The Scrapbook Store Bo Bunny Secret Garden - More Than Words April Challenge

Hi everyone.

A new month with new projects created for The Scrapbook Store!!  This month I am creating with the new Bo Bunny 'Secret Garden' Collection - a beautiful range in lilac, blue, soft pinks and hints of green with a garden theme full of pretty florals, patterns and the sweetest little birds.

Enjoy the Journey
For this layout I was inspired by this month's Challenge at More Than Words Challenge Site.  Pop in to the 'More Than Words blog for details and challenge rules and while you're there, check out the gorgeous creations from the super talented Design Team and prepare to be inspired!!

I was drawn to the  'Greenhouse' pp which has all these lovely patterned circles in pretty colours and different sizes.  To make the circles pop I stamped around them with various circle stamps, then fussy cut around them.  Keeping to the circle theme, I added some cute Doodlebug lilac mist enamel sprinkles and a gorgeous Blue Fern Chipboard small circle flourish to frame my photo.

I have used foam tape to create depth when overlapping the circles, then added a few Green Tara mini blossoms and TSS mini flowers here and there.

Tip:  If you want to recreate this look but don't have circle stamps you could use different sized bottle caps and lids with black mist or watered down black paint to make the circles pop.

To create the background I stenciled with  the Tim Holtz bubble stencil and ink, then stamped over the top with the new Blue Fern Brocade Flourish stamp in sky blue Ranger archival ink, and to create an overall softness I flicked with Pink Ladies Pink Lindys Stamp Gang mist, dried off then flicked with White Kaiser Mist.

The beautiful Blue Fern Chipboard flourish frame was altered by first coating with gesso, then once dry, inking in green and purple inks - inks are listed below
