Hi Bo Bunny fans today I am here to share with you a layout using some of Bo Bunny's mixed media products, also this month we teamed up with Imagine Crafts and I was sent some fun goodies to play with.

I started by giving my background paper a thin coat of gesso, just enough to tone it down but not cover the beautiful pattern on the paper. I then applied a some Crackle Paste Primer roughly in the areas I wanted to put the White Crackle Paste. I applied my White Crackle Paste through a stencil, and you can see how the shapes crackle where they go over the Primer.

I cut some clouds from vellum with the dies from the Fly Away set, after I had positioned them I used some Silver Foil Transfers to add a little detail. They really do shine!

For my page I used the Beautiful Dreamer Collection, some papers I tore and others have straight cut edges, I like the look of this mix. I was sent some Memento markers from Imagine Crafts, these are dual tip markers with a brush one end and a fine tip on the other end. I used my Scribble technique and Tuxedo Black to create my "Selfie" title. I also used the same Tuxedo Black pen to outline the edges of my papers.

When I came to construct my layout I found I had run out of foam dots, I took some corrugated card and added tear tape. I then adhered this to the back of my paper cluster and voila. The tear tape is so simple to use and really does have a very strong grip.
