More Jillibean Soup "Birthday Bisque" - by Linda Eggleton

Hello everyone & welcome :)
Today I have 2 more layouts to share using the super fun Jillibean Soup "Birthday Bisque" collection....which is filled with lots of cheery bright colours & they are so much fun to work with!
PLUS, my 2 layouts are not birthday based at once again, this is another range of
 papers that is very versatile & quite suitable for any themed layout :)
First up
"Coota Haycarters"
My layout is based on the 1st June Stuck sketch
I have used the reverse side of the "Bunch of Balloons" paper for my background with
 some textured stencilling & a bit of random grungy stamping with Kaisercraft "Numbers"
stamp thrown in too.  I've used lots of the JBS Wooden Nickels & Wood Sprinkles mixed with
some 2Crafty chipboard & some wood veneers all over my page.....and you might note,
there is not a flower in sight! lol
Pics are of my DH with his bike at his very first cycling race at a town called Cootamundra
 - or Coota as we call it, and the race is known as "The Haycarters" - no idea where that
stems from.
Here are a few close ups....

Here I've cut one of the chevrons from the Smiden of Sweets paper, clustered with a few hand cut circles plus a sticker & Wooden Nickel...with a bit of the background work in underneath.

Some more of the hand cut chevrons that are up on 3d foam tape
with more Wooden Nickels & veneer arrow

2Crafty chipboard arrow coloured with red acrylic paint...and some strip journaling....with a few stickers from the Labels Sticker sheet along the side of my paper layers.

Another cluster of Nickels & Sprinkles...with 2Crafty lightbulb &
scalloped circle frame plus a SC veneer arrow & circle frame. 
They have all been coloured with gelatos & the lightbulb is inked in black.

And another 2Crafty arrow down the other side of the photos.
After working out where the main paper area of the page would be, I then used modelling paste with a Teresa Collins stencil to go around the outer edges of this area.  Once it was dry, I then randomly stamped with KC Numbers stamp & jet black archival ink. 

Next up is another bright fun page, this time about some fun times at the park
when my DD was a little tike...a non digital photo that just seemed to jump out at me to use with these papers :)
"Fun Times"
This one is based on sketch #271 at Creative Scrappers.

Again, some stencilling with modelling paste on my background page, this time with some added splashes of Glimmermists....and I've added my journaling around the edges of 2 sides of the page.
The stencil is Tim Holtz Layering Stencil - Hearts, and is a great sized stencil for working on smaller areas around your page :)

I've clustered a few Green Tara flowers with a 2Crafty Butterfly Frame
& another of the JBS Wooden Nickels.

The title is by 2Crafty...and I've simply coated it in gesso & then coloured it with a red gelato.
I've also used a few scrap pieces of leftover JBS Lattice Placemat and
placed them at the sides of the photo.

Here is a bit of a close up of the stencil work...along with a few stickers poking out here & there, along with a small JBS Wood Sprinkle

And another little cluster of Green Tara flowers & JBS Wooden Nickel.
So there you have another 2 layouts using this fun, gorgeous collection.
I hope you have been inspired :)
