Down by the Sea and Pentart Crackle systems!-With Marilyn

Hello everyone!   It's Marilyn here and today I made this super fun mixed media canvas with the new Down by the Sea collection and Pentart Crackle Products.

I had to work on a underwater scene with this adorable mermaid. First, I covered the canvas with the "Tide" paper. I cut out the mermaid from the Fantasy paper that I adhered with gel medium to the canvas.

I gave textures with the new Fancy Flourishes Stencils and Pentart Primer Paste in White. I adhered the 3D Powder with the Express liquid glue to give the sand effect you see here.

I painted the canvas with the Creamy Acrylic Paint by Pentart and I applied the Pentart Crackle product on the borders.  I have a suggestion for you, it produces a better result if you let it dry naturally, don't use the heat gun.

For the background I stamped with the Take Note Stamp and a permanent ink. The layered chipboard from the Down the Sea collection looks adorable on my canvas.

Serendipity-Craft Dies and Thick Stencils with Solange

Hello BoBunny fans!! It's Solange Marques here!

Today I'll share with you a layout on three ways using Serendipity collection. I love this collection!

I've used an old photo from my grandchildren, they grow so fast...

On the first step I placed the photo on the page and I prolonged it with acrylic paints blending it on the background. I cut out some birds and nests from Serendipity papers and glued on the page.

On the second step I added stamps, dies and a contrast paper on the base.

But I've needed something more...

Then I shadowed the birds and nests with black gesso. I applied Pentart stencil paste on the new clock stencil and I applied Pentart metallic paint on the title and I moved it of the place. I added some laces.
and for a last step, I added some butterflies.

Craft Essentials with Marilyn

Hello Everyone! It's Marilyn here and today. I'll share this mixed media page that I made using the new dies and the new Serendipity collection.

I used the Mandala Die to make 3 doilies that I adhered with Pentart- Gel paste to my base paper (Feathers) to create textures and a design. I added more textures with the backsplash stencil with Primer Paste- Gesso and Sugar Glitter Paste

I embellished my page with The Noteworthy die cut pieces and I selected one of this piece as my title.

I love the effect and the textures that the doilies give to the background. I cut out the bird house from the Greeting paper

I apply the Gold Confetti Paste and 3DPowder with Gel Paste, you can see all the textures from this angle.

Cards and Stencils and Dies. . . Oh My! with Ginny

Hey There my BoBunny Peeps! I'm sharing some fun cards today that I created with the new Spring Collection - Weekend Adventures and some yummy mixed media supplies.

Mixed Media Card Set By Ginny Nemchak Using BoBunny Weekend Adventures and Pentart

I super love this collection for it's bright cheery colors and whimsical images and patterns.  Both of these cards were created with Weekend Adventures but they look so different.

Mixed Media Card Set By Ginny Nemchak Using BoBunny Weekend Adventures and Pentart

For this first card I wanted to create the background so I pulled out the stamps and stencils and set to work creating a mixed media style that complimented the charming bear image. I incorporated a doily die to separate the busy patterns then topped off the sentiment  with jewels and a chipboard banner. The balloons have foam spacers to add dimension.

More spacers here to attach the hot air balloons that were part of the Noteworthy set. I've enhanced the images with a variety of colors of Glitter Paste and layered them over a sweet heart die. A few hearts tucked behind and this card is ready to mail to someone special.

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

Down by the Sea Party Papercrafts with Irit

 Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit here today and I am going to celebrate Summer with my Down by the Sea Mermaid Party projects.

I am not a real " themed parties person". Usually our party is all about food and drinks and some simple decorations.

But when I have a mood and  great paper supplies I am more than happy to make a whole line of party decorations. And with BoBunny new Down by  the Sea collection this was amazing fun to make fun decor for the party!

As you can see I made the main banner (close- up shown later in this post).

I added a few napkin rings (just the sample; you need to make much more for the real party). I also made the samples of lovely place cards and two large toppers that can be used for the cake or for the flowers central piece or  just for any purpose .

The toppers were made with the circle hand cut base and Mandala die cut. Then  the chipboard hand cut flag was added and covered with another patterned cardstock from this delicious collection.The flag was added to Mandala with BoBunny Aqua brads.

One of the toppers was finished with a layered chipboard and second with cardstock cut.

The napkin rings were die cut with new Darling Doily die from the patterned Down by the Sea cardstock and this cardstock is just perfect as you can cut 9 different Mermaids from one single cardstock sheet and to make 9 napkin rings.  I added the die cut doilies over the circle die cut from Mystical cardstock.

The place cards were made from a solid piece of Plunge cardstock with Sweetheart die cut and then the die cut piece was glued over the negative space with some gap as shown.

I added a piece of chipboard strip over each card and then one of the Fancy tags die cuts was added as the place for the name.

And now for some close- ups of the banner.

I hand cut the huge flags and added the second and the third flag layers over the basic layer.

The edges were glittered with the new Seafoam Glitter paste and the second layer edges were painted with new Pentart Delicate Dark gold acrylic paint.

 Some texture was added on this flag with new Summer Days stencil (waves) and Ice Flower Pentart stencil paste.

Then some chipboards and Noteworthy die cuts were added over the piece.

The second  flag was made in the same way around the edges. I added some Turquoise Glitter paste with  my favorite BoBunny dotted stencil and then added the large chipboard frame and saying,

The third and central flag was made as a shaker piece  and you can see the inside sequins and beads under the transparency.Some Ice Flower paste dots were added on the external flag.

The next piece was stencilled in the same way with Seafoam Glitter paste and chipboard piece were added to embellish this part of my banner.

The last piece was made in the same way as the first one using Flower Fun stencil to add the dimension.

Serendipity-Paper Crafting into Home Decor with Elena S.

Hello everyone!  It's me, Elena S. here today with you with an extra blog post for some additional ideas and inspiration. I want to show you soft gentle throw pillows with use of a wonderful gentle beautiful collection Serendipity! These pillows can be put for appearance in the nursery, to decorate a children's holiday party, or just to present as a gift! They great look and will present many good emotions and warm feelings!  The same theme can be used again on a card, art canvas or scrapbook page, no matter what it is a pretty end result,.

At first I have sewed pillows, have decorated them with laces, have inside put a synthetic  form for softness. 

The Serendipty paper palette is very gentle and you can see that the pink tones prevail. Therefore I have taken fabric similar to our collection. looks very nice!

For composition I have taken a wonderful collection Serendipity. With it I used the lovely patterned paper, Noteworthy, Chipboard, Layered chipboard and chipboard. I have painted some of the chipboard with the wonderful Delicate Acrylic Paint Rose Gold Pentart products!

Very stunning and lovely end result! I am excited!

  Pillows have turned out with multilayered composition that looks perfectly! All these nests and birdies! Really the look and feel of warm summer!

Take a closer look . . .

Second gentle pillow

On the chipboard it is visible as it is perfectly applied, Delicate Acrylic Paint Rose Gold.

For summer composition I have added a little sisal because there are birdies and nests

 Have a nice day!
