My Boy Brendon

The Friday Sketch Challenge on the BoBunny Blog April 23rd was used to create this layout of my grandson Brendon. We had professional pictures taken just before Easter by Perfect Prints Photography and so I decided to use one of those for this page. I used the Flutter Butter Collection by Bo Bunny including several of the papers and brads. Also, from BoBunny was the double dot paper and the ribbon.

I also used the Harmony clear stamp set by BoBunny to create my own paper. I started with a cream cardstock and stamped the large circles with chestnut roan ink, the small circles with yellow ochre ink, and the smaller flowers with olive pastel ink. I chose to stamp the images randomly to create the background paper. I really like the way it turned out.

Each flower was made differently. The first is punched from the handmade background paper, layered with a green punched flower and a large brad was placed in the center. For the second flower I punched a large brown circle, added a stamped circle I had punched, and then added a large brad to it's center. The final flower is two flowers layered on top of one another with a smaller punched stamped circle in yellow ochre, and a small brad was added to the center. The butterfly was made by stamping two images, adding watercolor to the smaller sections of the wings and then layered slightly ascue with foam dots for dimension.

I am also entering this into the Paper Secrets Supply Challenge which was to use stamped images (3 or more) on a layout and the Trends & Techniques challenge to add dimension from A Cherry on Top. Well, talk about a great deal that's 3 challenges from 1 layout!
