So Super | Bella Blvd | To the Moon and a Sketch

Thursday 20 January 2022

Hi everyone! Here is a new layout for Bella Blvd using the fabulous To the Moon collection and I’m also playing along with this month’s wonderful sketch by Brianna.

I completely adore the sketch and stuck to it pretty closely. I love circles and I love stars so this was pretty much perfect for me!

My photo is of my little boy dressed as Superman, so I picked out the colours from the collection that were Superman colours: red, blue and yellow. I then cut the large circle from red heart paper using old school methods: a compass, pencil and scissors! I distressed the edges (to cover up my wobbly cutting!) and stitched around the edge with black machine stitching.

I cut more circles and stars from the other papers using metal dies. I positioned the shapes on the layout and turned the stars into 3D stars by scoring and folding them.

I added my photo and a journaling card too and got all of my shapes stuck in place. I also punched more stars from black card and added those to the clusters too.

I used the black Florence Alphabet Stickers to create my title. I stuck them onto some white card first and trimmed around them leaving a narrow white border which makes them stand out well against the busy paper behind it.

I finished off by adding a few little ephemera pieces and then I handwrote my journaling around the edge of the large circle. I also added a few splatters of white paint to the clusters.

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
