I Am Grateful Layout Tutorial by Agnieszka

Today, we have a wonderful tutorial by one of our new BoBunny design team members, Agnieszka. She used the gorgeous The Avenues collection along with some fantastic mixed media techniques to create a beautiful layout about her daughter.

Here is what Agnieszka had to say about her layout and working with The Avenues collection:
"Every now and again I buy a dress for my girl because I think I will like a photo of her wearing it. This time when I was buying THIS dress I had no idea about The Avenues. I loved this collection from the very first moment I saw it and I know already that many of you love it too. Her dress and this collection go together perfectly, so no wonder I could not wait to scrap this photo with THIS collection."

"The Avenues collection is so easy to work with because all the elements are so pretty and they go together perfectly. You can easily use it to create any type of project from layouts to OTP projects.  I love the colors, birds, bird cages, flowers, bling, and beautiful shades of blue that make up this collection. I then added some personal touches such as stitching, mist and gesso to help make The Avenues such a lovable collection."

Then I fussy cut elements from different papers and added rubs-on. I also used some of the new stamps with embossing powder.
