Mixing JBS Releases for an Eclectic Fall Layout with Briana

Hey everybody, Briana Johnson here to share a fall page I made using several Jenni Bowlin Studio releases, some recent and some from way back when. I wanted to do something with an eclectic look using a funky fall color palette and lots of pattern. Would you believe I used 7 different lines on this layout! 

I used Circle Die Cut from Be Our Guest, Floral from Tangerine Dream, Album (one of my all time favorite JBS papers), Accessory Sheet, and Dictionary from Haven, the bingo card side of Holly Stripe from Christmas 2011, Petite Red Floral from Red & Black Collection III, Buttercup floral paper from Front Porch, and Aunt Charlotte from Family Tree available on sale right now in the paper pad - $2.50 for 42 sheets!

I also used shadow alpha stickers in orange/black (but they definitely go with orange or yellow) and red/black alpha stickers, black doily flowers, decorative delicate brads, Mercantile Exclusive label stickers in brown, mini chalkboard alpha stickers in yellow, flag banner stickers in red/ black, and brown apothecary stickers. Whew!

I traced one of Jenni’s chipboard butterflies, found HERE, on white cardstock. Then using those lines as I guide, I typed the journaling with a typewriter. I'm not going to tell you how many tries it took to get it just right. But I will say micro space is your friend. Then I cut it out, glued it onto the butterfly, used an exacto knife to clean up the edges, and finally went around the edges with an ink blending tool and JBS Malted Milk Ink.

Thanks for joining me and I hope to see you mixing your JBS in unexpected ways!
