Good morning artsy peeps! I am super excited to share this sweet project I made for todays CHA Paper Arts Blog Hop! All week long several CHA Designers will be working with different CHA Manufacturers to bring you lots of fun projects and tutorials! Oh and did I mention prizes? But I digress…
I was thrilled to find out I would be working with Bo Bunny! As soon as I saw these beautiful Juliet papers I was inspired to make this mixed media little girl. She stand almost 18 inches and is covered in the various paper designs from the Juliet Collection by BoBunny!
To make this project I drew my girl, traced it onto various patterned papers and foam core board, cut them out and glued the pieces back together! Here are some details;
To create her skin and hair I used gesso and various Gelatos® Colors to paint her features on the polka dot paper collection from BoBunny. The sweet flower in her hair is also BoBunny! Easily attached with a little Gel Medium.
Of course I added this little bunny in honor of the Bo Bunny name! Tip*to make pieces pop, make sure you ink the edges! Did you notice the little pocket? I added a little pearl flourish! (Also Bo Bunny).
Did you notice her sparkly ruby red shoes? The paper is from a Juliet 6×6 paper pad – same paper as her dress just a little smaller. Then I topped it of with a little Bo Bunny glitter paste – the color is blush and although it’s pink it really shines on top of red!
And last but not least I made her sweet little slip with a few Bo Bunny doilies cut in half! I hope you enjoyed my project today!
