today is the last day of out design team introductions on the bella blvd blog. stephanie and i made a last minute decision to re-introduce ourselves, along with all the new girls. so i whipped up this quick layout yesterday.
any guesses, as to what collection i used for this layout?
if you guessed the brand new mid-release, winter wonder, you'd be right! i just love the colors and patterns in this collection. the thing is, i live in california. the part of the state where we don't have anything close to "winter" weather. lol! snow? snowflakes? skiing? sledding? mittens and scarfs? ummmm. no, we don't have those sorts of things here. but that's not going to keep me from using a super cute collection ;)
the great thing about bella's pattern papers, is that you will always find super versitale patterns, that can be used for anything. at first glance, you might assume that i used a lot of pattern paper for this page. but i didn't. on both the green circle paper, and the yellow chevron paper, i simply cut some one inch strips. then i cut the ends at an angle, and adhered them up against each other. if you look closely at the photo above, you can see where the cuts are in the corners. i used a sheet of kraft cardstock, to build my entire layout on top of, so the strips sort of gave the look of a frame around the edges.
so the entire middle part of the page was empty, and then i added my white cardstock piece in the center of the page, which covered up the empy spot. but not before i misted my paper. yes, you read that right. i misted something! took me forever, but i think i'm ready to jump on the misting train. lol! i used some "piglet" pink mist, from studio calico. the color worked perfectly.
