To The Moon And Back by Tracey Campbell

 Hello it is Tracey Campbell back for 2022 sharing my latest creations and hopefully inspiring you to pull out the absolutely awesome Bee Art Collections and Colour Blast Products. 

For my first Blog Post for 2022 I wanted to share a layout that I created mixing and matching a few different Bee Arty Collections. I must admit that one of my favourite things about the collections is that you can use your left over scraps from multiple collections together to create wonderful new layouts.

To The Moon and Back

Bee Arty Collections used:

Grateful Heart

Find Paradise

Bohemian Bliss

Arty Farty

Embrace Change

My first step was to use some Bling Colour Blast Paste with a paint palette knife and scrape it through the Scripted A5 Stencil onto the Faith patterned paper from the Grateful Heart Collection, making sure that it is white woodgain side. Colour Paste is as soft as butter and so lovely to spread; tip: start with just a small about (around the size of a 10 cent piece) at it spreads easily and by using only a small amount you don't waste any of it.

Continue to move the stencil around the Faith patterned paper to spread the image around the paper. See the photo above for the final positioning, let dry. The Scripted Stencil is one of my favourite Bee Arty Stencils, because it gives you bot a nice script writing and the small diamond shapes which both add lots of texture to a background and is very versatile. 

When dry I applied some Saffron Colour Spray with a Brayer to spread it out across the page.

Here is what the base looked like after the Colour Spray was applied.

Once the Saffron Colour Spray was dry I used a stiff paint brush and dipped it in a bottle of Sunset Colour Spray and flicked dots across the Faith patterned paper. 

Leave it to dry thoroughly. 

While waiting for the Colour Spray to dry mat three 10x7.5 cm photos (landscape orientation) with Festival from the Embrace Change Collection.

Cut three sperate rectangles using the following measurements and papers listed below:

27x6 cm from the Transform patterned paper in the Arty Farty Collection

21.5x11cm  from the Botanicals patterned paper (using the B side pattern) in the Find Paradise Collection

16x14cm from the Free Vibe patterned paper (using the B side pattern) in the Bohemian Bliss Collection

Once the rectangles were cut out I tore off the bottom edge from each triangle and then scrunched them to give them a distressed look.

Adhere the matted photo strip and the patterned papers to the base like in the photo above.

Fussy cut the following elements from the cut-a-part sheets:
2 x lace doilies from the Grateful Heart Collection
The Tile "To the Moon and Back" from the Embracing Change Collection

Cut the lace doilies in two and then position everything on the layout. You can see the positioning of the fussy cut elements in the final layout below. 

Well I hope that I have inspired you to pull out all your Bee Arty and see what pieces go together. It is so much fun seeing how the final layout turns out.
