Step It Up!

Are you interested in how to take a layout from simple to fabulous?  Today, Bo Bunny designers, Luzma and Michele share in detail how they each  a simple layout and took it to another level of design by adding more embellishments and ink/glimmer.

Luzma began with patterned papers, cardstock and a few embellishments.  She also did some gorgeous cut work to create that large circle piece and used a punch to create a fancy frame for her photos.
Next she brought more detail to her layout by adding a few colored embellishments.
She then completed the layout by adding more embellishment clusters including flowers, chipboard and bling. The placement of each cluster helps to move the eye through the layout in a pleasing manner and helps maintain your focus on her lovely photo.

Michele began with a combination of patterned papers and cardstock.  She also did a bit of cut work to frame her photo and cut strips from a variety of papers to create a series of fun borders.
Next, she added some paint and glimmer which add a nice distressed feel.
Then she added a her title and created a fun edge for her photo by gathering some ribbon.
Finally, she completed her layout by adding more embellishments such as cardstock stickers, trinkets and jewels.  Look at the placement of the green and pink embellishments.  They are placed in a triangle, which again helps to keep the focus on her beautiful photo.
