Whoo Hoo – another kit. Working with the gorgeous Bo Bunny (again) – this time the stunning Teen Chic range. There will be a boy kit in upcoming weeks – so keep an eye out for that.
Loving the colours – black, lime green and pink. Bo Bunny have put out some lovely stuff and the new ranges coming out from CHA are just to die for. Can’t wait to get my hands on them.
The kit is just stuffed full of goodies for you to use. All 5 papers in the range, several sheets of cardstock, a gorgeous Maya Road 12 x 12 Sheer and some journalling sheers, chipboard shapes and alphas, various ribbons, Green Tara flowers and Kaisercraft bling (rhinestones and mixed rhinestones). All for the very reasonable price of $29.99. So run in to 123 and gets yours now – whilst they still last. The Moody Blues kits did not last long last month and I don’t expect this one to either.
For the first layout from the kit I had to play with the papers – cutting out the flower shapes and layering them together. The colours were so bright and funky I had to do something a little different with the layout – so one edge of one side was cut off with my trusty scallop cutter and the other side of the layout was scalloped completely down. The not square look is a little odd to look at when you first look at it – but it grows on you. Lol – least I hope it does.
Used lots of layered edges – all the bright colours were just great together. A little kindyglitz here and there to make bits ‘pop’ and lots of the new Kaisercraft Mixed Rhinestones for added sparkle. It’s great that they have brought these new ones – you can mix up all the sizes now and still have them in the same colours.
I used my white gel pen to continue some of the flourishes on the paper and then went over them with the kindyglitz. It made them really stand out and helped to tie all the bits together across the layers of paper and the photo. The chipboard has been painted with Kaiser Hot Pink paint and then inked with the new Bo Bunny clear stamps – the ones that come in the cute little CD case. I actually used the flourish/journalling stamp – you can see that some of the journalling lines have transferred to the chipboard too.
Love the photo – it’s one of the ones from the hula skirt session. And not a perfect one either – under that huge hot pink flower is a very blurred hand. Hiding it like that allows me to use that gorgeous facial shot without the ugly blurry bit. She takes such huge delight in such small things – like any toddler – a shame that many kids lose this as they get older.
The second layout is one that I have been thinking about for a while now. I recently saw a gorgeous layout using the CI Holey Cardstock that fellow DT member Karlene did and had to merge her idea with mine. And this is the result. Very little embellishment – mostly paper behind the Maya Road 12 x 12 sheer providing the interest factor.
The black sheer contrasting against the hot pink and white is just stunning. I’ve cut the plastic a little here and there to tuck the photo matt under a little – but otherwise left both the paper and the sheer alone. It was so hard to do the minimalist embellishments though. Just the odd Kaiser hot pink gem here and there and the one poor Green Tara flower with a single chippie curve. It takes me soooo long to convince myself it is done and finished when there is not much there.
The title was fun. Inked this time to match the reddish pink tones in the paper swirls and then edged in white gel pen to again match the paper swirls. Top-coated with kindyglitz – which I also applied to the paper swirls. Sounds simple, but it was a bit of a cow to do, as the gel pen blended with the ink a little rather than sitting clear and white on the top. I had tried inking it with white first but that was even worse. Love the final result though.
The photo is pure Madame. Not usually one for photos – this was her first professional session since she was a tiny baby. But she took to it like a natural. After watching her brothers being posed she plopped herself down on the couch on her tummy and demanded ‘diva’ shots – clad only in a huge pink hat, pink pearls and lots and lots of pink feathers (oh – plus undies of course). What a hoot. Never does it for me. 😦
And I used those rubons again – just so yummy. Must go find some more I think – if I can remember who on earth I got them from in the first place.
So grab a kit whilst they are there and have some Bo Bunny fun. Would love to see your layouts posted up in the gallery at 123.
