Little Me...with Belinda Spencer

 Hello Bee Arty fans!!

It's Belinda here today to share my latest layout inspired by the fabulous March Mood Board featuring some awesome Bee Arty products.

Here's a peek at the mood board.

To start my layout, I cropped a sheet of Positive paper from the Fearless, Brave and Free collection by Fiona Paltridge and added it to a sheet of Bee Arty White Cardstock. I just love the watercolour style designs in this range so much. They make perfect background papers just as they are or you can build upon them with a bit of mixed media. 

Next I used the Grungy Splat A5 Stencil to add a couple of huge splats to the background. I mixed up a bit of a concoction of Snow White Colour Paste + White Heavy Gesso + Slipper and Citrus Colour Artist Inks and used that with the stencil to create soft pink splats. (I apologize for the photo editing!! It has made my splats look more cream than pink).

Once the splats were dry, I added some more stencilling using the stars from the That Way A4 Stencil and another homemade concoction of Snow White Colour Paste + White Heavy Gesso + Oasis Artist Ink.

I added some stamping next using the 'bubbles' from the Making Your Mark Red Rubber Stamp Set and some Archival Ink. I used the Netted Metal Die to create a 'fishing net' to add next. I used a long arm stapler to attach to the page. Much easier than glue!

I cropped some pieces from the Comfort Zone and Confidence papers and stacked behind my photo.

I added my title cut from the Within paper and the Lines paper from the Untangle collection. I used Thickers for the 'ME'.

I used the That Way stencil again with Distress Oxides to stencil some stars onto a spare sheet of white cardstock. I fussy cut and added those to the layout as well as a Charm's Creations star to finish.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you are feeling inspired to have a play with the mood board this month too.
