Sunday Funday Mermaid Party with Ginny


Happy Sunday Funday BoBunny Peeps! I'm dropping in to share some party inspired projects with the fabulous Down By The Sea Collection. I was thinking to myself what would be more fun than a mermaid party? Obviously a party with these awesome mermaid wands and a crown. So I channeled the five year old in me and created these whimsical accessories.

The mermaids were the focal images so I added them to all the pieces.

Who doesn't want to wear a crown on their Birthday? For this I simply cut (2)  6 x 12 inch strips then joined them on one end and cut a scallop at the top. After deciding what would be a good fit for a small persons head I joined the other side to create the crown.  I accented the top simply by dipping my finger in some Brilliant Blue Pearlescents and just ran it around the front and back. Next came the mermaid image and sentiment then it was topped off with coordinating BoBunny Blossoms and Double Dot Jewels.  Last but not least some eyelash trim to give the impression of netting.

These mermaid wands are for the guests to enjoy and have matching images as the crown.  The patterned papers are cut and stacked with foam spacers between the layers.The edges were finished like the crown by finger painting with Pearlescents. I colored some Pentart 3D Powder with more of the Brilliant Blue then adhered it to the bottom of the top circle. Once dry I dabbed some Gold and Caribbean Glitter Paste to accent it and give the illusion of water. More of the eyelash trim was wound around and secured.  I created fun accents for the wands by trimming thin strips of the paper and winding them around a pen to create spirals then tucked them in behind the top circle.  It's topped off with a shimmery ribbon bow and flowers that were finished with more of the Glitter Paste.

 For the handle of the wand I used straws that already had a stripe and just embellished it with more of the Brilliant Blue and Gold Glitter. This did take a little patience....but well worth the happy smiles for some cute kiddos when they get to be mermaids for the day : )

Okay that's all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

"Exploding" Papercrafts with Angela


Hi Dear Crafty Friends,
It's Angela here today.  Even if I'm half melted by the hot Italian summer, I won't stop crafting with you!
Today, I will show you a kind of exploding box I've made for a wedding of a friend of mine, using the beautiful Serendipity papers. Oh, it's such an inspiring collection!


Exploding Birdhouse by Angela Tombari using BoBunny Serendipity Collection

It has a birdhouse shape, to symbolize the new nest of the newlyweds, and when you open it...

... a flying bird fall down from the roof. The surprising effect is assured! :)

This bird comes from the Serendipity Noteworthy and it's absolutely stunning!
It's tied with an iron string embellished with a few pearls, white and gold.

This is the base when it opens and it has space to contain three photos; probably I'll put some pics taken at the wedding.
The "Happily Ever After" quote is a die, as well as the leaves garland around the nest. Actually, the garland is a square die, but I easily glued it down in a round shape.

At the center I positioned a nest surrounded with a cluster of embellishments. The flowers are stamped and fussy cut, while the butterflies are always from the Noteworthy pack.

A few embellishments on the outside too, around the round window, to complete the birdhouse box and voilĂ , the exploding birdhouse box is completed!
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you enjoyed the project.
See you soon.
Love,

Angela

One Layout Three Ways-Down by the Sea and Elena O.


Hello BoBunny Friends,

It's Elena here today and I've got a fun nautical layout to share with you today along with three ways to create it.

Wild & Free Scrapbook Page by Elena Olinevich using BoBunny Down By the Sea Collection

First I started with making some fussy cutting from the papers of Down by the Sea collection.

I cut out the frame, the mermaid tail in the waves and the mermaid itself

I wanted to keep the first layout simple and clean.

After I added more of embellishments, it started to look more detailed.

However I kept the sketch I followed initially and only added the layers behind the main clusters.

Next step was to add some mixed media techniques

I added the waves applying the paste through the Stickable Stencil

I also added the glitter paste and confetti paste since it really looks the mermaid's scales.

After those steps, the colors look more vibrant.

Here is the third version for you to enjoy!

Making Paper Look Like Water-with Shizuka


Hello BoBunny fans! It is Shizuka here.

Today I would like to introduce technique of adding texture which imaged the water surface.

[ IN THE RIVER ] 12 x 12 Layout by Shizuka Hirano


This time I used BoBunny's very beautiful Serendipity collection.



First, add a texture using BoBunny's thick Timeless stencil and Pentart stencil paste Peare Ice Flower.
While the stencil paste does not dry, use a palette knife to deliberately stretch the part of the thick stencil paste to collapse.


When the Timeless stencil paste dries, add more texture using BoBunny Backsplash Stencil and Pentart Stencil Paste Metal Silver. At this time as well I extended the shape of the stencil slightly.
When the stencil paste dries, I added color with Frost, Gold and Bronze glimmer mist.


Then I stacked several kinds of pattern paper under the picture and decorated it with BoBunny Tick Tock Die and chipboard.



 And I randomly colored with BoBunny Take Note Stamp and added sparkle with Pentart Delicate Acrylic Paint Metallic Bluish Silver and BoBunny Glitter Paste, Confetti Paste Silver.







I hope my work will be helpful for your production.

Thank you!!


Shizuka
