This first page was up on the Bella Blvd blog on Monday, along with lots of other beautiful cards and pages featuring the Kiss Me collection.
I had fun layering up flowers of all different mediums on this page - patterned paper, chipboard, doily and even Bella's crocheted flowers. It creates lots of dimension, texture and interest, don't you think?
I had another layout go up on the Bella blog today. Myself and some other design team members were give this inspiration image to base a layout off of:
Here is my take on the challenge...
I was drawn to so many of the elements from this image. I knew I wanted to start my project with a mostly white background, just as is featured in the inspiration piece. Because this seemed a bit too plain I decided to back my whole project with a border of the Sophisticates Oyster Sprinkles & Lace paper, for a subtle but impactful effect.
I just couldn't resist creating a row of elements/tags that appear to be hanging, as again, inspired by the original image.
I went for a bold red title, just like the inspiration text. The little 'kissy lips' throughout the page, were cut from one of the borders strips on the Kiss Me collection paper. I popped some of them up and added glossy accents to all of them, to make them look at bit more realistic.
You might have noticed that I mentioned something about a little giveaway in the title of this post? I'm sure you haven't forgotten! I would love to share this pile Bella Blvd's Kiss Me collection with one very lucky blog reader...
