Change is Beautiful - Berry71Bleu


Hello! I'm sharing my take on the Berry71Bleu November Challenge, an inspirational mood board with the theme "Change is Beautiful," created by Berry71Bleu Designer Marilyn Rivera. 

 

I have two young daughters. I love to watch them change and grow. At 7 and 5 years old, their personalities are really emerging. I take a ton of pictures of my girls and spend a lot of time with them, but every so often I snap a photo that really opens my eyes to how fast they are changing. I used one such photo of my oldest daughter for this layout.

I used the gorgeous 7 Dots Studio 9th Wave collection for this page. I incorporated several colors from the mood board and the challenge theme of change into my design. I built up layers of vintage newspaper, trinkets and lace with items from my Zeus and Zoe Kit. I also used one of Marivic's fabulous Berry71Bleu Handmade Tags.


I added both color and texture to the background of this page with Liquitex gesso and acrylic paints.

From that moment, I became totally amazed and thrilled by all the beautiful papers and decorations in the art of scrapbooking.

I had access to great printing facility, as I worked at a printers office. Since 2007, I have been blessed to be able to work with my great passion - to design and create colored coordinated paper."
