Pretty Little Studio: Baseball

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Hey, y'all!  Welcome to the weekend!  I'm up again on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing a page that showcases pics of Ezekiel playing fall baseball about this same time last year.
I started this page by using my Cameo to cut the Three Gears cut file from a 12x12 piece of watercolor paper.  After backing each gear with its own print, I added a little blue watercolor to everything.  Once it was dry, I stamped a few strategically-placed stars in Jet Black ink and splattered everything with that same blue watercolor, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  I then placed my photos, which were matted with white cardstock, over a piece of Spiderweb vellum and sandwiched between a journaling card from the new Summer Vibes Collection...
and that darling Henry Vintage Die Cut.  Isn't he a doll?!
The "baseball" title was Cameo-cut from Brilliant Blue cardstock and placed over the Cameo-cut, from our Night Stroll print, "TODAY".  A Nature Word Flag Sticker helps to emphasize the whole theme of the page.  The title itself was topped with both a hand-cut, Camellia Phrase Strip, anchored with a Happy Journey Flair Button, and a Sunny Clear Word Art; and a happy mix of Spain Star Die Cuts and hand-cut, from our Metallic Big Silver Star print, stars dress up the entire design.
My photos were topped with a France Frame and Catmint Tab, which I used to etch my Sept. 9, 2015, date...
and grounded with a Lantana Cut Apart Label, to which I stabled a "happy" Bloom Word Die Cut, as well as a Salt Lake Clear Shipping Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow.  A little journaling, which reads, Every day is a good day for baseball; trio of phrase stickers...
scattering of Ocean Blue Confetti; and an All Day Flair Button, backed with a tangle of silver thread, complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Picture This' September Challenge: Wish Upon a Star.  Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit, friends!  Now, get out there and make your weekend a creative one.  Hugs!
