Explore | Bella Blvd | Acrylic Words & Shapes

Wednesday 28 April 2021


Hi everyone, I have a fun new layout to share today for Bella Blvd. I’m using the Let’s Go on an Adventure collection and my assignment today was to use acrylic words and shapes.

I picked out the set of Acrylic Words ‘Explore & Play’ and choose to use Explore as my main title for this layout. I loved the paper from the Let’s Go on an Adventure collection that is like a forest: a deep green background covered in trees. I wanted that to feature heavily on my layout so added it to the top of a white background and the folded back the corner into a large triangle shape. The reverse side of that paper is black and the white word Explore showed up so well against that black so it was definitely the best place to put my title.

I mounted my photos and tucked the under the fold. I added ephemera from the Ephemera Icons and the Ephemera Words packs. I also added lots of the cute chipboard pieces.

On the large fold I added ephemera trees in different designs and I also pulled out several hearts in coordinating colours. I also reached for the Heart Hugs pack in Rainy Day blues and added one of those to the fold which says ‘fun’.

I added acrylic shapes too, both from the Trees Mix and from the Patriotic Stars. The red stars didn’t work with my colour scheme today but the blue ones did! I love the different texture and dimension acrylics add to my layouts so these were fun to use.

I added some machine stitching around the outside of my patterned paper and on the fold itself and finished off with some splatters of blue and green paints either side of my photo clusters.

I absolutely love how this layout turned out, it’s just so fun and perfect for my dinosaur hunting boys.

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
