PLAY | Bella Blvd | To the Moon

Friday 2 July 2021

Hey everyone, here is a new layout for Bella Blvd using the To the Moon Collection. I decided to use an enlargement photo today which I had printed in 12x12 size.

I started off by trimming down the photo, mounting it on white and then mounting it again on one of the green papers from the To the Moon collection. This picked up on the colours in my photo and seemed to go well.

My large photo had an area of space to the left side so I started adding embellishments to this area. I cut up some patterned strips from the To the Moon paper with the border strips on. I stuck the wide colourful stripy one on the left side of the layout with the navy blue arrow one too.

I then started adding other bits & pieces to the layout, picking out the words and phrases that went well with my layout. I used a mixture of ephemera, stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet and chipboard pieces.

I have used the word PLAY for my title, which was from the To the Moon chipboard. I love all the other phrases I managed to incorporate too such as ‘100% Boy’, ‘Believe, explore, play dream’, ‘go see do’, ‘you are my world’, ‘never stop dreaming’. These are all such lovely phrases and go so well with this photo of my little boy Theo.

I raised almost all the embellishments on foam pads. This was to get some separation from the photo background. I also added a smaller cluster of embellishments over on the right side of the large photo too, a mixture of stickers and chipboard.

I filled in some of the remaining gaps with puffy stickers and then finished off with a few splatters of white paint.

I don’t use enlargement photos like this very often, but they are just so totally awesome! They really make an impact and I love how this layout turned out, and it was pretty simple to make too.

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
