I have been itching to do some scrapbooking lately and thanks to my daughter she has given me the perfect photo for some fun scrapping. I have mixed and matched Bella’s Graduation Mini Theme, Glittered Papers, and Ranger Distress Inkpads.
Bella materials: Graduation Mini Theme (Convocation, Fractions), Black Glittered Cardstock, Frosted Glittered Cardstock
Ranger Distress Inkpads: Salty Ocean, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, Weathered Wood, Foam Applicators
Other: Alphabet Punch, Star and Flower Punch, Flowers, Tattered Angels Mists
First I have inked some stripes with the Salty Ocean, Broken China, Black Soot, and Weathered Wood Distress inks and foam applicator from the Convocation paper. I then folded the edges of this paper and adhered this onto a white cardstock, blending the same colours around the edges.
I then framed the photo with Bella’s Frosted Glitter Cardstock and adhered this onto the page with some dimensional tape. Some more Salty Ocean, Broken China, and Chipped Sapphire ink has been blended around for some extra pop of colour.
For the title, I punched the alphas with Bella’s Black Glittered Cardstock and adhered them under the photo. I have fussy cut a word out of the Fractions paper and surrounded this with a small cluster amogst the title.
As for the finishing touches, I have punched some stars and flowers to add to the page and some extra spritzing and splats of mists throughout.
Here’s how I did the big black splats:
- Get your black mist and straw ready. Put a decent blob of black ink on the paper.
- Hold the straw and blow on the ink until it spreads out to a splat and let dry.
I am so glad to have a memory of my daughter with her Kapa Haka participation at school which she really enjoys. This is just one of the many reasons why I love to scrapbook.
Bella Mini Themes are so versatile for any crafting themes, and these are available at a Spotlight store near you or online HERE. Thanks for popping in.
