Bella Blvd Squeeze The Day Full of Sass Layout

Hello, hello and welcome to the Anna’s blog again today with my Bella Blvd Squeeze The Day Full of Sass Layout! Melinda here with you sharing another 12×12 layout using the Bella Blvd Squeeze The Day collection. This one is titled Full Of Sass and totally sums up my youngest child lol

Bella Blvd Squeeze The Day Full of Sass Layout

I started this page using the September monthly sketch challenge as inspiration so my strip of 3 photos worked perfectly! Sketches are such an awesome place to start a layout and can be interpreted in so many different ways!

I wanted to use another dark paper for my back ground, I love the way the bright colours just pop! Using the B side of the Orange You Glad paper I added a layer of white gesso where the sketch suggested. As I wanted hazy edges I used a combination of a brush and my fingers to smudge the gesso on. Then came the colour!! For this I chose 2 Lindy’s Gang Magical Shakers, Guten Tag Teal and Time Travel Teal. One is a little greener than the other and they work beautifully together. I used mostly the packaging technique to apply the colour but also used a paint brush here and there.

Sticking very closely to the sketch I added in my Annabelle acrylic title “Full of Sass” under the photo strip. And then added a couple of Doohickey Stickers to “finish” that area off.

Again, sticking to the sketch, I started to pick and choose lots of the ephemera and stickers from the Doohickey Sticker Sheet to layer up around my photos. For lots of interest and dimension I have used a combination of foam adhesive and wet glue (because nothing likes to stick to gesso!) to stick all the pieces in place.

I managed to sneak in another of the Bella-Pops!! I used the row of rainbow hearts from the Follow The Rainbow set. And later, I added in some more of the hearts from the I Pick You set! These are just so adorable!!

Following the sketch made this page come together very quickly and easily and I really love all that colour on that bold back ground paper! If you have never scrapped on something dark I really want to encourage to have a go! Black use to scare me too lol
