Hi ya to all you wonderful B&B lovers .... it's Nina here again ready to share with you my 3rd B&B project for 2010.
For this project, I have focused on using an amazing piece of B&B chipboard as a background focal point .... the Head Start Back To Square One Large. I have left the Head Start Back To Square One Large in it's raw state and placed it over a piece of patterned paper. I have also used some of the B&B Denim Patch Work Flora which I have cut to size to fit inside some of the square shapes that make up the Head Start Back To Square One Large . I used some dimensional magic to secure the Head Start Back To Square One Large into position on the patterned paper, and then added some machine stitching to give more texture and interest to the background.
Next, I painted some of the B&B Chipboard Alphas Vette Alphabet-Upper Case and Vette Alphabet- Lower Case (which happen to be my favorite B&B Alpha) in acrylic paint. When dry, I added a border to each alpha piece using an acid free journalling pen and secured them to my project using dimensional magic. I have also added a coat of dimensional magic to the top of each alpha for a glazed finish.
To complete the layout, I scrunched up some small pieces of blue tissue paper and added it to various squares within the Head Start Back To Square One Large to add more texture and dimension to the project. And finally, I added a B&B Acrylic Love Nest (Blueberry) as a larger embellishment.
I hope you all find yourselves now inspired to create a project using a chipboard piece from the amazing B&B Head Start range of products. As you can see, they are fun to use and a wonderful addition to any project. Have fun creating ....
