I have this photo that is not the perfect one but it means a lot to me, well you know when you have a photo that you love because it reminds you happy memories, a great time but at the same time you know isn't the ideal pic for a page but you don't care because you want to preserve the memory....yes it is the case, lol!!! 
 I'm dancing with my dear friend Noris in this picture, we were celebrating my last day in Colombia, last August..
This page will be frame on my wall for makes me smile! :)
This map paper is my favorite from the Rose quartz collection by Frank Garcia for Prima Marketing that it's featuring this month in the Limited Edition kit. 
I also cut out some leaves and flowers with foil from the papers of the same collection.

I gave textures with the stencil's kit and modeling paste.
I used a puncher to make the circular doily behind the photo and gave color with distress inks.
I place my title near to the Colombia map ;)

Paradise Beach LO & Video Tutorial

Hello everyone! I hope you are fine! Today I share with you a beach page and video tutorial that I made with the new Make a Splash collection by Bo Bunny and Pentart products.
Let's take a look...

This new Make a Splash collection is colorful and beautiful, perfect for the summer projects. This lovely photo is about my SIL and nieces at the beautiful beach in Puerto Rico. You know that when we open an envelope with photos, it's like all the memories jump out and that was my idea when I designed this page.  I started this layout by tracing and cutting an envelope from the paper. You will see all the process in the video tutorial.

To create the effect of the waves crashing on the shore, I applied the Pentart Primer Paste Gesso, then I added textures with a stencil and the same Gesso.

The Make a Splash chipboard pieces add so much fun to my page.

I created additional textures with the 3D powder and balls. I applied the iron paste over the netting and the cord to create a rustic and beachy look, much like a fisherman's net

I criss-crossed the word Beach from the chipboard pieces through the cord.

Bo Bunny Supplies:

Make a Splash pattern papers: Sayings, Ocean, Sand Castle
Make a Splash Noteworthy
Make a Splash Chipboard
Summertime-Stickable Stencils

Pentart Supplies:

Iron Paste red brown
Primer Paste Gesso
3D Powder

Be the Light Canvas- Bo Bunny

Hi there!! Here's a fine art project that I made for Bo Bunny with the new Faith collection. I love the messages, design and colors in this collection 
and the Faith paper was my inspiration to create this canvas. Sometimes we have difficult situations in our life but not matter how hard it is or how dark it looks, we need to be strong. to have faith, to be the Light and it was my inspiration...

I started applying a coat of Penart white gesso over all the canvas. While the canvas is drying, I'm going to cut out images from the papers like the bulb, butterflies and the girl.  Then I painted the half top of the canvas in similar colors to the Faith paper and for that I mixed the Pentart Creamy Acrylic- Baroque Gold & Trumpet Flower and for the bottom of the canvas I mixed the Nimbus and Blue colors.
I create textures and a design around the bulb image with cheesecloth, the stickable Lots of Love stencil and gesso.

I also added textures on the  bottom sides of the canvas with the same stencil and the Pentart Lansur Gel in country green color. I painted one flower from the Harvest Orange Dahlia package with orange paint and put on the girl's hair.

I apply Black Crackle paste by Bo Bunny on the edges of my canvas, I wanted to see the different colors through the crackle effect.

You can see here the crackle effect that are in all the borders and it's hard to see on the photos. I stamped some words with the Be The Light Stamp on a blue paper from the same collection.

I used markers to paint her face and waterproof pen to enhance her eyes and lashes. I adhered all the images with gel medium.  Finally, I added white paint splatters over all the canvas..
Bo Bunny Supplies:

Patter Paper: Faith, Heaven Sent,Courage

Stamp: Be The Light, Butterfly Kisses

flower: Harvest Orange Dahlia

Stickable Stencil: Lots of Love

Crackle Black Paste

Pentart Supplies:

A mixed media box and Layout- Bo Bunny

Hello everyone!  Thank you so much for all your kind comments in my previous post you make my day! :)  Today I share with you two projects that I created with the Felicity collection by Bo Bunny. The first one is a mixed media box that bought it  in my local Dollar Tree store and I altered using Bo Bunny and Pentart products...

I covered the lid of the box and the bottom borders with the Serendipity paper and the rest of the box with the Wonderful paper.

I added textures on the box's lid with the Lace Stickable Stencil and the Bo Bunny gesso. I cut out many flowers from the Lattice paper to make the dimensional flower on the top.  Finally, I added some Penart 3D Balls with the Express glue and  made some dots with the Sugar Pearlecents.

Felicity collection papers: Serendipity, Lattice, Wonderful
Sugar Pearlescents
Penart - 3D Ball, Express Glue

"These Precious Moments" Layout
 I made a mixed media page with lot of layers and many different dimensions. I worked with the Felicity collection.   I specifically chose the Felicity Lattice paper and with a craft knife I cut some of the flowers as you can see in the photo below. I also cut out some flowers from the Felicity  and some clocks from the Serendipity papers.
I worked with the 3L Crafty Foam Tape to create dimension in my flowers, the clocks and my photo . This foam tape is perfect-not too bulky or too flat and is the perfect dimension and the best thing is it's a strong adhesive.

"These Precious Moments" is a sticker from the Combo Stickers sheet from the same collection that I matted with a piece of paper and used as my title. 

You can see from this angle the dimension in the layers. I added textures in the background with the Flower Power Stickable stencil and white gesso. Then I painted with acrylic paints and added the 3D balls with gel medium from Pentart products.

Bo Bunny Supplies:
Felicity Collection- Pattern papers: Felicity, Lattice, Serendipity,
Felicity Combo Stickers
Bo Bunny White Gesso

3L Scrapbook Adhesives Supplies:
Crafty Foam Tape

Pentart Supplies:
3D balls, Creamy Acrylic-blue, Primer Paste gesso white
