Alphabets Week Day 1 | Niki

Hey everyone! Niki Rowland here with you today and I'm so happy to have recently joined the Bella Blvd Creative Team and I am excited to share my first layout and process video.  I was challenged to use the Aria and Florence alphabet stickers in a creative way, so I decided to turn them into a rainbow of words!

I attempted to draw the rainbow onto a sheet of white card but failed, and basically ended up eyeballing it. I started with the middle word 'spirited' and went from there. I was aiming to go in rainbow order and to use all seven colours of the rainbow but I ran out of room! So I only used five colors but I still love how it turned out.

I choose words that I would use to describe my little boy who is two and a half - he certainly is spirited and masterful! In between some of the words I added little hearts from the Aria and Florence alphabet stickers. I also stitched through all the words using white thread on my sewing machine.

I cut clouds from a Bella Besties white paper and I used the 'Rainbow with Cloud' cut file from the Silhouette Design Store by Bella Blvd. It was just the cloud I used which I cut twice. I stuck the clouds onto a piece of white cardstock and pierced holes around the edges. I then stitched around these using hot pink embroidery thread. I trimmed them closely and added them to my layout, at the ends of the rainbow of words.

I added my photo to one of the clouds and added embellishments here too. I have used Squeeze the Day hearts, phrases and acrylic shapes. I also added a couple of flowers from the same collection and a tag behind my photo that I tied through with gold thread.

I finished off by adding a few color-on-color splatters over my rainbow arcs using Shimmerz Paints and a paintbrush which I kept very close to the layout so I didn't end up with splatters in the wrong places!
