Everday Pages with Bo Bunny's Safari Collection


Hello my friends! I'm sharing with you today my latest layout using Bo Bunny's Safari collection and featuring their brilliant Aqua Jewels!  ...So, you bought the Safari collection to scrap all those photos you took with the kids at the Zoo or on a special vacation.  But now you've got some leftover paper. What I love about Bo Bunny's themed collections is that they can be used for everyday photos as well!  I was just crazy about these grungy wall papers, so I started with these as my base for this page of my dear husband and me.

I took the grunge look a little further by tearing out sections of the turquoise wall paper and exposing the aged brick paper behind it. Before I glued it together I sandwiched some tattered cheesecloth between the layers.  I used the Chocolate to add 'rivets' to the edges of the paper.

I began creating a background for my photo area by first dry brushing some Gesso on the area, then I used the NEW Cascade stickable stencil with some texture paste on the same area.  Then I added some richness to the design by adding a bunch of the small gems from the Aqua Jewels pack at the cross sections of the Moroccan.design.

I tucked a wood piece from the Ironworks Wood designs package behind the photo, removing the center disc (to be used in my floral cluster - below), and then filled the cavity with a variety of gems from the Aqua Jewels packet.

Finally, I wanted some rustic looking blooms for this page so I used a daisy floral punch on some neutral color papers from a 6x6 paper pad from the Heritage collection.  I layered a few of the punched blooms and added a circle of burlap to the center.
