Dropping in today to share with you a BoBunny layout that was shared over on their blog a couple of weeks ago. I was asked to create a layout with the Soiree collection and their new decoupage paper. The amazing fun decoupage paper that has endless possibilities and the new Ornate Doily dies.
I wanted to play around and see how well the decoupage paper would cut with the BoBunny dies. I am happy to share that they work wonderfully together. You need to be gentle separating the die from the paper, but the cuts turns out beautifully. So I decided I would cut a couple of the doily dies to use as matting for my flower cluster.
I thought I would also share a little of my process of how I created the background paper quickly. If you have not dabbled in any mixed media yet you really are missing out on so much fun.
Bo Bunny has just released a ton of new product to make mixed media a breeze for everyone, from spatulas to gesso and everything in between.
So to start with I brushed on a layer of white gesso over the background paper.
Are you still with me ?? :)
Then to start blending all the layers to the background paper I grabbed my watercolours and added 3 different colours to match. Then it was time to start embellishing. And below you can see the final result. If you look closely at the top left flower cluster you can see the subtle decoupage paper die I cut which is perfect to build a cluster on. I also used the decoupage paper as another layer under my photo.
Thanks so much for stopping by today..
Till next time
