'Bella' Layout - Scrap Around The World - Scrapmatts - Flourish With a Bling {+ Prima & Webster's Pages}




Hi!  I'm back today with the close-ups on my layout for Scrap Around The World this month!  Just a reminder of the mood board for November.  So bright & cheery - it's hard not to love it & I can't see how all our entries aren't going to turn out fabulous!!


I used some white cardstock I already had, that I had used to clean my misting mat on, so it was full of residual mists in different colours, which I thought was just perfect for the mood board!


Something very different about this layout, compared to my others, is that there are NO FLOWERS AND NO STAMPING!  This page came together so easily & looked fine without them so I didn't force it.


I used a Kate's Corner Flourish {clear} from FWAB {Flourish with a Bling} & part of a Grace Flourish {Red} plus some negative pieces of chipboard from Scrapmatts - in black & yellow {Mustard Seed Paint Dabber by Time Holtz for Ranger - one of my very fave colours!}


This layout is made up of all sorts of little itty bitty pieces of leftovers.  A few strips of washi, 3 doilies, some mesh tape, black mesh, Prima packaging, part of an envelope, a couple of little glassine bags, a coffee filter, an old birthday card cut up (the floral paper)some misted cardstock offcuts & some Webster's Pages fussy cut acrylic packaging offcuts.   A real COLLAGE!


I love how it turned out!  And the best part?  It only took me an hour!!  That is seriously fast for me!!!


Have a lovely week & try to squeeze in some creativity!  
I know I sure will!!

Love how you pulled out your "leftovers" to create this colorful beauty!! There is so much wonderful embellishment that I didn't even realize until I read it that there are no flowers. :-) ~ Blessings, Tracey
