Explore | Bella Blvd | Sketch and To the Moon

Friday 27 August 2021


Hey everyone! I have a new layout to share today for Bella Blvd. I’m using the gorgeous and super-fun To the Moon Collection and am using it to scrap a photo of my little boy who loves rockets. I’m also playing along with one of our new sketches which are so fun to use!

I started off with a black background from the To the Moon Collection and splattered it with white paint. I cut three stars from different patterned papers in three different sizes. I also cut mounts for each, again using different papers so I ended up with a multi patterned layout. I stitched around the edge of the top three stars with black thread on my sewing machine and then layered them together with foam pads for dimension.

I mounted my photo and added it to my layout. I slotted it in between the stars. I added a title using the Explore title from the To the Moon Chipboard. This didn’t show up too well against the black background so I mounted it onto a lighter patterned paper first and fussy cut it out, leaving a narrow boarder. This gave it the lift it needed to show up against the dark background.

I fussy cut lots of planets from the Solar System patterned paper and arranged them around the layout layering some on the stars and some onto the background.

I then added smaller embellishments such as chipboard stars and star stickers. At the bottom I added some label stickers that say cute things like ‘love you to the moon and back’, ‘discover’ and ‘imagine’. I also wrote my journaling in this area with a silver pen, directly onto the black background.  

I finished off with a few enamel dots and a cute little alien from the ephemera!

Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you like the layout, I think it’s super fun and am over the moon with how it turned out!

Happy scrapping
