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.

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...

Mommyx2, I tried to find a way to get in touch with you to give you the info, but couldnt find a source.Sadly the Sizzix frame has been discontinued and it took me almost a year to find it. I finally found it on Ebay. It is called Sizzix Frame 2. Book mark this page for your reference. Thats what I did. http://www.sizzix.com/product/655371/sizzix-bigz-die-frame-2
