Bo Bunny Prarie Chic and ScrapFx chippies

Have you taken a good look at the ScrapFx chippies? They are seriously wonderful, very detailed and sturdy and they are just perfect for embossing with one of my favorite product, Stampendous aged embossing powders.  On these two layouts, I've combined ScrapFx chippies with Bo Bunny's great new collection, Prairie Chic.

For this first LO I used Garden as my base paper and cut it to put the two edge patterns together and made the swirly pattern on the right side of the page.  I wanted to bring out the subtle greens in the background so I stamped some flourishes with an old Heidi Swapp foam stamp near the bottom and then liberally sprayed the page on the left with Lindy's Moonshadow mist.

The photo is of me and my big brother when I was 3 1/2 years old.  Ahhh, every little girl needs a big brother!

I am loving ScrapFx chippies and here I've used one of my favorite flourishes ever behind the photo. I embossed the chippy with Stampedous Aged Hunter Green Embossing Enamel. I love the this stuff! The birdhouse is painted with Viva Decor paints.

On this layout I was trying my hand and blending the photo into the paper in the style of our guest designer this month, Solange Marques.  After cutting my photo to fit inside the ScrapFx chippy circle,   I  painted some white gesso in the upper right corner, then I glued down the photo.  I added some molding paste and used a credit card to blend the edge of the photo into the molding paste.  I used Claudia Helmuth charcoalblack and traditional tan to stipple additional leaves on the tree, thereby extending the photo into the background. I covered the photo and then misted with Lindy's Frosted Forget me nots, stamped on some script with a Kaisercraft stamp and then added the ScrapFx chippy.

On the bottom left, I used a new Prima Lattice Stencil (6 x 6) and molding paste to create the lattice pattern.  After it dried I misted it liberally with Lindy's Edelweiss Moss Green.

I cut up a Prima Bretton Alyssa vine to layer around the large Manor House bloom.

Finally I fussy cut some banners from the paper and added to my floral cluster.
