Game On! and Pentart Lasur Gel Indoor with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Technique Tuesday post today!

Let's say that I am not much of a sports lover. Maybe even the totally opposite? So making a sport collection project has been an interesting challenge for me.  But, I think (and I hope you agree) that I found the way to make it fun an even to give it  one of my family members who loves sports!

So  also we are talking about techniques today.  So, this is not a real tutorial, but mostly some tips and tricks that I discovered while I was making this piece.

Here how it looks on the wall, also it will be moved from my wall and delivered to my dear son-in-law in a couple of days.

Sports Wall Decor by Irit Shalom

This was the bare wood dollar store three part frame with corkboard on the top, wooden frame in the middle and a cute little box for the bottom section.

While making this piece I managed to remake the cork into a half of a magnetic board.

The photo frame was remade to chalk board and the box is still the box.

So, first I painted  the whole piece with Pentart Cottage Green Lasur Indoor gel. This stuff is neat to use as it colors the wood but still lets the grain show through

I really love this "not so perfect" look of the wood that you get with this paint.   I painted one single layer and decided to leave it this way.

The middle portion was painted with two layers of chalkboard paint. Yes, this is glass chalkboard paint and here is my first tip: it WORKS-perfectly even on the wooden surface.

Then I decided to leave half of the cork as is and to paint another half with magnetic paint.

It was another experiment and also I had to make three layers-it WORKS!

Here is the second tip for today: Pentart Magnetic paint works on soft cork surface as well.

Now, time for embellishing the painted piece.

I added small strong magnets over the chipboard piece without peeling the backing. If you want to peel the white glossy backing paper you need to add some baby powder over the glued side of those sticky chipboard pieces.

And here is another tip: BoBunny small chipboards make perfect quick in a minute magnets!

If you want  them to last forever cover them with a thick layer of Pentart Glossy Varnish.

First I tried to use chalk marker over the painted chalkboard part. The result was really disappointing.

So I tried the white pen and BINGO! You can use white pen and to wipe it off with a baby wipe. It works perfectly .

So I just added the white pen on the side using clear Velcro strip.

As you can see each part was also decorated with clear sticker.

And the last part was decorated with stickers, chipboards and handmade tags made with BoBunny craft dies.

So not much techniques to learn, but a lot of good tips to keep in mind while you work with Pentart products.

And a final look at this altered project:

Game On! and Pentart Lasur Gel Indoor with Shizuka

Hi, BoBunny friends! It's Shizuka here. Today I would like to introduce the Misc Me! page I made with the cool Game On! collection and Pentart Lasur Gel for Indoors.

I used some Misc Me! 8"x 9" Pocket Square Page Protectors. Also, I used the picture of my son's soccer game. It was a very enjoyable work to decorate using various patterns of this paper. However, I wanted it to stay in the protector, so I added a little decoration, a little added texture from the top of the protector as well to add visual interest and thickness..

I added a color with the BoBunny Stickable Stencil and Pentart Lasur Gel Indoor.  I decided to use yellow and green to the outside of the protector on this page . I added Noteworthy on the protector. I also pulled in the soccer ball die. A delicate line is my favorite.

On this page I added Noteworthy and pieces of chipboard on top of the protector. The ticket piece is cut to fashion a pull tab.  This bit  is inside the protector but it protrudes a little for a different look. Furthermore, one little piece of chipboard is stacked on top of it from above the protector.

 The next page also decorates cut out pictures, using more Noteworthy and pieces of chipboard.

I think that the newly appearing clear sticker is very suitable for using it because it is transparent because other designs are transparent.

The number 1 is used by attaching a color with a glitter paste to the one cut out from the pattern paper.

 This page is also colored with Pentart Lasur Gel from the top of the protector.

I hope you enjoy my project.

Thank you!

Game On! and Pentart Lasur Gel Indoor with Ginny

It's party time Paper Peeps!  I've got a fun selection of sport themed party décor created with the new Game On collection.  There's a festive banner with multiple sports represented, pennant picks to dress up baked goodies, and jazzed up straws in a box decorated with a banner and crinkle cut filler.

Isn't this a fun grouping?  I love all the little coordinating details.

I used the Lasur Gel Stain in Chestnut to add color to a tiny box that came in the mail with washi tape. Because the box was shiny the finish has a mottled effect that looks a bit like wood grain. I filled it with floral foam and added crinkle cut kraft paper then inserted the straws that were decorated with  a sport tag simply by cutting notches on the top and bottom and sliding the straw through.  Additional stars are used to accent the tags. They were leftovers from the die cuts that are added to the banner. This display would make a great centerpiece.

Can't get any easier than adding pennants to long wooden picks and inserting them into baked treats.

I choose to represent all the sports for this banner with a section for each and strung them together with coordinating ribbon and fussy cut tickets hung between.

For a consistent look I used the same background paper and striped topper. Orange borders tie the whole thing together.

It's very important to remember to use metal eyelets at the tops of banner to keep the ribbons from pulling through.  Adding the die cut stars helps to add texture and detail.

Soooo many layers! These banner sections have a lot of depth and dimension with the spacers between the layers.

Okay that's all for me. We are ready to get our party on!!! Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Hello BoBunny fans! It's Irene here. For today's post, I'm sharing a layout created using the new fun and colorful "Faith" collection by BoBunny.

Faith Layout by Irene Tan using BoBunny Faith Collection

I've used some mixed media techniques to create the background for this layout. I've used some white gesso by BoBunny and Pentart Lasur Gel paint to add textures and colors to the background.

Faith and Pentart Lasur Indoor/Outdoor with Marilyn

Hello everyone! It's Fine Art day, one of my favorite design team assignments to do and I come today with a canvas that I made with the beautiful Faith collection, Bo Bunny and Pentart products.

I love the messages, design and colors in this collection 
and the Faith paper was my inspiration to create this canvas. Sometimes we have difficult situations in our life but not matter how hard it is or how dark it looks, we need to be strong. to have faith, to be the Light and it was my inspiration...

"Be The Light Canvas"

I started applying a coat of Penart white gesso over all the canvas. While the canvas is drying, I'm going to cut out images from the papers like the bulb, butterflies and the girl.  Then I painted the half top of the canvas in similar colors to the Faith paper and for that I mixed the Pentart Creamy Acrylic- Baroque Gold & Trumpet Flower and for the bottom of the canvas I mixed the Nimbus and Blue colors.

I create textures and a design around the bulb image with cheesecloth, the stickable Lots of Love stencil and gesso.

I also added textures on the  bottom sides of the canvas with the same stencil and the Pentart Lansur Gel in country green color. I painted one flower from the Harvest Orange Dahlia package with orange paint and put on the girl's hair.

I apply Black Crackle paste by Bo Bunny on the edges of my canvas, I wanted to see the different colors through the crackle effect.

You can see here the crackle effect that are in all the borders and it's hard to see on the photos. I stamped some words with the Be The Light Stamp on a blue paper from the same collection.

I used markers to paint her face and waterproof pen to enhance her eyes and lashes. I adhered all the images with gel medium.  Finally, I added white paint splatters over all the canvas..

Faith and Pentart Indoor/Outdoor Lasur with Ayumi

Hello Bo Bunny Friends,
Today I will introduce a Mixed Media frame using the Faith collection from Bo Bunny with Pentart Lasur Gel.

 Clip frame calendar by Ayumi Iwashita

The clip part's calendar can be removed.

Let me tell you how to color the frame.
At first, I paint Lasur Gel (Blue, yellow) with a sponge.

I painted the blue as a whole, painted yellow from the top.

Next, draw a Creamy Acrylic (Gold, Eggplant, Sour Cherry Red) with a stencil using a sponge.

Mixing three colors in some places makes it a fantastic finish.

And finally it is the finishing.
Normally it is used for the first time, but in order to make a more fantastic work this time, lastly acrylic primer white was partially painted.

 Once the coloring of the frame is completed, it is completed by decorating with paper etc.

Thanks for joining me today. 
 Have a fabulous day!
