Creating textures with Die Cuts- Video Tutorial

Hello scrapper friends!  I love textures and I want to show you how I made them on this layout using die cuts. We all have die cuts on our stuff so let's use them to build layers and textures. I made a video tutorial of the process and I hope you have some inspiration.
I made this page with the Serendipity collection by Bo Bunny and Pentart products. I started making three doilies with the Mandalay die cut, then I adhered them to my base paper with Pentart Gel Paste.

I gave more textures with the Backsplash stencil,  the Primer Paste and the Sugar Glitter Paste.

I embellished the page using the Serendipity Noteworthy die cut pieces.

I love the combination of textures that  the doilies with the stencil bring to the page.

I added some Confetti paste and 3D Powder to create more textures on the background.

The lovely photo is from Unsplash.
Products I used:
Bo Bunny supplies:
Pattern Paper: Greetings, Life, Feathers
Die: Mandala Die, Ever After Card dies
Noteworthy: Serendipity

Glitter Paste: Sugar
Confetti Paste- Gold

Patina Effect Mixed Media Canvas

Hello everyone!  I have a mixed media canvas to share with today using the Creative Embellishments chipboard.  I love fairies and fantasy themes so I created a canvas with the Film Strip Picture and the Fairies chipboards. Let’s take a look…
I created a design using the chipboard Film Strip Pictures and added one of the pretty Fairies inside the big film strip.  Then I added the words Live, Happy from the Happy Word Set inside the other film strips. Then I gave two coats of gesso over all the chipboard pieces and the canvas.  Once it’s dry I gave the Patina effect .

I painted the chipboards with the turquoise color then I apply the textured mint green paint and finally I added  the brass color to create the Patina effect that it’s a trend lately .

I also added textures with art stones, micro beads, pearls, buttons, flowers and glass beads that I adhered with gel medium.

Other products I used:
Prima Marketing
Patina Effect Paste
Art Basics- Heavy Gesso, Gel medium
Micro Beads- Bronze
Art Stones

I had a lot of fun playing with the chipboard and the different mediums.  I hope you find some inspiration today.

Well let's talk about the challenge,  I will let you the inspiration photo down below and you just  need to be inspired by one element from the photo.  When I saw the photo of the July challenge I have been inspired by all the stars and the celebration theme.

I placed a piece of cheesecloth behind the chipboard and added art stones, mika flakes with gel medium.

And because it is a page about celebrate love I added the word love as my title from the Happy Word Set that I gave the same techniques that I made to the frame

Let the Sea set you free...Mixed Media Layout

Hello friends!   We all have different styles, some like simple things, others with more details or someone like me with lot of layers, paints and details.. I'm going to share with you today-one layout  in three ways with the new Down by the Sea collection and the new Spring stuff by Bo Bunny, let's take a look...

Hola amigos! Todos tenemos diferentes estilos, unos les gustan las cosas simples, otros con detalles o alguien como yo con muchas capas, pintura y detalles. Les voy a compartir hoy una pagina- tres maneras con la nueva coleccion  Down by the Sea de Bo Bunny, vamos a ver... 

This is my final project with many layers, stamping, mixed media product but before that I explain all the creative process let's go to see how I started in the next picture, working backwards with me.

Esta es mi proyecto finalizado con muchas capas, estampado, productos de mixed media pero antes de explicarles el proceso vamos a ver como comenze en la proxima foto, vamos a volver atras.

First Way #1
Primer Manera#1
I selected the Down by the Sea Seahorse as my base paper. Then I made a design with the chipboard and Noteworthy pieces, next I adhered the photo. It looks simple and clean.

Seleccione el papel Seashore como mi base.  Entonces hice un diseño usando los chipboards y die cuts, luego pegue la foto. Este se ve simple y limpio.

Second Way #2
Segunda Manera#2
Then I added color around all the design with Pentart Delicate Metallic and blue creamy acrylic paints. After drying, I gave textures with the Backsplash Stencils and the new Pentart Stencil Paste in Ice Flower color. Finally, I added white and blue paint splatters.

Entonces le añadi color alrededor de todo el diseño con las pinturas acrilicas de la marca Pentart.  Despues de seco, le di texturas con el stencil de Backsplash y el nuevo Pentart Stencil Paste en el color- Ice Flower. Finalmente, le añadi salpicaduras de pintura blancas y azules .

To take it to the next level (#3) I stamped randomly with the Doodles stamp and added yellow paint splatter for extra textures

Para llevarlo al proximo nivel (#3) Estampe al azar usando el Doodles sello y le añadi  salpicaduras de pintura amarilla para dar mas texturas.

I love the chipboard pieces, they look adorable and fun  and add just the right feel to this seaside layout scheme.

Me encanta las piezas de chipboard son adorables y divertidas y le dan el toque ideal de playa a la pagina.

 I added some Blue Hues Jewels and a well placed touches of  3D Balls that I adhered with Pentart Express Glue.
