial to show the layout being made step by step.  Enjoy!
 
 


Here are a few close-ups of the page elements....

 
I mixed and matched a few packs of the Bo Bunny blossoms to create my floral cluster and added a twine bow and some cheesecloth to finish the cluster.

 
I love whimsical look of the book paper with the butterfly specimens.  I also used some of the 6x6 paper pade to create a matting for my photo, ...a great way to paper save, I love not having to cut up a 12x12 paper for a bit of matting, don't you?

 
I used the new Bo Bunny Stitch stamps and washi tape for my corner interest on my page, and accented with some wood embellishments and trinkets. 

 
Another peek at some of the wood embellishments I added, tucked in around the photo frame. I also used a bit of Bo Bunny's smal size paper doily tucked in the edge.
 
Bo Bunny Product used in this project:
Patterned Paper: Fantasy, Mosaic, Spellbound, Periodical/Enchanted Garden
6x6 Paper Pad: Enchanted Garden
Combo Stickers: Enchanted Garden
Stamps: It Is Written Large Stamps, NEW Stitches Stamp Set, Distressed Textures Large Stamp, Stained Textures Large Stamp
Kraft Wood Shapes/Elegant

I hope you enjoyed watching the process on making this page and hope you will give this gorgeous collection a try for yourself!

Though I have been a reader and follower for years now, I rarely comment as I have nothing to add beyond another "that's awesome" "that's stunning" "that wonderful" "that's beautiful" "that's delightful" rave, which must get somewhat tiresome LOL.

However, I had to break my usual enjoy-and-run routine and say how really wonderfully beautiful and delightfully awesome this layout is ... truly enchanting and magical. Your manipulation of the paper is just in a class of its own.

I hope you never stop blogging - I wouldn't know where to go for my morning inspiration!

...now back to lurking!

I'm usually "quiet" too, and just enjoy your work. But I had to comment this time...this is a work of art!

I've watched this for the second time...and feel like I've watched an artist at work. Stunning!

Karen Hansen said...

Thanks for the tutorial. Love that you use clay in some of your other works, you have inspired me to play with that medium as well. You are a wonderfully creative artist . I am a therpist intern and cannot currently afford classes, art is my way of unwinding, so I truly appreciate your generosity in sharing some of your techniques and ideas!
