It's Her Time to Bloom / Bella Blvd

Happy Monday, friends!  I'm so excited to share my first layout for Bella Blvd today!  Woo hoo!  Today starts the new Creative Team introductions, and I am one of the first ones up.  My jaw literally hit the floor when I saw this gorgeous She Blooms collection from the Illustrated Faith series.  It's just beyond stunning, and I knew I had to create a project with it right away.

It's perfect for photos of my sweet Reese.  I used lots of white gesso and bright blue acrylic paint to create the background.  I also added lots of ink splatters in blue, yellow, pink and black.  I wanted it to look like a color and floral explosion.  I've so happy with how it turned out.  I seriously want to frame it and hang it on my wall :)

I absolutely LOVE all the fun and colorful Bella Blvd alphas.  I mixed and matched some of the Tiny Text with Homespun Alphas and then cut "Bloom" on my Cameo out of the She Blooms paper.  So much color...I can't even stop staring at it!  I stitched through the alphas and added in lots of tangled thread.  I love the florals...the colors are just amazing!

Can I just please cover my entire wall with these?  I fussy cut the pink flower from paper and paired it with some die cuts and a sticker.  I love how they all look against the blue background.

I think I could create with blue paint for the rest of my life and be happy...haha!  Add in some pink and yellow and I'm one happy camper :)  I love this black and white striped paper as a base for all these bright colors.  Everything just pops and works so beautifully together.

Be sure to check out the Bella Blvd Blog each day this week to meet the new Creative Team Members and to see what gorgeous projects they have created!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
