BoBunny Canvas Glitter paste Tutorial

Hello there... Today, I am sharing a Canvas Wall Hanging featuring the Sweet Life Collection and Glitter Paste. I had so much fun with all of the new Bo Bunny products from the latest collections. I chose to do a wall hanging for a dear friend who owns a photography business. Shannon James of Portraits by S&S. The photo is of her gorgeous little one Delilah. This is kind of like a canvas wrapped photo, except it is a 3 dimensional scrapbook layout mounted on 12x12 canvas with the edges being adorned to match the layout. I did a lot of stamping using various BoBunny stamps. I mixed older and newest collections. There are so many gorgeous stamps to choose from now. The new Flutter stamps are darling. I LOVE butterflies!!

I love how just by rubbing some glitter paste onto the blossoms, it makes them come to life! They just shimmer and shine. I pulled off the middle to the flowers and replaced it with a brad. The smaller roses were die cut and rolled using paper from the 6x6 paper pad.

here are more of the Bluch blossoms. The leaves were all hand cut, rolled and glittered as well.

I framed the gorgeous photo of Delilah using a Sizzix die cut frame. I die cut a piece from corrugated cardboard and toped it with a diecut piece from the 6x6 paper pad. I adhered them in layers and popped it off of the page using small pop dots. I did not want to crop the photo, so parts are peeking out from under the frame.

I used the Glitter paste on various parts of the canvas. I also rubbed it around the decorative punched paper on the background.

I also spread some glitter paste on the leaves of the flowers. I layered parts of the die cut Ornate Frames behind the Noteworthy tag. I even placed one over the word dream.

The Tutorial to create the Canvas Wall Hanging:

Step1. Prepare the sides of the canvas by rubbing on some Pearlescents in Blush. This will create a base that the glitter paste will adhere to.

Step 2. Apply your stencil to the edge of the canvas and stick down firmly. Apply a thick layer of glitter paste using a palette knife.

 Step 3. Pull off the stencil carefully, and repeat this step until the whole perimeter of the canvas is done.

Step 4. Adhere your layout to the canvas once the glitter paste has dried.

Check out the BoBunny Blips for tips and tricks on Glitter Paste and Stencils and more.
I hope you were inspired to create a canvas of your own. I surely enjoyed creating this Off the Page project using Sweet Life and Glitter Paste. I hope you give it a try.
Till next time...

Lindy's Stamp Gang March 2015 Color Challenge

I am up on the Lindys Stamp Gang Blog today with Part 2 of the reveal of The March 2015 Color Challenge. This months colors remind me of the pastels of Spring. Lindys sprays have a wonderful way of shimmering on your projects.

 I wanted to use a photo of my wonderful friend Deborah's gorgeous granddaughter Brynlee when she was younger. I had edited the photo for Deb a couple of years ago.  She has the deepest cutest dimples!!
I cut a 10x10 piece of Woodland Winter Journal  BoBunny paper from the Woodland Winter Collection.  I adhered it to a piece of corrugated cardboard. Once I wet the edges, tore and  peeled back the paper, I used white gesso to paint it. When the gesso was dry, I sprayed the exposed cardboard with Lindys in C'est la vie Cerise Flat Fabio.

The background was treated with a light layer of white gesso.Then I applied texture paste with a mask in random spots. Once the texture paste dried, I sprayed and splattered the background with  Frost Bitten Fuscia Starburst spray and C'est la vie Cerise Flat Fabio spray.

 One of my favorite stamp and die sets is from Heartfelt Creations. It is from the Posy Patch collection. There are so many different ways to create flowers with this combo set.I die cut the flowers from  65lb white card stock and sprayed them with C'est la vie Cerise Flat Fabio. Once the flowers dried I stamped them with Heartfelt creations Posy Patch stamp. I used 3 of the sizes and layered the flowers.The flowers were arranged in clusters on the page.

 Once the flowers and and framed photo were arranged on the background, I used the now retired Heartfelt Creations stamp Vintage Word Background around the arrangement.

The Sizzix die cut frames were primed with white gesso, then given a light coat of  I'm Late, I'm Late Slate Flat Fabio spray, then a couple of coats of South Shore Sand Starburst spray, then stacked to create a more dimensional frame. The photo was then mounted on the top of the frame.
Once the layout was done, I dry brushed some white gesso over the flowers. For a final golden shimmer, I sprayed  some A Bit Of Bubbly Starburst Spray over the entire layout.

Thank you for stopping by to day. I hope that the March Color Challenge inspires you to pull out those colors and create something of your own.

BoBunny***Smile Layout***

 Today, I bring you a layout of my dear friend Pam's mother. She sent me a couple of her photos to scrap. Her beautiful smile is what inspired this layout. BoBunny came out with 5 beautiful collections this season. I used a bit of Sweet Life, Garden Journal and Heritage Ancestors.

I fussy cut the small post cards from the paper, notched the top ends, punched a hole on top and strung some  string through the holes and created these sweet tags.

To create the tag that wraaps around the photo, I backed it with some chipboard for stability, placed  string through the holes and wrapped it around the photo, then tied it in a bow.

The rolled roses were free hand cut spirals and created with the new Hot Pink Double Dot paper.  Once the roses were rolled, they were topped with Glitter Paste in Blush,

The leaves were punched, rolled and inked. The flourishes that create the vine around the layout was created with the brand new Flourish Craft Die. YES!! BoBunny had dies. They are wonderful!!!

I used a piece of the Lattice Frame die and tucked it under the photo. Both of the butterflies are Noteworthy pieces. I adhere only the body to the layout and lifted the wings a bit.

This layout was created on a peice of 12x12 corrugated cardboard. I wet the edges, sprayed it with Lindys Stamp gang in Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst Spray and wrinkled it up a bit for texture.

I matted the whole photo area with a Large Bunny Doily.I Just sprayed it with Lindys Stamp Gang Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst spray.

Dusty Attic February Mood Board

Good morning everyone! Today I share with you, the luscious colors of the February Mood Board that were used to create my layout. One of my favorite colors is purple and all the shades in between. So this Mood Board really excited me, because I got to work with my favorite berry shades. 

 I created this layout and used a 12x12 piece of corrugated cardboard as my base. I adhered a 12x12 piece of lavender cardstock to the base using ModPodge, then added a second smaller layer with a piece of brown cardstock . Once it was dry, I wet the edges and peeled back the cardstock taking the top layer of the cardboard with it, exposing the ridged part of the cardboard an wrinkled and tore it up a bit. I used Lindys Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mist in Mooonlit Mulberry over the cardstock pieces. I sprayed the exposed cardboard edges with Moon Shadow Mist in Phantom Fuchsia.

The Dusty In Color acrylic paints are wonderful! I used the Lavender Blush to paint the Word Pack #4 "Moments" title. The paint is so thick and lush that it only takes 1 coat.

To color the Elegant Swirls #13, I used the smaller swirls from the  pack and used Dusty In Color in Raisin to paint them.

 I painted a piece of Corrugated Card for the photo mat, using Dusty In Color in Raisin. The Sweet PeaFrame Set was painted with Lavender Blush.

I tucked some Dusty In Bloom Flowers in Dusty Rose, into my handmade flowers.The wreath on this layout was actually a project I did for Heartfelt Creations. I thought with the colors, it was just perfect for this layout.

 I created the flower wreath a while back and thought I would incorporate it into this layout. I did recolor a piece of the the Circle Frame set in Dusty In Color in Hot Chocolate that I used for the wreath, then wrapped some twine around it and tied a bow. I topped the bow with another flower in Vintage rose.

Mini Tag Album BoBunny

I am up on the BoBunny Blog this week with a  6x3 mini Tag album using the gorgeous Garden Journal Collection. The new metallic Pearlescent Pens are really versatile. I chose to use the Graphite to color my die cut frame and the tag holes to make them look like metal. The new metallic Pearlescent Pens are fabulous! I die cut my tags using Sizzix Tag and Bookplate die

 The new dies from BoBunny are fabulous!! I used one part of the Lattice Frame for my front and back covers. Once the die cuts were finished with the Graphite Pearescents Pen, I then dotted it to make it look like rivets. I used the Blush Daisy Blooms, and created the leaves by punching them out from leftover paper. I inked the leaves, rolled them for texture and tucked them under the flowers.

 I created multiple pages from the tags. Each one has a pocket for a folded card, and the other side is clank to add photos or journaling. I added a piece of twine to the holes on top.

The Daisy Blooms in Blush compliment the pink in the Garden Journal papers. I clustered 3 of them on the cover.

 The next few photos are of the inside pages.

 This is the journal opened up and showing bot the front and back covers. I punched holes on the side of the tags using my Cropadile and strung all of the pages together using 2 book rings.

 Thank you for joining me today. I just love making these sweet little journaling minis that can be used for a variety of reasons. This one may hold notes of flowers and plants in my garden and record this years beautiful bounty.

Lindys Stamp Gang ***Gilded Mini Album***

I'm up on the Lindys Blog this week with a new project for you.  I love Starburst Sprays for the shimmer, I love Flat Fabios for the gorgeous saturated color and I love Lindy's embossing powders because you can emboss just about anything with it. I especially love how it embosses on metal and resin.  I used the variety of products on this 6x6 mini album trying to get a gilded look.
I sprayed white silk flowers with Rizzo's Rowdy Red Flat Fabios  and Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst Spray. The leaves were colored with Maidenhair Fern Green Starburst Spray.

  I heat embossed the corner filigree metal pieces that my wonderful friend Rae Moses sent me and the resin frame that I picked up at Michaels for $1.00. I used Queen Sheba's Silver on both pieces, then I sprayed it with Bayou Boogie Gold Starburst Spray.

I used some Zipper Stop Seam Binding to create the ties. I sprayed them with  Rizzos Rowdy Red Flat Fabios  and Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst spray. The wonderful thing I love about spraying fabric or ribbon with Lindy's, is that it does not stiffen the fabric or ribbon like some of the other sprays out there.The ribbon stays soft.

The entire mini album was created from corrugated cardboard that I just adhered the patterned paper to. I followed a tutorial from Frank Garcia for the binding technique to put the pages together, then I covered the spine using a technique I learned years ago from creating Post It Note covers. I just adapted it to create my spine and slipped the album in.

 I used some Tim Holtz clasps to tie my ribbon to. There is no need to untie the ribbon. Just unclip  the clasp from the cover. Once everything was in place, I sprayed the whole outside of the album with the Bayou Boogie gold spray.

Thank you for joining me today. Don't forget to check back often on the Lindys Stamp Gang Blog as the Lindy's Designers dazzle you with their art!!

BoBunny Wild Card Mini Treasures mini Book

 I love doing 12x12 layouts. That's my thing, but what comes close are mini albums, but my new love is Foto Folios by Kathy Orta Files (Paper Phenomenom) . She has the most amazing patterns. Bo Bunny Collections are perfect in creating them because besides the card stock and patterned paper, there are all of the other wonderful coordinating embellishments  to add to your projects. You wont need anything else. For this project, I took the pattern directly from Kathy's book, Interactive Mini Scrapbooks. I used the Mini Treasures tutorial. Kathy Orta Files herself often uses BoBunny for her projects and even references BoBunny in her book. I created this folio for my husband to display some of his car restoration projects. He has a talent like no other. His work deserved a special place to display his best. For this project I used the awesome Wild Card Collection. Perfect for your masculine projects.

 this is the inside. The pockets are filled with tags and slide outs. There is plenty of real estate for photos and journaling. Once I constructed the base of the folio, it was covered with Double Dots cardstock. The patterned paper was then layered on the top. Pockets were created then the tags and pullouts to slide in all of the nooks and crannies

Here is a view f all of the tags and pull outs once they are out of the pockets of the folio.

 Here is a close up of the inside. There are top pockets, side pockets and even pockets on the inside of the fold.

You know me and my love for feminine flowers, I can't do something without the flower element, so I decided to something a  tiny, little, masculine. So I created Rosettes because they aren't so frilly. I think they were perfect for this project. For the title design, I fussy cut some of designs on the paper, backed it with thin chipboard and layered them with Pop Dots to create the dimensional element on the cover. I cut the layered chipboard dice in half and used it for my rosette middles. The other is a brad.

 This is the back of the album. I used a piece of the Noteworthy
