Be the Light-Mixed Media Layout-with Elena O


"Be the Light" Layout

Hello BoBunny friends. Elena is here today.

August is one of my favorite months, and I like it for the colors it is filled with - mostly bright colors like tan, gold, yellow and  orange.

However I love these colors in my daily life and for my today's post it was a bit of fun to use them for my layout.

  I used Faith collection and it is bold and bright, full of expression.

  I started with creating the layers over my 2 pictures, and since my youngest holds the large ball in his hands, it has determined the shape for the most part of my embellishments

  I cut out some of the scalloped circles from the papers, as well as some doodled flowers.

  Then I followed the circle theme and stenciled some of them with the glitter paste

I also played with coloring some spaces with Pentart acrylic paints.

But the main focus was this light bulb, and the phrase within it.

Designer's Choice-Life in Color with Denise

Hello Everyone!

It's Denise here today, sharing some BoBunny goodness, in the form of 2 tags, using the gorgeous Life in Color collection.

Here's the first of the two tags.

I actually used the BoBunny packaging, from chipboard from this collection, as it was just too beautiful to discard and it was wonderful to be able to recycle it. The dark blue flower is one that was made up of layers of BoBunny petals.  It came out beautifully.

Here's a closer look. I used die-cuts to add detail to this little cluster.

Let's have a look at the second tag then.

I used some BoBunny stamps and and other stuff to create the background and then added some gorgeous chippies and stickers, along with some die-cuts and small flowers. 

Here's a closer look at the little cluster.

I used some Pearlescents for the flower centres and also to add some detail on the key chipboard.

I so love creating tags and I always have a number of tags on hand, to use for any occasion.
Do you love creating tags, as much as I do? It's such a great way to use up scraps and little bits and pieces.

Thanks so much for stopping by the BoBunny blog today and we hope to see you back tomorrow.

Have a fabulous day!

Serendipity Mini Album-with Solange


Hello BoBunny fans!!! It's Solange Marques here!
Today I'll share with you more one project using the fabulous Serendipity collection!
I've made a Mini Album with a nicely decorated cover and page inserts:





This collection is so sweet and romantic, then I've added some lace flourishes and flowers on the cover.  You can also see a few3 little metal found pieces and fussy cuttings of some of the page elements that I just love.






Now for a peek at some of the inside pages.  Some have pockets for memorabilia and keepsakes, and some are waterfall pages so you can have and view lots of images in one view.






















Hope you like my creation!

Hello BoBunny friends!! It's Ayumi here.

Today I will introduce mixtmedia layout I made with BoBunny Serendipity collection and Pentart products.

[You're beautiful] mixtmedia layout  By Ayumi Iwashita




Photography:Studio Petit Pas







Let me show you how to make it.
First, prepare white paper which is water resistant.
I will put a glimmer mist there.
Overall spread in the mist of water.

Next, prepare the frame.





Coating the frame all over with the white gesso, and when it is dry, brush on the Glimmer Spray.



I painted the Tutu and Mint Glimmer Spray colors with the brush in the same way.




When the mist dries, I spread a bit of these three Pearlescents in strategic spots for extra shine.




Next, I will decorate using pictures and pattern paper. 




Then I paint with different colors of Pentart Delicate Acrylic Paint.









Add 3D Balls and 3D Powder to give a few small patches of texture.



Then I sprayed Mint Glimmer Spray on the 3D textures.




Finally it is completed with well placed touches of stamping!



Thanks for joining me today.



Enjoy your scrappy day!

"My SUN"-a mini book


Hi there, it's Angela here and I'm very proud to be with you for another year of fun and crafts!
My project today is a mini album dedicated to my son Francesco and I've chosen the BoBunny Down by the Sea collection because it has lots of blueish colors, perfect for a boy project.

My Sun Mini Album by Angela Tombari using BoBunny Down by the Sea Collection

It's basically a one sheet mini album, , yes just one sheet of paper and bunches of little bits and pieces to make up the embellishment on the album.

Particularly, I've taken the 12 x 12 Down by the Sea Cardstock, cut it into 3 stripes of 4 inches height and scored each stripe at 4 inches again.

I folded each stripe like an accordion and glued them back to back.

It was a pity to waist the inner parts of the cardstock, so I fussy cut all the mermaids and I ended up with a bunch of them. I didn't want to use them for a boy theme, but I will incorporate them in future projects for sure!

Then, I made the cover with a strip of acetate wrapped around the mini.

On the front I sewed a beautiful button and a gold elastic on the back. Inside the elastic I put a charm made of a couple of shells, something I found in my stash, that helps opening and closing the mini.

Many of the pages are embellished with BoBunny Gold Pearlescent around the wreaths. That gives a precious effect to the photo and lights up the project with a beautiful visual effect.

To give variety to the mini I filled in some of the pages with embellishments as you can see above.

I also included a 'shaker page' filled in with gold and aqua sequins.

I leave you with a short video where you can see a walk-through of the entire album.

Angela
