December Snow details for the Leaky Shed Studio / BoBunny Product Swap

I'm back today to share the details for my "December Snow" layout
shared earlier this month for my Once Upon A...Sketch post.

I have featured Leaky Shed Studio Snowflakes and Snowflake Border chipboard paired with the BoBunny Christmas Collage Collection. I had so much fun working with these gorgeous products. Although this paper is designed as a Christmas collection, some of the pages lend themselves beautifully to other uses like this wintry page.

"December Snow"

Tips and Techniques
I've clustered gorgeous BoBunny Daisy and Bouquet flowers, jewels, buttons, trinkets, lace, stickers, and layered chipboard along with handcrafted twine flowers around my snowflake photo. For a wintry feel, I've brushed and dabbed white crackle paint over the elements.

Here's another view.

One of Leaky Shed Studio's new release pieces is this gorgeous Snowflake Border (Small).  I've simply dabbed it with BoBunny Gold Glitter Paste, leaving bits of the bare chipboard peeking through. I've added a Mocha BoBunny Jewel to the center of each flake. 

My title uses the BoBunny Combo Stickers. The letters are close in color to my background, so I adhered them then lightly sanded to help them pop. The green flourish behind the snowflakes is also from the the Christmas Collage Combo Sticker sheet.

Above the photo I've clustered one of my handcrafted twine flowers centered with a BoBunny snowflake button and one of the Leaky Shed Studio Snowflakes from the Six Snowflakes set. I edged the photo with white crackle paint for a snowy effect.

One more snowy cluster.
A tutorial for my twine flower can be found HERE

I used one of the tags from the Decoupage page and cut more flags from paper scraps for my banner. I dry brushed the banner with gesso. Above the tags is a piece of BoBunny lace dabbed with Gold Glitter Paste and Crackle Paint.

In the center of the page and under the title, I spritzed BoBunny Bronze Glimmer Spray. Since it is a winter page, I wanted to lighten it just a bit, so stamped the background using BoBunny's It is Written and Stained Textures stamp sets. I then heat embossed using Shabby White Embossing Enamel by Fran-tage. 

More texture is added by splattering with white and green drawing ink. I've scattered some of the BoBunny Mocha Jewels around the page along with another of the Leaky Shed Studio Snowflakes.
