And now...back to the Bellas!
This cute little bella is all ready to go to the beach. I wish I could say this is what *I* look like when going to the beach, but I won't lie to you all! Let' s just say it's been many years since I've worn a bikini.
When I saw this beach Bella, I thought of this wonderful paper from last summer's mini catalog. I instantly fell in love with this particular design because I LOVE diagonal stripes, and the colors are so wonderful together. I really thought it looked like a beach towel and would work well for her.
I colored this bella with markers (celery, bashful blue, and creamy caramel) then rounded just 2 corners. She's mounted on Certainly celery (also 2 corners rounded) and then I decided I should pierce some. I did this freehand, so they aren't exactly even! I added the flag to one corner with a silver brad and some celery grosgrain.
I stamped the Beach Babe sentiment with the teeny tiny Rough Edges alphabet set...and am quite proud of how well I lined it up even without using the Stamp-a-ma-jig!
Hope you enjoy these...we're just over halfway through our Bella-Rific week, and I have some great ones to come! And...I finally placed an order for some Bella's of my own, so hopefully I'll have them in just over 2 weeks when hubby returns from the US. Oh boy!!!
