Make A Splash and Pentart Iron Paste with Kathi



Hello BoBunny Fans!

Kathi here to share my layout 3 ways, using Make a Splash patterned paper with Pentart Iron Paste, and BoBunny Glitter Paste, Glimmer Spray, and Gesso.

12 X 12 "Floating" patterned paper is the base paper for the layout, and "Happy"patterned paper was used to create the water pipe. Sentiments from the "Sayings" pattered paper were cut out and placed along the left side of the page.

On layout 1- waves were cut out from the patterned paper "Sandcastle" and layered on the bottom. A hint of glimmer spray was sprayed on to soften the waves. I created a water pipe from the patterned paper "Happy"and Iron paste was used to create the pipe connectors, I applied the iron paste using a paint brush. Gold pearlescent dots finished the pipe connectors on each water pipe.


On layout 2 - the waves were distressed with a royal blue chalking ink before placing it on the bottom  of the page.  "Frost" Glimmer spray was lightly spayed on the base layout.


On layout 3 - the waves were distress as in layout 2 , then "Caribbean" glitter paste was added to highlight the waves. Under the photo and top of the pipe I created a design to look like a chain link fence. I used the "Cascade" stickable stencil and "Frost" glimmer spray. Under the sayings I stenciled fish using white gesso and "Under the Sea" Stickable Stencil. I finished off the layout  using chipboard & noteworthy shapes


Thanks for stopping by today!

Marilyn's layout with Make a Splash and Iron Paste


 Hello everyone!

Marilyn here with you today sharing  a mixed media layout and a video tutorial that I made with the Make a Splash collection and Pentart products.We are mixing it up a bit today and doing Mixed Media instead of One Layout Three Ways today!  Starting here!


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.

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.

Here's the video tutorial, I hope you find some inspiration! Enjoy it!

Make a Splash with accents of Iron paste by Pentart with Ayumi


Hello Bo Bunny Friends,
 Today I will introduce a paper frame and easel featuring the Make a Splash collection from Bo Bunny with Pentart Iron Paste.

Fun Paper Frame


First, I will prepare the easel, with Iron Paste (Gray) and Transparent Wax Paste.


Apply to easel.


The look of the wooden easel is dramatically changed by painting it with gray Iron Paste.



Then, using a little ingenuity and my scoring tool, I will make a paper frame.

The red line is a folding line . . . .


Fold along the red dotted lines

And I also used bits and pieces of the Layered Chipboard package.  I fussy cut the palm tree, and the Most people throw this away, but the design is cute enough to use on a project!


I drew a dot pattern with a Sparkling Gold Contour Liner. 
It finishes gorgeously.

Thanks for joining me today. 

Have a fabulous day!

Misc Me! Monday featuring Make A Splash and Pentart Iron Paste with Denise


Hello BoBunny Fans

It's Denise here today to share my Misc.Me! spreads, using Make a Splash and Pentart Iron Paste.

These spreads are of Christmas and New Year 2015/2016 and my family around the pool. Our Christmas and New Years are normally hot and sunny. and so being around the pool is a definite!

I didn't have "beachy" type photo's but this collection was perfect for "by the pool" too.

Here's my first page.

I fussy cut a lot of the elements above from the gorgeous and sunny patterned paper.

There was a super, stripey paper and so thought I would do some journaling along the stripes.  I think it looks cool at an angle. I also used some iron paste and a Stickable Stencil to add the corner accent.

I, again, used some of the iron paste above to create sun-like accents.  It actually dries really quickly and holds its shape perfectly.

Here's some close-ups of the iron paste stenciling.

Have a super day!

Make A Splash and Pentart Iron Paste with Katherine


Hello, Katherine here with some party ideas using the really cute Make a Splash collection, don't the penguins just make you smile?

I've created this little treat boxes that you could use for parties, or just little gifts...or maybe Easter eggs, jelly beans, or just chocolate.

Gift Box Party by Katherine Sutton using BoBunny Make a Splash

The 6" pad is the perfect size for this project, here is a little tutorial to explain how I made them, and also to give you a few of my favourite tips.


Gift Box Party by Katherine Sutton using BoBunny Make a Splash

Take your 6" piece of paper and then score at 2 7/8" and 5 3/4"


Gift Box Party by Katherine Sutton using BoBunny Make a Splash

Fold and crease the score lines, add some tape (any good double sided tape works well) along the 1/4" flap on the patterned side.


Gift Box Party by Katherine Sutton using BoBunny Make a Splash

Add a piece of double sided tape what will become the bottom edge of the box (don't worry about the top edge as we secure this with ribbon later).  My top tip here, is before sticking, just bend up a small part of the double sided tape backing paper and fold it out as in the photo.  Then fold your 6" paper along the centre score line and stick it together using that 1/4" flap.  You then need to seal the bottom piece of your box, so this is where you will notice you have that little bit of backing paper sticking out, so you just pull it and you'll be able to seal the bottom really easily.

At the open end of the box, bend the top so that  it makes a diamond shape and push the 2 sides together.

Hold the 2 sides together and punch 2 holes in them - this is where you will secure the top with some ribbon, so they are easy to open.

I created tags using the Vacation paper and trimming them to be a tag shape.  To add a bit more glamour I also cut out several penguins from the Lazy Days paper and added some sparkle with the Pentart Iron Paste, it has a more subtle look than the glitter, but gives the black skin of the penguins a really nice shimmer.

I attached he tags with twine to the top hole, and just played layering up lots of cut-outs to make each pack individual.

They are really easy to open and you can fill them with all sorts of goodies!

Petal lane and Pentart Antique Paste with Emmy


Hello BoBunny fans!

Emmy here today with a brand new layout to share with you! This week it is all about the Petal Lane collection on BoBunny's blog and Pentart Antique Paste.


And here are some close ups of my project: 

Use Stickable Stencil and Structure Paste to alter your background paper. Once the paste has dried, flick some Glimmer Spray using a painting brush. Add extra pattern using Clear Stamps. I especially love the tiny musical staff and notes.  it employs such a CUTE pattern, without being overdone.




Layer die-cut elements together with chipboard pieces to achieve 3D effect. Decorate them with Double Dot Jewels.










For my title I used a wooden laser cut word. I colored with Pentart Antique Paste in Copper- add a few layers of paste to achieve a perfect coverage, and a really nice subtly shimmery look.








I hope I managed to inspire you today! 

Come back soon for more amazingly creative projects from our design team and of course Bo Bunny!!

Emmy xx
