Mixed Media Tutorial With Beach Therapy!


Hello Everyone

It's Denise here today with a tutorial, using Under the Sea stencil and the Beach Therapy Collection.

I started off with some watercolour paper, some gel paste and Under the Sea stencil.

I did not make a solid block of stenciling.  I just narrowed the stenciling, at either ends of the page.

I did 2 sets of stencilling, diagonally across from each other and then dried these off.  I then did the other 2 sets.

Once all the stenciling was done, I allowed this to dry thoroughly.

I then took some sky blue acrylic paint and watered it down with water. Using a spray bottle, I sprayed the stenciling thoroughly before applying the watered down paint.

Just add small drops of acrylic paint at a time and keep spraying water into the drops, so that the paint spreads out and seeps into the paper. You can pick up your page to direct the flow of water and paint.  Keep some paper towels handy to mop up an excess and dab at the little water pools.

I then also added some drops of Frost Glimmer Spray and a little bit of white spray.  I used the white to tone down some of the areas.  This was then all allowed to dry. Below is the result,

Here is a closer look.

To emphasis the stenciling a little more I took some navy ink on a sponge pad and rubbed it over the stenciling.

I cut up some blocks of patterned paper, as per the photo below and cut a strip of vellum.

I stuck these down onto the background.

I then added some random stamping with some blue and aqua pigment inks.

I added some dry wall tape for texture.

Next was to add the wood photo film strip and some cotton.  Admittedly, I later removed the cotton! But that's the beauty of creating...one can add and remove elements.

I then added all the other little bits and my photo.  I always try and stick elements down, so that they are just stuck in the middle.  This then allows me to tuck layers etc. underneath these.

I added some more random stamping around the page and some chevron stamping at the ends of my patterned papers.

Lastly, I used a pen brown koki pen to outline some of the elements.  Then I covered up my photo and the main elements and used some aqua and green acrylic paint and a paintbrush to splatter all over the page.

Off The Page With Soiree!


Hello BoBunny fans! It's Irene here and today I would like to share with you all an altered project featuring BoBunny newly released and gorgeous "Soiree" collection. This is such a sweet and soft collection with beautiful pastel colors.

I've chosen to alter an acrylic clipboard with this collection as a gift for my mum. This is a picture taken while she is in Japan.

Besides this collection, I've also used the "Serenity" stickable stencil which is perfect for this picture. This stencil consists of some orient inspired images which I think will be great for any travel pictures taken in Asia or Chinatown. Here are some close-ups.

I've used some glimmer spray and glitter paste to add more colors to this project.

Misc Me Monday With Believe!


Hello there BoBunny fans,Bernii here and welcome to Misc Me Monday!

Today I wanted to share with you my Misc Me album that I made with the brand new Believe collection.  This collection is gorgeous with its bright colours and stunning patterns.

"faith" misc me layout by Bernii Miller for BoBunny using the Believe collection."faith" misc me layout by Bernii Miller for BoBunny using the Believe collection. 

To add illustration to the title cover I used a Journal Contents card and added a black and white border around the edge and I also carried that through the inside misc me cards.

 I found that using a Posca white pen and  my 0.8 black fine tip pen was the perfect combination for the border. You can see below I carried that over to all the cards and I love the unity it brings.

I also added some mixed media with the adorable mini stickable stencils which really are the perfect size for the Misc Me cards. So for the main title card I used the Lots of  Love stencil with some modelling paste and then used some fine orange glitter to sprinkle over the top. Here are some close ups...

Secret Garden With A Masculine Edge!


Hi BoBunny fans!

Today I would like to show you a layout I made with the gorgeous Secret Garden collection. At first glance, this collection seemed very romantic and feminine to me, but later on I figured it is a great collection for masculine projects too. I therefore used it to scrap this photo of my two brothers.


I used a combination of purple, blue and green papers of my layout and also used some wonderful coordinating embellishments to decorate my layout. I especially loved the chipboard stickers that come with this collection and used a few of them in the corners of my photo. The squares on my layout are cut out with the new 'Love Squared' dies.



I also used the new Flower Power stickable stencil to add a few glitter touches to my layout. I added some flowers in the corners of my layout. They are all made with copper glitter paste. I used pearls in the centers of the flowers. 


BoBunny Supply List:
Patterned papers: Arbor, Corsage, Roses, Vineyard/ Secret Garden; Books/ Beautiful Dreamer
6 x 6 Pad: Secret Garden
Chipboard: Secret Garden Chipboard, Secret Garden Layered Chipboard
Dies: Love Squared
Glitter Paste: Copper
Dot Jewels: Emerald, Mocha

I hope you liked my layout. Thank you for stopping by on the BoBunny blog today!

Happy crafting!
