Hi everyone, I'm up on the Bee Arty Blog today sharing an off the page project using the Bohemian Bliss collection. This project can be used as either a stand alone ornament, or a hanging ornament. If you've received the Bohemian Bliss kit, you would see a 'plank' of thick chipboard. This is what I have used as the base for this project.

Live Laugh Love Chipboard Canvas by Julie Schinkel
To start, adhere the chipboard to the floral side of the Wild Child 12x12 paper. Cut excess of and sand down the edges so they are smooth.
Ink all edges with Colour Blast White Gesso. I originally stenciled some feathers onto this piece but decided to go a different way (it happens when we are designing) so you can skip this step. It won't be seen on the final piece as it's hidden under all of the layers.
Cut a 2.5" x 8" strip from the B side of the Market Days 12x12 paper. Ink edges with Colour Blast White Gesso. Adhere to the left side of the chipboard leaving an equal distance between the top, bottom and left sides.
Trim down the pink quarter from the Patchwork 12x12 paper. Ink all edges with Colour Blast White Gesso. Adhere to the centre of the chipboard.
Random stencil some daisies using the Daisy Daze A6 stencil with some Colour Blast White Gesso and a sponge.
Fussy cut the floral and butterfly elements from the Bonus Cover Sheet.
Fussy cut the banners from the Boho Tags 12x12 paper.
Adhere all pieces to the chipboard canvas as shown.
Cut the LIVE, LAUGH and LOVE from the Sweet Talker Word Sheet. Mat each work onto some of the left over teal paper from the Wild Child 12x12 paper. Doodle around the edge of each word with a white gel pen. Adhere to the chipboard canvas using foam tape.
Doodle lines around the edge of the pink later with a white gel pen.
Random adhere some teal sequins from the Bohemian Bliss kit and splashes of Colour Blast White Gesso mixed with water to finish.
You can add some ribbon to the top either by punching holes or using very strong adhesive to make this a hanging ornament if you wish.
