SPOTLIGHT ON: Zip-a-Dee-Doodle

The new Zip-a-Dee-Doodle line by Bo Bunny is fun and quirky, and quite reminiscent of the fun 60's/70's style with lots of paisley and funky flower power in fun whimsical doodles :) The papers are double-sided, with the reverse generally being in black and white, lending themselves perfectly to fun times with paints, inks and sprays :) 

Along with twelve 12x12 double-sided papers, the line also have a 6x6 pad, chipboard, layered stickers, pearls, flowers, buttons, trinkets, and die-cuts. As always a complete solution for perfectly coordinated projects. 




We are taking a look at some of the wonderful projects created by the Bo Bunny design team using this collection:

Layout by Juliana Michaels 
 A great tip here from Juliana: I have used a tab sticker and die cut from the Noteworthy pack to add my journalling. It is hidden behind one of my photos.



 You can see from the pictures above and below how Juliana has cut out elements from various papers and added them onto her layout, slightly raising them for a 3-dimensional effect.




On the canvas below Kris Silvester has combined the Zip-a-Dee-Doodle papers with paints, pens and inks to great effect.

In this layout Rhonda combines Zip-a-Dee-Doodle with Bo Bunny's The Avenues collection (which we shall be spotlighting tomorrow), showing just how versatile these collections are:







The ability to mix collections is shown to great effect in the following two layouts:


Layout by Denise van Deventer

On this layout Denise used a Zip-a-Dee-Doodle papers as the main background with elements from The Avenues, Fright Delight, and Silver & Gold.



Denise says: "I added some gesso to my photo and to the edges of my torn pages, to soften them and allow them to merge into one another, and with the background! I am a very stingy scrapper and like to use everything, and nothing goes to waste. So my other tip is to use the in between bits of the chipboards. You will see I used the beautiful Silver and Gold chipboard swirl, as well as the in between bits for embellishments. "


On the following layout Amy Voorthirus has used papers from Fright Delight (Ghouls and Creepy) Zip-a-Dee-Doodle (Meow and Collage) and Autumn Song (Stripe), as well as Zip-a-Dee-Doodle Combo Stickers and Trinkets, Fright Delight Dimensional Stickers, and Elf Magic Brads.

On the next layout you can see how adding your own colour to the black & white papers allow you to get just the look you want:

 Cut out elements from the paper and layer them around the photo for a great 3-dimensional effect.

After cutting out elements from the paper Ulrika has left some unstuck to lift it off the page:

We love how Ulrika has added her own doodled border as a second frame behind the picture:
