The background paper ForeverYoung Yum,was adhered to a piece of 12x12 corrugated cardboard using Mod Podge and a foam applicator. I then used the Brocade Stencil and Golden crackle paste on the background. Once it dried, I sprayed some Glimmer spray in Frost on a piece of plastic bag, then sprayed on a bit of water to water it down and pressed the bag, spray side down onto the background to achieve a watercolor effect. I did this using the Mint as well until I got the coverage I wanted. I also die cut the butterflies from the Flutter dies and sprayed them with Frost and Mint to get a variegated color. Once they were dry, I adhered them to the background by the body only and slightly folded up the wings.
For the blossoms, I enhanced the darker blue ones with Glimmer Spray in Frost. For the lighter blue flowers, I sprayed them with Mint to change the color up a bit. I also die cut some blossoms and leaves from the Double Dot paper in Clove, then I sprayed them with the Frost and Mint
Glimmer sprays for a 2 toned effect. They dry to a gorgeous shimmer.
The wooden pieces were all primed using white acrylic paint. Once they were dry, I sprayed them with Frost and Mint. I arranged all of the pieces on my layout until I was pleased with the design and then I adhered everything down permanently. I used the stamps around the page in random spots, just for texture.
I had the photobooth strip photo of me and my kids for years. I scanned it, and printed it out on photo paper. I cut it apart, matted them on Double Dot paper in Clove, and popped the individual photos off the page for a dimensional look.
These colors just make my heart sing!
Thank you for joining me today. I will be back soon when Bo Bunny will be showcasing projects with the newest Spring collections. Until then, get out those wooden pieces and give them some color!!
