Bunny Hunt

Paper Girls Challenge #66
Stop by the blog and see what our designers have done...then join in the fun!!!
 I've been experimenting with my Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical's, mixing them with different mediums. On this layout I tried acrylic paint and water. I can't say I've perfected a specific technique, but I am CERTAINLY having fun!!!

The girls found a bunny while on our family photo shoot. It made cooperating for pictures so much easier. The bunny, however, may have gotten the raw end of the deal. Just as he thought he had evaded them they were back for another look.
I used Blue Fern Studio's Chipboard (Icons Set Three and Bits of Honey) and Paper (Ombre Dreams)

My latest Memorable Seasons kit came in late Tuesday.
I've been desperate to start working with these beautiful papers.
I received Simple Stories:Sweater Weather.
My first project is this layout:

On one of my trips to Wyoming this summer I got to see the wild horses. They kept their distance (on a bluff across the river) but I was so thrilled to finally be seeing them. They were guarded by a magnificent white stallion. He had every reason to be proud of this beautiful herd!

Solid Cardstock
~ Gizmo ~
One of the sad things about school projects is the lack of room to keep them all. This clay figurine with assorted beads and cogs adorning it is just such a quandry. They clay dried quickly then someone dropped it and now it will never look the same. Knowing my household I snapped a photo of it when it first came home. Now at least it's memory is preserved.

At our house we are VERY MUCH into pirates so making a skull and crossbones was my first thought when I saw the mood board images. I went with Red, Black, and Gold for colors and generally just had a good time with this card.
