I heart snow

Here is one of 3 pages that I did as guest designer at A Trip Down Memory Lane this month.  The galleries focus is on BoBunny papers and I was sent the beautiful Serenity collection.  The papers are based on Chinese designs with lots of Cherry Blossom, and the colours are really rich (I particularly like the turquoise blue paper - it's beautiful).  Despite the papers being very Spring like I decided to show that you could use them on any occasion so I choose one of my snow photos as the colours in my son's hat go really well with the red in the papers.

For this page I kept the photo very central and I layered up lots of snippets of the different papers behind the photo, inking and distressing the edges.  I cut out a banner at the base which I stitched and placed the title on.  I'm also enjoying adding strips to the top and bottom of my pages with little decorations, so I stitched some on.  I punched lots of snowflakes out of a glassine bag, and then lightly stuck them on with repositional glue, once I had done this I stitched through them to hold them in place.  The final additions were my stamped title and some blue and red flicks of cosmic shimmer.

The gallery is packed with fantastic projects using other ranges from BoBunny so if you would like some inspiration click here and there is a sketch challenge on the blog too...I'll be back with a page that I made on that too :)
