I created a layout using the oh-so gorgeous Bo Bunny Madeleine collection. I love, love, love this collection!
I enjoy creating layouts using photos that I have taken and this one is no exception.
I took this photo in June 2009 while visiting my daughter, Brianne, when she was living in the Chicago area attending school.
Brianne showed me this delightful, expertly created nest containing NINE tiny Robin eggs cushioned & surrounded by feathers, dried grasses, etc. This incredible surprise was inside an abandoned BBQ pit that was on the balcony of the townhome Brianne was renting. The vent cover on the side of the BBQ pit was missing, making a doorway to a perfect safe haven! What a SMART MaMa bird!
When I saw the Lindy's Stamp Gang March 2015 Color Challenge, I knew immediately that the colors were perfect for this awesome photo! WOW!
Here is the beautiful color challenge this month:
Using LSG C'est la vie Cerise from the Tres Chic Magicals set, I colored modeling paste and stenciled the beautiful damask design; followed by splatters in the same color Flat Fabio spray C'est la vie Cerise. The other splatters were made by mixing gesso with LSG South Shore Sand (in the Flat Magicals set Hawaiian Islands).
LSG Starburst Frostbitten Fuchsia was sprayed on the lace. Under a light, the gorgeous fuchsia shimmer shines through this white spray.
All of the resin pieces were heat embossed using LSG embossing powders.
The bird & nest:
~nest colored with Golden Angel Wings
~bird colored with Desert Moon Turquoise
~eggs colored with C'est la vie Cerise
The bird cage & the feather:
~both colored with Silver Moon Mistletoe
The pink flowers were sprayed with LSG Starburst spray Frostbitten Fuchsia & the blue flowers were paint brushed with LSG Flat Fabio spray C'est la vie Cerise. White raffia was sprayed with LSG Starburst spray A Bit o' Bubbly - a perfect color match to the dried grasses in the photo!
I bought some adorable dies that my good friend Tracy Funk uses frequently in her gorgeous creations.
I used a couple of them in this LO.
Hope you enjoyed viewing as much as I enjoyed creating!
Have a great day, Lisa : )
