Be a Rainbow | Bella Blvd | You are my Sunshine Collection

Friday 10 September 2021


Hey everyone! Here is my latest layout for Bella Blvd using the You are My Sunshine Collection. It’s so bright and happy, I love it so much!

I really wanted to use the rainbow paper but it is a little tricky to use as a background because it has lots of small repeating rainbows on a white background. I was determined to use it as a background though so in order to do that I had to create some white space.

I cut a large circle in the middle of the paper. I distressed the edges and planned to mount it on white. This provided with me a large white aperture in the middle of the layout. It didn’t quite work because the white background of the rainbow paper blended too much with the white circle. So I took it apart again and added a pink circle layer too – this was perfect!

I then made a few colourful rosettes using You Are My Sunshine papers. I simply cut different width strips, used a border punch along one long edge of some, then scored every quarter inch. I concertina folded and glued the ends together. I then flattened them into rosettes and glued them with a paper circle on the back. I arranged these around my layout and stuck them in place.

I cut my photo to a circle too and layered this on top of the rosettes. On the middle of each rosettes I added flowers from the ephemera. I added my title using beautiful Aria puffy stickers in rainbow colours! I also used Florence alphabet stickers too.

I added two Bella Pops: the sun and the rainbow. The rainbow is extra special as it comes with enamel detailing on the rainbow and two enamel clouds!

I finished off by stitching through my title with machine stitching and I also added a few of the cute puffy hearts from the Aria stickers.

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
