This week I had a play with the new gorgeous Bella Boulevard Addison ranges.
I also added a splash or two of Jillibean Soup Chit Chat Chowder.
I adore these new ranges - so bright and colourful, perfect for my teenage children!
Because of the bright colours, I chose to go with a white background.
I added a few splashes of watercolour, and then began layering up my papers.
I always add black when using bright colours - I think it 'grounds' everything, and also I think it makes the bright colours seem a bit more 'teenagery' (is that a word?! Lol)
I added a few strips down one side - I love that they have a paper designed for this.
I also cut and tore into a few papers to use as layers around my photo.
I added some 2Crafty triangles, covering some in the bright scraps on my desk,
and also using the negative of the chipboard to trace some triangle shapes directly onto my background paper using a black pen.
I like the 'fun feel' this gives the layout, and I think it works well with the story of the layout
- it's all about how my 15 year old daughter - gorgeous creature that she is - studies.
It's something I always want to remember about her.
I then added some lettering for my title, and included some cute embellishments and stickers as well as the most important part - the journaling!!
Well that's it from me this week.
I'll see you all again next week.
