So today is a bitter-sweet post for me....as many of you know, I've been on the BoBunny Design team for over 5 years now and it's been such a joy working with all their beautiful products! This today is my last post for the BoBunny design team as I've decided to take a little break and step down from the team. Sometimes it's nice to just take a little breather, so I've been making a few changes this summer. It's nice to have a little more family time over the summer months and maybe a little 'me' time to do a little designing and playing with my art supplies. .....No worries for those of you who follow my blog, I will still be doing plenty of projects and sharing them here, but it will be at a more relaxed pace, creating on my own time.
I found this shabby-chic looking printer's tray at Michaels by 7 Gypsies (half price!!), I thought the white background would work nicely with the fresh designs and colors in the Bo Bunny Boardwalk collection. The starfish is again cut from an image in the BoBunny papers, I gave it a little 3D look by lightly misting the design with water and then pushing the hand of my mini scissors into the design (in the palm of my hand).....same with the shell. The title is a new chippie by Dusty Attic as are the two lil corner scrolls, the chain, screw and seagull chippies. (the title shows up better against the soft aqua paint in my laundry room).
I totally love this lighthouse image, prominent in the designs of the Boardwalk collection. Here I just cut it out and again gave the paper a little curve to give it a 3D look. I added some pieces of the coordinating chipboard to this collection (I've always loved their layered chipboard designs, like that glittery ships wheel that I linked with the chain link design. (I gave the chain link chippie a bit of realistic metal look by using some of BoBunny's Chocolate Pearlescents on it). And finished the design with a little nest in the corner....hey, there's a seagull so I figured a nest would be fitting (even though the eggs are more like Robins eggs, LOL).
Here's a pic of the piece sitting on the shelf in my laundry room.....I take a deep breath and feel peaceful just looking at it....even though I might be toiling away doing laundry :)
