Mixed Media with BoBunny

The new stencils and art mediums from BoBunny are so much fun to play with.  For this home decor project, I started with an 8.5x11" base, and just began experimenting with layers and colors.  Here's what I came up with:


































I love the mix of soft and bright color options. And the "stickability" of the stencils gives such crisp and fine details.  After inking over the lace stencils with the blueberry ink pad and letting it fully dry, I removed the stencils and sprayed the white space with Tutu and Gold glimmer sprays.












































I added a bit of text stenciling in black, and then layered washi tape, letters, and jewels over the top of the frame glass for added dimension.


























Hope you enjoy this bold decor idea, and that you take some time be creative in a new way!

Pretty Little Studio & Pinkfresh Studio

I am so excited to join in with a blog hop pairing two gorgeous companies - Pretty Little Studio and Pinkfresh Studio!  Pinkfresh Studio is known for their bright, bold, unique embellishments. And mixing them up with vintage-inspired paper products from Pretty Little Studio is a beautiful match.


Designers from both companies are joining in on this two-day blog hop, to share some amazing projects with you.  Make sure to visit and comment on each designer and company blog on the list to be entered into the giveaways.  A winner will be chosen each day, and will receive a $30 prize package from Pinkfresh Studio, and a $30 gift certificate from Pretty Little Studio.  Winners will be announced on 9/15/2014.

Onto the projects!  First, I created a butterfly-inspired card:


The orange/gold/mint washi tape from Pinkfresh is a lovely match for the orange/gold/mint palette of the new Marigold collection from Pretty Little Studio.



























Even the little rim around the brad sticker from Pinkfresh perfectly coordinates with the gold Pretty Little Studio labels.  It's like they're from the same collection, I love that!

Next up is a back-to-school layout:


































Here's another example of two perfectly-coordinated products: the PLS gold alpha and the PFS gold/mint alpha!  I love layering with papers and vellums from Pretty Little Studio, and that little owl is the perfect topper for this first-day pic.


























Thanks for joining in on my stop along the hop!  Up next is the super-talented and sweet  Ashley Horton.
