Up Up & Away! - BoBunny DT

One of BoBunny's new collections is Dreamer and typically my first thought was to go OTP.  I find them so easy compared to layouts, and never seem to run out of ideas for them.
The inspiration for this came from a fellow DT member, Tracee Provis who also does amazing OTP.  She made a beautiful hot air balloon using Primrose - you can see that here.  Isn't stunning?!

This little beauty I found at Spotlight and it comes as, well I guess you'd call it paper mache.  I picked out which colours I wanted to use from the paper collection; made a template of one of the sections and cut them out, distressing all the edges.
One of the other new products BoBunny have brought out is the Ornate Doily Dies, and Ived used those to create the banner around the balloon.  There are three in the set and Ive used all three in this project.

Birds have been fussy cut from some of the papers and Ive curled these to make them look more life like and adhered them with foam dots.  Buttons, twine and seam binding ribbon tied all those banners to  each other.

This is the top of the balloon.  You can see the smallest of the Doily dies here with a button over the top - which covers up the joining of all those layers perfectly ;)

I kept the basket simple, just adding seam binding ribbon and brads to each point where the basket was connected to the balloon.
Isn't it the coolest thing?!  I love it :)

I was on a bit of an OTP roll at the time I made this, and over at BoBunny you can see an altered diary using the new decoupage papers and clear stickers. You can find it here but in the meantime heres a sneak peak.

Thanks for popping by, see you next time!
