Inspired By

The Bo Bunny designers were asked to create a project inspired by this image found on Pinterest.

Here is how they were inspired:
Juliana notes, "I was inspired by the colors in the pillow and the circles reminded me of flowers. I cut out the branch, bird and flower images from the Squiggles Paper and then layered some of the Dimensional stickers on it for more depth and interest."

Love | Juliana Michaels

Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Stitches, Burst and Squiggles/Alora
Stickers: Alora Dimensional and Combo Stickers
Buttons: Alora
Chipboard: Alora 12 x 12 and Layered Chipboard

Designer Tip:
For this layout, Juliana cut out the branch and flower image from the Alora Squiggles paper and then added dimension by layering the Alora Dimensional stickers over matching flowers on the branch.  If you want to create more "dimensional" stickers, cut out images from your patterned papers and layer them.  Dress them up with jewels or even glitter glue if desired.

Patterned Paper: Hello Sunshine, Breezy, Cut Outs, Busy Bee/ Hello Sunshine

Designer tip: When working with alphas that blend into your background, I take a black fine tip marker and outline the alphas to make them stand out more!

Debbie shared that, "When I saw this photo I knew that I wanted to create a layout highlighting the circular elements. I created some small lollies and used them as the background of some of the flowers. To continue with the circular elements I used a die cut doily to keep your eye moving around the layout."
