New Year's Eve Selfies! A layout by Tania Ballestrin

Hello lovely Scrapping Clearly followers! Today I have a layout for you inspired by this month's very gorgeous moodboard!!!!

This month I am playing with Maggie Holme's 'Bloom' Range from Crate Paper! How lucky am I!!! I started with a white cardstock background and was inspired to give the paint swipes a go. This is so easily achieved by using the Ranger paint dabbers. The paint dabber splatters, I made to mimmick the soft pink balloons in the image.
I wanted to make this layout a bit blingy, going by the gold inspiration in the image, so I added some Heidi Swapp Marquee Love tape in between the paint swipes.

I added more gold bling with the Gold foil thickers, (there's loads of extra dots in there too which you can embellish with!!!), and broke up my title with a few other alphas from my stash. I layered up my photomat, using the BLOOM papers: SWEET ROSE & MOMENTS and the HEIDI SWAPP papers from the HELLO GORGEOUS range. The butterfly embellishments were cut from the BLOOM, FLUTTER paper. (Love this, you will be seeing more of these little butterflies!!!)

I am also in love with the WASHI PAPER stickers from the BLOOM collection. The little black love heart was attatched to some cardstock to make a 3D embellishment, and I used a washi strip under the photo mat.
The little rubber shapes in the BLOOM collection are so cute, and quite chunky, so no need for mounting tape!

If you can read my journaling , you will note that I made a boo boo on this layout!!! I could have changed the photos or I could've changed the title, but then I would've wrecked a perfectly good layout, so I decided not to stress about it and have a bit of fun. I have written more journaling on the back which actually tells a bit more of a story! Scrapbooking is not meant to be stressful after all!!!
Hope you have found some inspiration in the Moodboard this month and find time to play along with us! Can't wait to see what you all create!
