Spring Art Journal

     Today we welcome the first day of Spring, in all of it's splendor, with the flowers, birds, and colors, inspiring hope and new beginnings! Drea here with an art journal page to start off the season with some Dylusion's Paints and other mixed media from FotoBella.com.




     To the background, I glued down three craft feathers, and covered them with Prima Marketing Gesso (White). After drying, I used a paintbrush to apply Dyan Reaveley's Dylusion's Paints (Vibrant Vibrant Turquoise, Calypso Teal, Rose Quartz, Bubblegum Pink, Fresh Lime, Postbox Red, After Midnight, Crushed Grape, and Laidback Lilac). Then I applied the same gesso to the Stamperia Alchemy Moon Stencil, omitting the moon and stars, and turning it upside down, to frame my page. I later embossed over it with Ranger Mixed Media Powder (Bone). The leaves trailing down, were done with the Stamperia Lemons Stencil by applying gesso, and embossing with Ranger Mixed Media Powder (Lime). To add shadows, I outlined it with Dylusions Paint (Black Marble), also used with a Mini Blending Tool on top, to create the borders using an old Tim Holtz Mask.  


     I also used the Mini Blending Tool with Dylusion's Paint (White Linen) to create a ray of light onto the bird, followed by Prima Marketing Finnabair Unicorn Paste, which has beautiful chunks of glitter. The flowers were embossed with the Bo Bunny Floral Stamp, Prima Marketing Garden Fable Stamp, and the Stamperia Poppies Stamp, colored with the same paints, with beads added to some of the centers.



            All of the black embossing was done with Emerald Creek (Black Cherry) EP, with some of the new Prima Marketing Finnabair Stamps (Clear Stamp #4 and #5) used on the background. 




       I love the poppies, colored with the same paints from the background! 



     But the star of this page is the bird, cut with the Cricut Expression (Home Decor cartridge) onto white cardstock. Then I added a feather to the top layer wing, covered it with gesso, and colored it with Distress Spray Stains (Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet). The rest of the bird was colored with Dylusion's Paints, with Prima Finnabair Unicorn Paste added to the bottom layer. 


     Thanks for looking, and shop FotoBella.com to see what Spring inspires you to create!

Graphic 45 (Flutter) Art Journal Page

     Hello FotoBella Fans! Drea here with an art journal page featuring the gorgeous Graphic 45 (Flutter) I REALLY Want It All Bundle, that I combined with my Ranger Dyan Reaveley's Dylusion's Paints from FotoBella.com



     I started by tearing papers from the (Flutter) 8" X 8" Pad, since I worked in my smaller art journal, which measures 7" X 10". Then I cut the strip and title, and inked the edges with Distress Ink (Black Soot)




     The small Ephemera card with the bee, was also inked, before adding some Chipboard.



     Then I applied Prima Marketing Gesso (Black) to a stencil along the top and bottom left. 



      After cutting the butterfly from the Flutter 12 X 12 Paper Pack, came the fun part! Dylusion's Paints (Bubblegum PinkVibrant Turquoise, Cut Grass, Fresh Lime, Lemon Zest, Crushed Grape, and White Linen) slightly watered down, and applied with a brush and some sprays of water.

Bobunny world traveler card duo

Hi all. Jennifer Taylor here. I am stopping by today to share a couple of cute cards I made using the Bo bunny world traveler goodies. for both cards I started by making A2 sized cards from the world traveler polka dot paper by using one 12 x 12 sheet and some scraps to spare.  I added another polka dot paper on top then layered the stickers and added foam tape behind the added die cut for suitcase for dimension.

BoBunny world traveler airplane diecut cards


Hi all. Jennifer Taylor here. I am stopping by today to share a couple of cute cards I made using the Bo bunny world traveler goodies. for both cards I started by making A2 sized cards from the world traveler polka dot paper by using one 12 x 12 sheet and some scraps to spare. then for the first card I used the large airplane diecut from the ephemera pack and ten layered a chipboard sticker on top of that. next I cut out a heart from a border sticker and added a sticker strip to the bottom to finish the card.

Graphic 45 (Flutter) 2 Page Layout

     Flowers, bugs, butterflies, and bright colors mix beautifully, in the new Graphic 45 (Flutter) I REALLY Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.com! Drea here with a two page layout, showcasing this gorgeous collection that will leave you yearning for Spring.



     I was instantly inspired by this fabulous sketch by Noreen Smith, and knew the butterflies would make great replacements for the hearts. 




          To replicate the fence in the photos, I applied Prima Marketing Gesso (White) to a wood grain stencil, onto both sheets of Bazzill Cardstock (Quicksand) from the Flutter Coordinating Cardstock.  Then I spritzed it with Distress Spray Stain (Hickory Smoke) and KasierMist (Coffee) Spray, followed by Dylusions Paint (Slate Grey) that I just rubbed on with my fingers. 




     The neutral colors make a great backdrop to the colorful butterflies that I fussy-cut from the Flutter 12 X 12 Paper Pack



     I used a larger Ephemera card for my title, and inked the edges along with the patterned banner pieces, with Distress Ink (Black Soot).



     All of the banner pieces were machine-stitched with a crisp, white thread. 



     To make the Sticker borders fit onto both pages, I cut and pieced them to look like one continuous line behind the photos, using a ruler for a guide.

Day trip Bobunny world traveler




Hi all. Jennifer Taylor here. Today I am stopping by to share a page I made using the Bo bunny world traveler collection. I just loved the patterns in the 6 X 6 paper pad so I started with cutting some pie wedge pieces out of the pattern papers. I just sorta pieced them together to make a wonky circle.i distressed the edges and then layered on the ephermera and embellishments around my photo. I then added my big circle to the cool distressed polka dot paper and added a cluster into the top corner to finish my page.
