I chose a mix of paper collections that coordinate very well together:
~Bo Bunny Somewhere in Time
~Bo Bunny The Avenues
~Graphic45 Steampunk Debutante
(I really love the femininity of this rose printed paper. It matches perfectly with the colors in this LO)
I started by stenciling a few areas of the page using copper crackle; then stamped with a Bo Bunny Stained Textures stamp; finished with a few good sprays of Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Shabby Turbine Teal.
From a separate identical page, I fussy cut the beautiful teal flowers in the bottom corner and made them three dimensional with foam tape; inked the edges & then dressed them up with Patina colored Stickles.
I was especially excited to find a steam locomotive sticker in the Bo Bunny Somewhere in Time collection because, as you can see, Evelyn Nesbit Thaw is standing on a locomotive in this wonderful 1925 photo! So, I enhanced this sticker with metal cogs and cotton for the 'steam'.
Since the Bo Bunny collection has a feminine/industrial theme, I was inspired to use lots of metal embellishments. I also added microbeads for interest. I combined colors Paradise & Jungle to become reminiscent of teal.
Here are some close ups of the metal embellies and the microbeads:
I added Wild Orchids Crafts roses (the teal ones were sprayed with LSG Starburst Shabby Turbine Teal); some rusty/natural colored hemp; punched rust colored cardstock to look like lace; and added finishing touches of microbeads & stickles.
Although it's a busy LO, I really enjoyed creating it and I'm pleased with the outcome.
