Carousel Christmas MIxed Media Layout-with Denise

Hello BoBunny Fans

It's Denise here today, with a mixed media layout, using the Christmas Carousel collection.

I kept the background fairly simple here.  To start, I just used some Mandala stencils with some Gesso to add to the large doily die cut.  I then did some watercolour effects with distress ink. I also added some star stamping, but faded it out a bit as I got closer to the edge of the paper.

I fussy cut quite a few elements and especially thought that the reindeer would be great to use, since the kids were sitting with a reindeer/moose in the photo.

The little white flowers I handmade.  These were flower die-cuts that I cut from white cardstock and layered together and then shaped for added depth and dimension.

This photo was taken 5 years ago at Christmas and I cannot believe how the kids have grown!

Thanks so much for stopping by the BoBunny blog today.  I hope that you found a little inspiration and perhaps the Christmas bug has bitten!!

We hope to see you back tomorrow.
