Mixed Media fun with Bo Bunny! Template & another Video tutorial!

I'm so excited to be sharing with you another mixed media canvas I made up!
This one was for a "Field Trip Friday" assignment over at the Bo Bunny Blog (this is actually the first canvas I made up, they just got posted in a different order lol!)  The idea of 'Field Trip Friday' is to try something new that is different from the norm for you.  As I mentioned on my last field trip Friday post, I tend to be a 12x12 layout kinda gal so last time I did an OTP (off the page) project, and this time I did a mixed media canvas.  I used 'Gabrielle' collection papers for the background of the canvas (you can watch the video posted below on how I applied it all) and I used papers from the 'Little Miss' collection for the couture figure as well as some Bo Bunny Stamps and Rub-on's (Country Garden).

The quote I used for this one is...

"She turned her can'ts into cans
and her dreams into plans"

I got the quote...guess where?  Yep! Pinterest! ha! love that place!  I've got lot's of quotes saved on my quote board there if anyone is looking for some quote inspiration, you can find my Pinterest boards HERE.  The figure design was inspired by the book "Collage Couture" by Julie Nutting.  Here are a few close-ups of the page.... 


Below I've posted a copy of the template I drew up from the couture figure I sketched out if any of you would like to play with it!  So much fun picking out papers to create the cloths!  Try to keep the paper for the body in a neutral design (in the book I read the auther uses book print paper for the body, so cool!)    So you can just right click on the picture below and 'Save Picture As' to your computer, then print out the design on a piece of 8.5x 11 inch standard paper.  Cut out the pieces and trace them onto the patterned paper of your choice! and have some fun! xx
Okay....so here is my Video Tutorial on how I put this mixed media canvas together, I hope you have as much fun watching it as I had making it! xx


Thanks for stopping by!  Hope everyone has an amazing weekend! xx

Another absolutely fantastic project and a brilliant video tutorial. THANK YOU! I echo Barb above, it is very sweet and generous of you to share the template with us. I'm printing it off now and going to have a go in my journal.

I would love to know what sort of black pen you use? It seems to be just the right thickness and obviously works well over all the textures.

Can't wait for the next one!!! Have a lovely weekend.

Hi!
Loooove love love your work, so inspriational.
Just wondering, do you put any kind of finishing sealer or gloss on at the end or just leave it as is? Always wanted to try something like this but not very knowledgeable about the process.
Thanks :)
