'You are my Sunshine' Scrapbook Layout - Bella Blvd Splash Zone Collection

Hello, Rebecca here with my 4th layout created using the Bella Blvd Splash Zone Collection which I've titled 'You are my Sunshine'.

As soon as I saw the Sunny Days patterned paper I knew that I wanted to use it to scrap some beach photos of my son from our holiday last year because the colours in the paper match the colours in his hat perfectly.

I started by tearing the patterned paper in half and stuck the top half to a sheet of white cardstock. I then tore a small strip from the bottom half and tucked it underneath, with the reverse side showing for contrast.

I'm a self-confessed mixed media addict so just HAD to get some inks and paints on the page. I used some shimmery paints and the packaging technique to add the turquoise and yellow to the page and then used a paintbrush to add splatters.

I backed my photos on white card and added a sheet of turquoise tissue paper to help them pop off the page. Before adding them to my layout I added a layer of foam to add dimension.

I added some ephemera pieces - some from the Splash Zone collection and others from a Doodlebug Design Odds and Ends Chit-Chat pack which co-ordinated well. I also fussy cut one of the sun and clouds icons out from the Sunny Days paper and slotted a Doily by Doodlebug Design behind it.

I'm a little obsessed with Nuvo Drops at the moment so added some turquoise drops in several areas. I felt that the area under my photos was a little bare and then remembered the gorgeous chipboard banner pieces that came in the Vicki Boutin Color Kaleidoscope collection. I've tried to use them on several layouts but they've never quite worked, but the colours matched this layout perfectly!

I finished off my layout by adding my title using some teal coloured thickers and some gorgeous Doodlebug Design Clips which I was lucky enough to get in the Summer Sale.

Thanks so much for reading, I hope you've enjoyed my layout. Please don't forget to head over to the shop where you can view and buy the Splash Zone collection.

Take care,
