Serendipity and Mixed Media Fun by Emmy


Hello BoBunny Fans!

Emmy here with a brand new mixed-media layout featuring one of BoBunny's latest collections Serendipity, stencils and glitter paste.


To create my background I used pattern papers from the Serendipity collection and various Pentart mixed-media products.

For the brick wall-like pattern I used the Backsplash thick stencil and Structure paste. 


Then I tore a stripe of corrugated cardstock and soften the kraft colour a bit using Gesso. 



Finally, I added a touch of green Glitter Paste...



... and silver confetti paste.



Here are more close ups of my project:

Mixed Media Travel Journal with Rhonda

Rhonda

Monday greetings to you! It's time for a bit of fun with Mixed Media today. I've created a Travel Journal featuring the Down By The Sea collection.

This travel journal features Gold Confetti Paste, Stamping, Stencils with Silver Glitter Paste, Pearlescents and some Pentart 3D Balls make an appearance as well. The coordinating accents include Chipboard, Noteworthy and some of the DoubleDot Jewels for accent.

I love the subtle sparkle that the Gold Confetti Paste adds. I also stamped lightly and then splattered a touch of Gold Glimmer Spray. To color the Pentart 3D Balls, they were placed into a small zipper plastic baggie, added a tiny amount of Chocolate and Sugar Pearlescents and rolled them until I had the color I wanted. I then laid them out to dry.

The finishing touches were some drops of Pearlescents added here and there to create more texture. They were also placed into the cheese cloth. I hope you've enjoyed my little travel journal.

Sunday Funday Mermaid Party with Ginny


Happy Sunday Funday BoBunny Peeps! I'm dropping in to share some party inspired projects with the fabulous Down By The Sea Collection. I was thinking to myself what would be more fun than a mermaid party? Obviously a party with these awesome mermaid wands and a crown. So I channeled the five year old in me and created these whimsical accessories.

Mermaid Party Crown and Wands by Ginny Nemchak using BoBunny Down By The Sea Collection and Pentart Supplies
The mermaids were the focal images so I added them to all the pieces.

Mermaid Party Crown and Wands by Ginny Nemchak using BoBunny Down By The Sea Collection and Pentart Supplies
Who doesn't want to wear a crown on their Birthday? For this I simply cut (2)  6 x 12 inch strips then joined them on one end and cut a scallop at the top. After deciding what would be a good fit for a small persons head I joined the other side to create the crown.  I accented the top simply by dipping my finger in some Brilliant Blue Pearlescents and just ran it around the front and back. Next came the mermaid image and sentiment then it was topped off with coordinating BoBunny Blossoms and Double Dot Jewels.  Last but not least some eyelash trim to give the impression of netting.

These mermaid wands are for the guests to enjoy and have matching images as the crown.  The patterned papers are cut and stacked with foam spacers between the layers.The edges were finished like the crown by finger painting with Pearlescents. I colored some Pentart 3D Powder with more of the Brilliant Blue then adhered it to the bottom of the top circle. Once dry I dabbed some Gold and Caribbean Glitter Paste to accent it and give the illusion of water. More of the eyelash trim was wound around and secured.  I created fun accents for the wands by trimming thin strips of the paper and winding them around a pen to create spirals then tucked them in behind the top circle.  It's topped off with a shimmery ribbon bow and flowers that were finished with more of the Glitter Paste.

 For the handle of the wand I used straws that already had a stripe and just embellished it with more of the Brilliant Blue and Gold Glitter. This did take a little patience....but well worth the happy smiles for some cute kiddos when they get to be mermaids for the day : )

Okay that's all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

"Exploding" Papercrafts with Angela


Hi Dear Crafty Friends,
It's Angela here today.  Even if I'm half melted by the hot Italian summer, I won't stop crafting with you!
Today, I will show you a kind of exploding box I've made for a wedding of a friend of mine, using the beautiful Serendipity papers. Oh, it's such an inspiring collection!


Exploding Birdhouse by Angela Tombari using BoBunny Serendipity Collection

It has a birdhouse shape, to symbolize the new nest of the newlyweds, and when you open it...

... a flying bird fall down from the roof. The surprising effect is assured! :)

This bird comes from the Serendipity Noteworthy and it's absolutely stunning!
It's tied with an iron string embellished with a few pearls, white and gold.

This is the base when it opens and it has space to contain three photos; probably I'll put some pics taken at the wedding.
The "Happily Ever After" quote is a die, as well as the leaves garland around the nest. Actually, the garland is a square die, but I easily glued it down in a round shape.

At the center I positioned a nest surrounded with a cluster of embellishments. The flowers are stamped and fussy cut, while the butterflies are always from the Noteworthy pack.

A few embellishments on the outside too, around the round window, to complete the birdhouse box and voilà, the exploding birdhouse box is completed!
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you enjoyed the project.
See you soon.
Love,

Angela
