Bella Blvd Squeeze The Day Fruit and Vegemite Lunches Layout

Hi again my scrappy friends, Melinda here with you on the Anna’s blog again with my second share using the Bella Blvd Squeeze the Day collection! Another 12×12 page, here is myBella Blvd Squeeze The Day Fruit and Vegemite Lunches Layout.

Bella Blvd Squeeze The Day Fruit and Vegemite Lunches Layout

For this one I started with some white card stock which I had gessoed and some of the 12×12 papers which I tore strips from. I have used the Fruit Salad, Borders and both sides of the Lemon Fresh papers to layer on the left side of my white background.

I’ve seen this technique a few times and finally got around to trying to myself! I pulled out some Distress Oxide ink pads that matched the colours of one of the ephemera rainbow pieces. Then I swiped the ink pad gently along the card stock. Next I spritzed with some water and let the colour run by tipping my page up. To ensure I didn’t make mud I worked with the warm tones and dried that. Next I added the cooler tones. Colours used are Picked Raspberry, a mix of Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, Lucky Clover and Tumbled Glass.

For some extra interest after that dried I added some stamping with Distress Oxide Inks.

And to finish my background I added splatters using some Distress Oxide Sprays and some watered down Oxide Inks.

With my background completely dry it was time to start bringing my page together. The Bella Blvd Bella-Pops are simply adorable so I started my embellishing with 2 of those – Pearfect and the strawberry from I Pick You. So cute!! Some ephemera pieces and also some stickers from the Doohickey sticker sheet layered up around and next to my photo.

The label from the ephemera pack was the perfect place to start my title! I’ve used the gorgeous Blueberry Wonky Alpha Stickers (on clearance, 30% off!!) and then 2 different sets of alphas from my stash.

I added in my journalling, date and finally, some tiny black splatters. You can see the whole page come together in the video below!

So, that’s my share for today using the Bella Blvd Squeeze the Day collection. This is such a fun and bright collection, you’ll want it all! You can pick up the collection kit here in the store which will give you 2 of each paper (that way you don’t have to choose a side!) and also the Doohickey stickers! So fun!

I hope  you’ve enjoyed my page today and I’ll be back again with another share soon!
