Stamperia The Alphabet Paper Collection for Bella Paperie

Hi, today I have two layouts which I made using the Stamperia The Alphabet Collection for Bella Paperie. This collection is GORGEOUS!! It has lots of vintage brown tones, it is more of a masculine collection although I don't make masculine layouts so here is my girly take on it.

Smile



This paper comes in a 10 sheet double sided pack and none of the papers have names but I used the deep brown dot paper as my background.


On the background I used black texture paste with a word stencil.


I layered lots of paper under my photo and also tucked in some Stamperia wooden clock shapes.
To break up the brown I added touches of blue as it matched my daughters top.
I coloured some wood flourished blue and added a few blue flowers


Inspiration for this layout came from the current More Than Words Challenge Smile and Sketch
The word for this challenge is smile and in this pic my daughter is clearly not smiling, but this makes me smile as I'm always asking her to smile for photos but she quite often gives me this completely unimpressed look.....but I love it.
I also used the sketch.......although my layout evolved as I made it and it didn't quite end up like the sketch.

Memories



For this second layout I used the alphabet script paper as my background. I ripped off the top of the paper and layered it onto some dark brown paper.


Amongst my flowers I added in some Stamperia wood clock shapes.


I also used some wooden keys which I coloured with brown distress inks.


Stamperia The Alphabet Collection used.

I used the current Words and Paintery challenge for this layout

These two layouts along with most of the materials I used to make them are now in the Bella Paperie Store. Plus there are lots of other gorgeous Stamperia Collections.

Thanks for visiting
