June Sketch Layout – Bo Bunny Weekend Market

Moments Like These is the Forum sketch layout for this month and is an arty, feminine layout using Bo Bunny’s Weekend Market. I’ll be showcasing a few masculine layouts using this range a little later in the week – but they’re designed along more formal lines than this layout.

Lol – no – she has not suddenly turned into a brunette – this is the photoshopping style I have been using for my sons’ photos recently – love the whole teen moodiness of it – and out of curiosity I tried it on a couple of photos of Madame. I really liked the edginess it gave this particular photo and had to scrap it like this.

There is almost a blue tint to the photo and it just screamed to be used with Weekend Market, with a focus on the darker blue elements of the range.

This time the base paper is the gorgeous Tapestry. I was actually so happy with the way the paint splatters went, that I found it hard to add any other patterned papers – finally I worked out a way to add a strip of Stripe ; a punched section of the reverse of Vintage Label; and sections of a die cut element from the reverse side of Cut Outs. But that was pretty much it – this is definitely a ‘less is more’ design. Unlike the straight edges of my boy layouts with this range – this one has had all edges distressed with a Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser.


The title is by WOW and comes from Scrapping Outback – though it is sadly out of stock now. Like the other chipboard on the layout – Dusty Attic Wrought Iron Trim Set  and Dusty Attic Mini Chandelier,  it has been given a coat of Vintage Photo Distress Ink (and speckles of Aged Mahogany) and then one of Crystallina Kindyglitz and whilst both are wet, it has been dried under a heat gun.

The paint splodges are actually ink – Vintage Photo Distress Stain and the splatters are All that Jazz Glimmerglaze and Blue Suede Shoes Glimmerglam (both by Tattered Angels).

Here and there you can see randomly added amber and blue rhinestones from the Weekend Market Jewels Pack, along with some clear cabochons I altered with a smear of Blue Suede Shoes Glimmerglam added to the base of the cabochon.


 The Dusty Attic Heart Flourish was treated the same as the other chipboard and then decorated with rhinestones from the Weekend Market Jewels Pack.

I used an oval trinket from the Weekend Market Trinkets Collection to embellish this chipboard piece at the top of the layout. Added to the trinket are some pearl dangles and a cute little butterfly charm from my stash.

I trimmed the top and bottom from the die cut element (from the reverse side of Cut Outs) and only used those – popping them on either side of the photo and keeping the middle bit to use somewhere else. The original piece was not wide enough for the photo without doing this. 

 The journalling is on a tag hidden behind the photo. So you can pull the tag out easily, I added a bit of crinkled seam binding coloured with Blue Suede Shoes Glimmerglam and finished it off with a small butterfly and pearl charm dangle.

 Underneath the photo I added 2 of the gorgeous flowers from the Prima Kennedy – Blueberry pack. They match the blues in the layout perfectly.
