Layering with Black Paper Layout

Hi everyone!
Today I want to share with you a layout I made with layering different papers and using a black background. Usually I always use white cardstock for the background but I wanted the colors of the papers to pop a little bit more so with black background I think it did.

Made a layout with my mom from 2016 when we celebrated midsummer in sweden. Think this picture of here is great!
I used the sweet clementine collection and some white gesso together with some other products from the collection. see the list below!

You can also find a process video for this layout on BoBunnys youtube chanel.

I hope you will enjoy it.

Natural Wonders Layout with Elisa

Hi Crafty Friends!!!

Here is Elisa from Italy... Today I want to share with you my new LO... This time I wanted to have fun with layering!!!
But, let me tell you something about this project!!!
When I saw for the first time the Celebrating Freedom Collection I immediately decided to make a project with a special color palette : neutral color (black white and ivory) and rainbow color. The butterflies in the Noteworthy gave me the idea!!!

But let me show you all the layering in this project; first of all the paper stripes on the left side:

This time not too much fussy cutting for me... Only a little bit for the lace and the butterflies sides...

Other layering examples: 2 layers for the butterflies (Butterfly Kisses stamp, embossed with glittered gold powder):

And 2 layers for the stencil too!!! First time with blending tool and a bit of black ink (not too much); second time with Gold Glitter Paste.

And some layers also for the picture: I used a piece of "Happy" cardstock (Celebrating Freedom collection) and a piece of vellum under the photo.

And now let me show you what I mean for Natural Wonders: a magical rainbow on Bryce Canyon (the best layering example by the nature, I would say!!!) . What else!

Creative Layering Layout with Angela

Hello BoBunny friends!
It's Angela here. The highlighted theme on the blog this week is Layering. When we talk about layering in scrapbooking, we tend to think to pieces of papers underneath a photo and lots of bits and pieces in between. Instead, this made me immediately think to a photography I saw somewhere on the web, an artistic image of layers of stripes made of light canvas and hung on a wall. In the scrapbook page I'll show you, I tried to reproduce that image I had in mind.


I went for an A4 layout because it felt more dynamic and more appropriate for this type of composition. I also had the right photo for this page. I took it at the Picasso Museum in Barcelona and that walking man with red shoes is my hubby :)


To create the layers, I chose papers with soft backgrounds and in rainbow colors. They mainly comes from Harmony BoBunny collection except for a couple of papers that are from Sweet Clementine and Bee-utiful You. I cut the papers in strip of two inches wide. I arranged them overlapping one on the other and varying the length of each one.


I created a little cluster of tags and labels at the bottom of the page, right on the photo. It's not properly a journaling, just a note of when and where the picture was taken.
Then, to create a visual triangle on the layout, I used the beautiful brads BoBunny makes for each paper collection.


The title is sticked on a stripe of vellum and is made of silver alpha thickers. The letters are shiny and have an holographic effect that reflects the colors of the different papers.


I'm quite happy on how the page turned out. I hope you enjoyed my layering idea and I have inspired you to give it a try. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Layout Layering Tips with Elena

Hello BoBunny friends, it's Elena here to share some layering tips with you today


 Actually, I can not imagine my crafting process with no using the layers. Normally, I start any project with preparing the papers that match each other and that I would like to use

This time I decided to use the circle shapes to create my layout. Using Circle Spin & Trim tool I made the circles of 3 different shapes 3" - 3 1/2" and 4" size. The largest circle is the base for the smaller, so it's easy to make the layers .


Except for the circles I've added the shapes that were included into the Noteworthy pack - the banners and tags, ans some of the images I cut out that have the rectangle shape.


To embellish everything Ive made fussy cutting and added the flowers and bees on the top of my circle clusters. To mount everything I used the adhesive foam tabs and the leftovers from my cardboard to fix everything on different levels.

Mother's Day Cards with Emmy

Hello BoBunny fans!

Emmy here today with my first post for May. Since Mother's Day is only a few days away, my post will be all about cards and mothers!

For today's post I decided to use my favourite collection from BoBunny's newest release - Celebrating Freedom!

For the card bases I used plain white cardstock. I cut off two 15 x 21 cm stripes and I folded them in two. The using different pattern papers I created the layers under my main design. Before adhering the layers with mounting tape, I inked their edges.

For my main design I used various chipboard stickers and pre cut images. I die cut the letters from pattern paper and lace cardstock and arranged them as shown.

As a finishing touch I added banners made out of washi tapes and different colored rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed today's post!

Mothers Day Embroidery Hoop Canvas by Denise

Hello BoBunny Fans!

It's Denise here today with an altered Embroidery Hoop for Mother's Day, using the soft and fabulous Harmony Collection.

Harmony_Mothers Day Canvas_Denise_08 May 01I had intended to go all mixed media on this project and then I found some beautiful lace from my Mom and I thought it was just gorgeous and didn't want to cover it up too much.

Harmony_Mothers Day Canvas_Denise_08 May 02

I used a lot of chipboard and layered this up with some noteworthy bits, flowers and die-cut leaves.

I also used the alphabet die-cut from BoBunny for the title.

This is a fairly uncomplicated project and is really about piecing bits and pieces together to make something pretty for my Mom.

I created a video to share this crafty process with you and hope you will be inspired to try a project like this too.

Thanks so much for stopping by the BoBunny blog today and hope to see you back tomorrow.
Have a super day!
