Back at the beginning of summer, I did a short promo video talking about what I wanted to do this summer - basically using all the stuff I've collected. One of the things I wanted to use was a small Bo Bunny chipboard mini. I bought it along with a larger one I did for my Mother of her older photos.
Being such a small size, I was stumped on what to do with it. I asked on a message board and someone suggested mixed media. I'd been thinking it would be fun to do something like this without much of a plan. Just play. I couldn't figure out what photos to use so I didn't use any. I used quotes. I found them on Pinterest. They are things that speak to me right now.
So here are some of the pages. There's also a video showing how I did many but not all of the pages. It goes at a faster pace than most of my videos. It isn't super detailed but shares many of the processes. And there are plenty of photos at the end. Here are a few.
At the beginning, I shared several stamps I planned to use. It was really the stencils I reached for over and over. the Be Free page uses a mix of gelatos and modeling paste.
This is my favorite page. The border is made up of clear Stickles alternated with silver Perfect Pearls. It was so easy and has a pretty overall look.
I did do a little stamping to create these leaves and flowers.
Here are those odds and ends Thickers! I just can't seem to make myself mix them up like this on a scrapbook page.
The background here didn't quite go like I wanted so I stenciled over some gesso to fix it.
The yellow modeling paste was left over from one of the other pages.
And here is the video on YouTube:

So I have this by my bedside so I can look at quotes. It was a fun and freeing project. Thanks for stopping by!
