Howdy Doody Peoples ... thanks for stopping by the Buzz and Bloom Blog.
Have you copped an eye-full of the new awesome B&B products??? I was gobsmacked when I first saw the new designs, and even more excited when my DT package arrived with some of the new goodies in it!!
Hands down, my most fav B&B product is now the chipboard Ornamental.
I JUST LOVE IT!!! and I couldn't wait to play with it and incorporate it into my next project!!
Now because I was totally blown away by this new chipboard shape, I wanted to make sure that it featured predominately on my layout. Firstly, I used it as a mask, both down along the left hand side of the page and partially across the bottom of the page. I used some glimmermist to spray over the mask and then traced around the ornamental shape with a fine tipped acid free pen to really define the shape. (Doesn't it look amazing!!)
Next, I grabbed my Adirondak Denim Paint Dabber, and painted the ornamental chipboard shape. After the paint dried, I cut the ornamental shape into 2 parts. (Another way to get more out of your lagrer chipboard shapes.) You can see I have also used some of the new chipboard Buttons which I have also painted with some Adirondak Paint Dabbers. As is my usual approach when using Buzz and Bloom Chipboard shapes, I added a coat of dimensional magic ... (personally,I love the glossy finish this gives to these shapes!!). To finish off the buttons, I added some twine by threading it through the holes of the buttons and tying into a knot. The final piece of Buzz and Bloom yumminess that I added to this layout is the chipboard Vette Alphabet - Upper Case letter "N" which I am using as a monogram title. I have applied the same technique to this letter as I have done to the Ornamental shape.
