A page today....

I got some Bella Blvd stuff the other week...not a company that i would normally buy...but in my effort to move my style on i bought some. And when i saw it, i will admit that i was a bit worried if i would ever use it. The patterns are very blog and loud...i like bright colours that the overall texture of the sheets was not something i would normally use. But i grabbed them and had a go.

Again in the spirit of moving myself along i grabbed a sketch and tried to use it....i used the one from the Basic Grey blog...


I will admit that i did change it around a bit...but i used this one to make myself use the two photos. I struggle with photos that are not the same ie..landscape or portrait...so this was to make myself use them. 
Here is what i came up with. Again no inking. I have found this to be somewhat freeing!!!! it takes time to ink everything and at the moment i am liking the non ink look...so i think it may stay!

and some close ups.

supplies used:
pattern paper - Bell Blvd - Mr Boy and Finally Fall 
Background Paper is from Studio Calico
Letters - Thickers from American Crafts called Goodness from Amy Tangerine.
Die cuts ( Yellow with simply perfect and some others i used at the top of the page ) are from Little Yellow Bicycle
Pins - Little Yellow Bicycle
Little lettering - Authentique
Little kraft butterflies and flower chipboard - Studio Calico
