Way up on the Mountain – Featuring BoBunny – Take a Hike

By Kerry Engel

Creative blocks? Do you every get them? Sometimes I move the photos around for days. They sit on the counter and everyday I come in and move them around until something jumps out for me. With this set of pictures my first impulse was my go-to “grid layout”. This layout sat on my counter for a few days, it felt sort of boring, it didn’t get my mojo going.

That goofy selfie photo made me laugh and I felt like it should be the dominant photo on the page. I also wanted more white space. Something that is hard to do with a set of photos that filled their frames. I also wanted to create some movement, this is when I decided on this layout.

After I figured out how I wanted to position my photos I thought it would look cool if I could make it look like leaves were blowing across the 2 page spread.

I couldn’t believe how well the BoBunny, Take a Hike collection coordinated with my camping photos. The colours in this collection are perfect for summer photos. I cut out leaves on my cutting machine and filled them with a variety of papers.

I tucked and layered my leaves along the layout. Using Scrapbook Adhesive foam squares to elevate a few sets of leaves. I hand stitched some lines with embroidery thread and splattered Ranger ink around the stitching. I put the ink on a plate and wet a big paintbrush with water and then I dipped the wet brush on the ink, this made it easier to splattered the paint on the paper. The watered down ink created a really subtle splash.

Then I attached a bunch of buttons, fun chipboard elements and stickers to the page.

I love two page layouts they really allow you to tell the story.
