Adventure Mixed Media Layout-Bo Bunny 2nd Round Audition

Hello everyone!  Today I share with you one of the projects that I made for the Bo Bunny 2nd Round audition. They sent me a box with the Take a Hike collection and many awesome products. I couldn't resist and made two projects and two video tutorial but today I share the first one, take a look..

My son Xander went to the Blowing Rock Mountain here in NC and these photos go perfect for this collection. I selected the Nature paper from the Take a Hike collection as my base paper that I prime with the Bo Bunny gesso.
One thing that I loved is the stickable stencils, it was so easy to work with. Adding gesso to the cloud stickable stencil gave me these beautiful textured clouds.
You will see all the creative process in the video tutorial.

The title is one of the Noteworthy Journaling cards.

I added buttons, chipboards and brads from the same collection.

I mixed the chipboard with the cardstock stickers. I create some pearl drops using the Pearlescent Dimensional Paint by Bo Bunny.

Bo Bunny Supplies list:
Pattern Paper-Take a Hike collection: Nature paper
6 x 6 Paper Pad: Nature, Happy Trails papers
Chipboard- Chipboard stickers, Layered Chipboard Stickers
