We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

March of the bunnies ...

The latest Craft Barn Calendar Challenge words for March are yellow and rabbits.

Thought I would try the bokeh technique that seems to be trending at the moment.

From the world of photography -
bokeh  (BOH-kay) - is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens.  Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light".

I started with a Distress Ink background, then punched some different sized circles out of card to use as stencils, and applied white Brilliance pigment ink.

Used some of my new Paper Artsy stamps and coloured them with Distress Ink pens, then added my one and only rabbit stamp - just a few times!

Now, I have either created very scary giant flowers, or teeny weeny rabbits!  Either way, I present to you - The March of the Bunnies (for March of course!).

  1. Staying with the yellow theme - a dear friend gave me some mimosa from the tree in her garden - 

- beautiful, and just love the perfume.

Happiness is yellow today!


  1. This made me laugh - I think you've definitely created giant triffid flowers but then it makes it more magical! Great design and love the Mimosa too.

  2. Very gorgeous flowers, excellent background and uber cute bunnies! :D
    I am jealous of your Mimosa gift, lol. Have great weekend ahead :o))

  3. Love the background and the wee bunnies make me smile :)

  4. I LOVE this. There is something bizarre and cute about the little prancing bunnies x

  5. Super page, I love the little bunnies and the giant flowers. Your mimosa spray reminds me of my time living in Montpellier in France.

  6. I love the giant flowers and the cute little bunnies - it's brilliant.

  7. Love your fun page, although I'm worried there are 2 rabbits caught in headlights!
    It's funny I have also noticed the Bokeh trending in the UK at the moment. Last year it was popular in the US, seems it takes a while to cross the ocean!

  8. Beautiful whimsical page, love the little bunnies and 3D flowers. Have a wonderful weekend, Shirleyxx

  9. Love it. Those marching bunnies make me smile.

  10. Just a fabulous page. Love the bunnies :)

  11. This is great, just love it. I do like the Bokeh effect and you have done it beautifully.x
