Making a splash with Bella Blvd.

I had a couple of scrappers ask me to design a beach themed book. I had the perfect pictures, the perfect paper line, and worked with the perfect book!

This first page. You can't really tell but it's a thin canvas page. Maybe when you click on the picture you will see it better. I added fun Bella Blvd. chipboard pieces and papers.
The original shape of the canvas page was bigger and was shaped like a bracket. I used the piece that I cut off to another page. You can see it in the back of the book.
Oh you can see the size of the canvas piece here on the left hand side. I added journaling to the back side of the page.
The two pieces to the right were one original chipboard page. It was long like the rest of the book. I cut the pieces to make them smaller. The bracket on the larger chipboard piece was already on the original piece.
The bracket canvas piece that I cut off on the first page, I added to the right side of this chipboard page. I wanted to keep this page simple to show off the beautiful picture.
I added glimmer mist by Tattered Angel's to this page. I love the color Sunflower. It's so pretty!
I took a lot of the round chipboard pieces plus others to decorate this border. I added twine to the buttons.
The last two pieces of this book I adhered together. I created the page on the acrylic piece. Glazed it with mod podge. I then used the last canvas sheet as a background. I adhered it from the backside.

Hope you like it!!! Tell me what you think.
