Hi there. Today I’ve got a mixed media layout to share with you and a simple step by step on how to add some punched shapes to your background. I have combined both of Bella’s masculine mini theme ranges with Ranger Distress ink for a fun page.
Here’s how I added the ampersand shapes onto the background:
- With an ampersand puncher (I’ve used Fiskars), punch out 12 ampersands through the Steamworks Odds & Ends paper.
- Ink the edges of each ampersand with Ranger’s Black Soot Distress Inkpad and Foam Applicator.
- Position each ampersand onto the Dapper segments paper, surrounding the photo and then adhere. Layer them on top of each other for a more interesting finish.
With extra hints of sunshine colours, here’s my finished page.
Ruby Rock-It Brands materials: Dapper Mini Theme, Steamworks Mini Theme, Bella Gold Florals, Fundamentals Butterlfy Embellishments, Fundamentals Black on Alpha Stickers
Ranger Distress Ink materials: Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Wild Honey, Foam Applicator
I’ve added some pretty Gold Bella Florals and Fundamentals Butterflies, together with an old vine flower I’ve got from my stash for the cluster which I’ve inked with the Black Soot and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inkpads and applicators.
The Fundamentals Alpha Stickers make up the title and some extra shading has been applied onto the page with the Wild Honey and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I just love this photo of my daughter and nephew when we moved to our new house.
Hope I’ve inspired you to create with Bella’s Mini Themes. Check out all the awesome range HERE. These are also available at a Spotlight store near you.
