Team "B" Reveal

It's time for the reveal for Team "B" over at Once Upon A Sketch. The journaling theme for this challenge is Seasons. Head on over to the blog to see the entire team's inspiration. Also our guest designer, and check out the awesome prizes you can win if you play along!!! Check the blog HERE.

Now here is my take on the challenge. I chose Winter, it's not exactly my favorite Season, Summer is my favorite, but there is something about the quiet and still in the Winter when it snows!

Here is the sketch for the challenge.

I used a mixture of Petaloo and Prima blooms. I also made a tiny twine bow.

I painted the Imaginarium Designs chipboard leaves ivory, and added stickles to the berries. It matched the glitter finish on the beautiful Bo Bunny papers.

I also used Imaginarium Designs chipboard alphas on the title, also painted ivory.

The paper is all from the BoBunny SnowFall collection. Please go on over and join us for the challenge! We would love to have you. And thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Supplies used:
BoBunny SnowFall paper
Imaginarium Designs chipboard
Prima and Petaloo blooms
Making Memories paint
Ranger Stickles in turquoise
Zig markers
