Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!
Today I am sharing a page I made with the new April kit, “Jellybean”! It is absolutely gorgeous and full of amazing, bright colors. For our Geek Lab, I am going to be using cut files, AND using the exclusive PRINTABLE that comes with the kit!
There were two particular things that inspired me for this page: a piece of the exclusive flair that says “she’s crafty”, and a piece of the Bella Blvd “Make Your Mark” paper with lots of colorful paint strokes.
I had a photo of my daughter watching a Bob Ross video on YouTube and painting, so I thought these items would be a great way to highlight this photo.
I began by cutting out some large paint stroke shapes from a digital cut file and also the word “Art”. I planned on backing these areas with the bright paint stroke paper.
I used a dry, 1″ paintbrush to stroke some areas of dark paint and over my title area and for some journaling areas.
I framed my photo with a cut file frame to make it look like a picture frame and hung it with some twine and a brad from my stash.
I embellished with cut outs from the exclusive printable that includes phrases and lots of tags and other elements. There were also quite a few Bella Blvd bits that had sayings relating to making art and creating, so I had to add those in!
Finally, I added some stitching and doodled some stars.
You can watch my entire process here:
Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget about the printables that come with the kit!
