The Studio Pink, Gold, & Black Challenge

Sunday, May 10, 2015

Morning, y'all!  We've got a brand new challenge in The Studio for you all.  This one boasts a scrumptious color scheme of pink, gold, and black.  I've had this stack of ballet photos of my daughter, sitting on my desk, waiting for just such an occasion as this palette, for nearly two months.  So, as soon as our challenge came across the DT Blog, I knew they'd be the perfect place to start.  A mix of leftover goodies from several recent Noel Mignon kits provided the foundation.
I started this layout by anchoring a number of patterned paper pieces and strips, as well a punched, black scallop, to the textured, white, cardstock, base pages, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  A strip of Washi Tape also stretches across the top of the design.  After matting my photos with Whisper White cardstock and adhering them in their respective locations, I zeroed in on the "sweetheart, Dream BIG & dance" title, which spills across both pages and was created with a couple of cardstock stickers and a Project Life card, which was anchored with a bit more stitching, as well as gold foil Thickers and a Cameo-cut, from gold cardstock, "dance".  The title itself was built over a simple pink doily, and a "she's HERE" cardstock sticker tops it off.
A trio of journaling stickers, paired with a hand-cut, from patterned paper, bloom, also connect the two pages.  The largest one was secured to the left side of the page with a couple of simple staples, but the majority can be found on the right side; and together they read, I'm so proud of YOU! {heart}, Mom; You were so excited to show us everything you learned in your 6-wk. Pre-Ballet Class with Miss Kozetta; and 10-22-2014.
I then turned my attention to the left side of the page...
specifically the cluster in its bottom left corner, which boasts a couple more hand-cut, patterned paper blooms; black, crape paper tag, laced with white string; "WOW!" die cut; and camera cardstock sticker over a nest of gold thread.
A "YOU ARE THE BEST"cardstock sticker...
turns our attention to the right side of the page...
which houses a couple more of those hand-cut, patterned paper blooms, along with a "love you", floral, cardstock sticker; couple of flair buttons; "WEDNESDAY" die cut...
and another "just lovely" Project Life card once again over a cluster of gold thread.  A handful of gold, star sequins, scattered about, completes the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from ScrapMuch?'s May 1 Sketch-y Friday Challenge.
