Time for another Field Trip Friday where our DT steps
outside their comfort zone and amazing things happen!!

Get ready to be WOWED! 
Gabi has stepped into the world of mixed media and made an adorable canvas
that makes you feel empowered and artistic!  She also made a fun video tutorial
and gave us all the pattern for her adorable lil miss.

Mixed Media Canvas
by: Gabrielle Pollacco

 check out the detail.... 
 seriously so much fun!

11 x 14 inch canvas
Patterned Paper; Little Miss Brenna, Little Miss Maree, Little Miss Jaquoya, Little Miss Cut Outs, Gabrielle: Cameo, Dot
6x6 Paper Pad: Little Miss
Stamps: Midnight Frost
Rub-on's: Country Garden

I've seriously got that UTZ in my tummy that says I have to go home and try this.

Next up... ROMY
Here's what she had to say...
"Since each Bo Bunny collection comes with many gorgeous papers and beautiful coordinating embellishments, it is pretty tempting to stick to one collection on a layout. I sometimes mix up two collections that look a lot alike, but I have never combined two very different ranges of paper on one layout. 
But the Ambrosia collection inspired me to use a mixture of vintage and colourful on my layout. The muted, vintage tones in the background will make the beautiful colours stand out even more. I used one sheet of the Welcome Home and one sheet of Et Cetera for my background. I also incorporated a sheet of music note paper from an old book. On top of those vintage layers I added papers and embellishments from the Ambrosia collection to create a colourful 'frame' for my photo. 
I had a blast mixing up these collections that I normally wouldn't use together and I hope you will give it a try too."
The little things are not so little after all
Romy Veul

Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Flowers, Marigold, Primrose, Roses, Stripe, Cut Outs/Ambrosia; Extra/Et Cetera; Stripe/Welcome Home
Chipboard: Ambrosia 12 x 12
Stickers: Ambrosia Cardstock Sticker, Ambrosia Dimensional Stickers
Jewels: Ambrosia
Rub-ons: Ambrosia

Every single time I read that the girls mix up lines, I think I want to try it...
however, I have yet to do it, but Romy made it seem so easy!

And last but certainly not least....  
Juliana says,
"I knew immediately that using rub ons would be stepping outside my comfort zone. I hate to admit this, but I rarely use them. I also hate to admit this...I am afraid of them! I am not a stick it down and move on kind of scrapper. I like to move things around before I commit to their final placement. And as you all know, rub ons can't be moved around at all. Recently one our very own designers, Tara Orr, shared a tip about putting them on cardstock and then cutting around them. Why had I never thought of that?! This is the technique I used and I combined them with stickers from the 12 x 12 Combo Stickers to embellish my layout. If you are interested in more step by step details on how I used them on my layout, please feel free to stop by my blog: 17turtles."
