Rose Layout

Hi everyone!
Jeri here and we are so excited to get this new year started with some incredible new products and some fun projects from our FotoBella Design Team.

Of course, I had to create a layout with my darling nephew giving his mom a rose! I thought this was the cutest picture and displayed his personality perfectly.

Valentine's Day is coming up, and these products couldn't be more perfect for scrapping your Love Day memories! But they also work for any type of love project! This photo of my nephew was taken this month, and isn't technically a Valentine memory.

The BoBunny Stickable Stencils were so fun to use!! They stuck easily to the paper and didn't move as I smeared the glitter paste on them! They pulled off the paper just as easy and didn't leave any mess on the layout.

Have you started your Valentine crafts with any of these products? We would love to see what you are creating! Tag us, or post pictures on our Facebook page!

January Art Journal

Happy New Year everyone, it's Drea here, with the FotoBella Design Team!!      

   In the spirit of the New Year, I thought I'd try something new, so I bought an art journal to enhance my creativity. I started out with two pages, but messed up the first one so bad, that I tore it out and threw it away. Once I got going though, this page came together pretty quickly, and was so much fun to do!


     I sprayed my entire page with a little water, and a couple of Distress Spray Stains (Broken China and Hickory Smoke).

     Then I used an older tree stencil to mask the bottom, spraying it again with the same colors. Not wanting to waste any sprays on the stencil, I pressed it onto my page, repeating the process a few times.

     I also masked the year and month using the older Tim Holtz alphabet mask with the same sprays. Then I used a white Lindy's spray to paint snow along the tops and sides, and outlined them with a couple of gel pens. I actually thought it was done at that point, but once I took photos realized it needed something more. So I took the smallest Bo Bunny Palette Knife to apply a coat of Tim Holtz Distress Collage Medium Crazing over the letters and numbers, which produced the icy effect I was going for. To enhance the crackling, I used a paintbrush with some watered down Broken China Distress Spray Stain, wiped it away on top to reveal the snow, and painted icicles along the bottoms.

     After adding some white spray to my page, I embossed the snowflakes using Bo Bunny's Snowflakes Stamp with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder.
It all came together perfectly!

Thanks for looking, and stop by FotoBella for all of the new goodies that are coming out!

2017 Tag

     Happy New Year from all of us at Fotobella! Did you know that copper is the hot new metal for 2017? It's been a fave of mine for awhile, so I used it on this tag, along with some of the hot new colors, like orange and blue/green.

     Besides being my first project of the year, this is also my first project using Ranger Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Paints, which are so vibrant and easy to use. I used a baby wipe to apply Pure Sunshine, Vibrant Turquoise, and Melted Chocolate onto a Ranger Manila Tag. Then I added some drips with Wild Honey Distress Spray Stain, and stamped the background with the Prima Salvage District #2 Stamp in black. The numbers were masked with Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stain using Prima's Salvage District Clock Stencil, which I also used to emboss the larger clocks. 

     Then I embossed the smaller clocks onto cream cardstock, colored again with the same Dylusions Paints, fussy-cut them, and coated them with Glossy Accents. To some of the clocks I added small black brads that I embossed with copper. 

   The date was done with Ranger's Cargo Alphabet Stencil using Prima's Black Gesso. I added small beads to the gesso while it was wet, and once dry, covered it with Copper Stickles, which I also used to outline my tag. Then I backed it with some recycled netting and torn mulberry paper mounted on black cardstock, and tied off with some copper fibers. 

Thanks for your visit, and shop FotoBella for these supplies and more!
