Bo Bunny Home Decor

Hello Bo Bunny Friends,

Amy here to show you a lovely home d├ęcor idea you could do with some of your new Pentart Antique Paints.

To start with I gathered together chipboard flags I want to put on my wall.

Using Pentart Antique Crackle Paint System I painted the background and let dry. Then I sanded the edges to create an even more worn look.



From here I gathered 2 of the Pentart contour line paints and created a pattern on the edges. I was inspired by the borders of the Petal Lane collection and frames.
 Once dry I dripped a Pentart Media ink and let it spread into the cracks and edges.
 Finally I clustered with my Petal Lane embellishments and blooms to and it is ready to place on the wall OR add some photos.

I hope you enjoyed my Petal Lane Flags as much as I loved creating them.

Stay Scrappy
Amz

ColourBlast Christmas Layout

Hello Colour Blast friends,

Today Amy L here would like to show you how to add a little Mica and Shimmer dust effects to your layouts.

Step 1- Gather together 3 powders of choice. For this layout I have used Colour Watermelon Mica Dust, Colour Polar Mica Dust and Colour Candy Shimmer Dust.

Step 2 - Mix 2 lots of each colour. One set with a larger amount of water creating a duller colour and one set with a smaller amount of water created a stronger colour

 Step 2 - Using a water colour brush spread your duller dust mixture abstractly over the page. Drip in clusters with the stronger colour making sure to spread it outside of your embellishment clusters
 Step 3 - Once dry stick down your desired embellishments and photos. I hope you have a try at this technique.

Bo Bunny Aryia Garden Layout

Hello Bo Bunny friends,

Amy here to show you the fun you can have with the Wax Pastes.

For this layout I wanted to add a little dimensional by spreading the bitumen and metallic Antique wax paste across the page. Now you this will resist water so if you want to add watercolor paint perhaps do that first. Or use it as a resist effect.

I then added my photo and cluster my embellishments so that the paste is not covered. By spacing out flowers you can add a feminine feel to the layout

 And below is the full layout called Wonderful.

Stay Scrappy 

Materials Used - Pentart Antique Wax Paste Bitumen
Pentart Antique Wax Paste Metallic
BoBunny Aryia Garden I Want It All 12" paper x2
Bo Bunny Aryia Garden Poetry 12" Paper
Aryia Garden Noteworthy
Aryia Garden Chipboard

Summer ColourBlast

Hello Sweet Colour Blast Friends,

Amy here with another layout this time adding dimension to your already fabulous traditional scrapbook layout. I am a paper crafter first and was introduced to mixed media by being convinced to join a class with paint and BOOM thats when my world opened up. You can still layer paper and add some dimension with your mixed media. Let me show you how.

With this layout I used Shimmer Dust Lush mixing it with a little water I altered a patterned cardstock by brushing it all over the piece. This brought a different watercolour look the already gorgeous cardstock. I then used Colour Blast Paste called Deep Water and using a sweet flower stencil layered in on several pieces of card stock. Then layering the card stock and matching embellisments. I created the above layout


The great part about colourblast paste is the more intricate the stencil the better the design. This is a sweet perfect flower that is a beautiful contrast against the white cardstock.

Materials Used

Colourblast paste and shimmer dust
Cocoa Vanilla Summer Range
Studio 1440 flair
Cutfile from Silhouette America

Always and Forever Bo Bunny

Hello BoBunny friends,

Amy with you today showing you how to create a gorgeous layout using the fabulous Petal Lane collection. And then using Pentart Lasur paint to show you how you can add extra dimension to your paper.

Lets begin Layout 1
When creating with your dies or cutfiles remember you can always layer underneath to fill the gaps. This cutfile I used 2 other pieces of cardstock both sides to fill in the flower.

Now Layout 2 - Fussy fussy fussy cut
This is for the paper hoarder like myself who always gets 2 of every cardstock. I fussy cut around the flower borders to create an extra layer for those flowers. You will need to raise your photo onto foam adhesive as well as your fussy cut so you can appreciate the detail later on.

Layout 3 - Lets get messy with Pentart Lasur

No I would like to show you how much fun it is to paint with Pentart Lasur for Interior on you layout to add that va va voom. Instead of using your enamel dots that I know you are keeping use the back of your paint brush and with the pointy end create of dots around your layout. Adding that yellow paint has tied in the other yellow just that little more.

So here you are One Layout 3 ways using Petal Lane and Pentart Lasur.

Stay Scrappy
Amy

ColourBlast Backyard!

Hello Colour Blast Friends,

A different and just as fabulous Amy here to share my first every design for the amazing Colourblast. I am going to do my best and hopefully inspire you to use those lovely little pots a little more often with your scrapbook layouts.

For this background you will need a mosiac stencil, Tangareen Dream Colour Paste ,
Colour Shimmer Dust Candy and Sunflower
and water. (perhaps in a spray bottle)


Start with your stencil diagonal down the page and smear on your Colour Paste. Don't be shy we all love this stuff. Once that has dried enough spray on water liberally on the page. Dust a tiny bit of Candy and Sunflower Colour Shimmer Dust over different parts of your page and tilt your page so it will dribble. Spray more water if you need to. It will warp but once it is in your album it will re flatten

Once that all dries layer your photo and little pieces of matching card. I used snippets from 4 6x4 cards to create the clusters around my photo.
Journal with a good pen and feel free to draw a border around your background.

Here is Backyard 

Materials- Flutterby Designs
-Stash

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial

Bo Bunny Winter Wishes

Hello there My Crafty Friends,

Today I wanted to show you some sweet cards I created using the Winter Wishes collection. The beautifully vintage style is perfect layering your layouts and cards.


 This pop up card is layered with noteworthy, layered chipboard and noteworthy pieces creating a beautiful vintage cluster.
This card is a cutfile with a thin perspex like material great for the new pentart glass paint to stencil on. 

With your Pentart glass paint you can be assured that your medium is acid free and will stay on.
 These cards would be great for a special friend you would like to send best wishes too. Sending a physical card is always more precious than a Facebook message.

Thank you for stopping by
