Happy Thursday, friends! I'm back today to share two of the projects I created for Creativation 2017 (CHA) for Bella Blvd. I used the new Make Your Mark collection to create a layout and a card. It's full of bold and bright colors and artsy and abstract types of prints. I just had to put all those awesome colors together and create a fun layout.
I knew a black & white photo would really pop against all those brights, so I went with that. I used a few patterned papers to create a vertical design on the left side of the page. I fussy cut all those little gumdrop shapes from pattern paper and created a fun little banner going from the photo to the right side of the page. I added a little bit of white gesso on my background and then added some yellow watercolor. I also added lots more splatters in dark grey, aqua and pink. I hand drew and fussy cut the word LOVE and then fussy cut "you" from one of the gold foiled patterned papers.
Look how pretty that metallic shine is! I love the fun font. There are a few papers with gold phrases on them, and I just cut this from one of those to make my own title. I layered a bit of patterned paepr and a gumdrop shaped die cut under my photo. That scribbly circle is a die cut I had lying around on my desk from a previous project. I also added some tangled thread in there. I used some of the older Tiny Text alphas to complete my title.
I love making banners, and these little shapes were perfect. I lightly glued them down and then went back and machine stitched through them. I added some journaling right underneath it.
Here are a few of the die cuts from the Paper Pieces pack. I love hearts, and this collection has them! I also added in one of the plastic Designer Clips as a layering piece.
Adding layers is a great way to add depth to your page. By adding the paper and die cuts as well as tissue paper and adhesive foam under my photo, it instantly gives it a little lift and adds interest.
Look at those colors! I'm a sucker for the rainbow effect, and this is just my favorite. You can't go wrong with these brights! I added in a few arrows and another gold heart here.
Here's a cute card I made using this same collection. There are a lot of these gorgeous watercolor flowers...die cuts AND puffy stickers! Yay! I fussy cut another "you" and then added LOVE using some of the shiny gold alpha stickers.
I added some white gesso and some Shimmerz to the background before adding the flower cluster. I did add some foam under it. Look at the shadow it creates!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have a fun canvas to share soon as well as a few more projects using another new Bella collection. Stay tuned!
Have a great day!
