Pretty Little Studio: Latte Love

Saturday, October 29, 2016

Welcome to the weekend, friends!  I'll be off to a pancake breakfast, for my big kiddo's basketball team, in just a bit.  But before I get started cooking for it, I've got a page to share; as it's my turn on the Pretty Little Studio blog.  I'm diving, once again, into Ashley Horton's Oakley Avenue Collection.  Gosh, I love it so!
I started this page by stamping the "XO", from our Cedar Clear Stamp Set, in Jet Black ink, randomly trickling from the top to bottom of my 12x12 watercolor paper, base page.  I then covered the left 4" of it with strips of a number of prints from this collection and anchored them with black-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  A little, watercolor wash sets the foundation for my photograph, which was matted with white cardstock.  Before adhering it over a happy mix of prints, which were anchored with more black-threaded, machine stitching, as well as a bit of vellum, to soften all the rich colors, I rubbed Wild Honey Distress Ink through a triangle stencil and splattered everything with the same watercolors used above, along with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  I also tucked a Cameo-cut, from Daffodil Delight cardstock, Leafy wreath behind my photo stack.  The bottom left corner of that stack was then embellished with a cluster, consisting of Weathered Frames and Feelin' Fallish Die Cuts; a Foxy Fall Flair Button; and a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow.
The design was topped with a "Latte Love" Feelin' Fallish Die Cut and "crisp air" Pumpkin Mini Words and "HOT CHOCOLATE" Hello Fall Cut-Aparts.  The first two were popped up with foam tape.
A couple more Weathered Frames and Feelin' Fallish Die Cuts ground the page, alongside a Basic Black, Cameo-cut, cardstock "Saturday", which I coated with Glossy Accents for added interest and texture.
A little, hand-penned journaling, grounded with a Feelin' Fallish Die-Cut scallop and which reads, January 4, 2014, They were all out of Pumpkin Spice Lattes in K.C., but they're my absolute fave.  So, we thought we'd try our luck @ the Starbucks in Emporia before heading home & totally lucked out!  Of course, you both needed... wanted kid-size cocoas, too, and trio of Fall Words Stickers, thrown into the mix, complete the look.
Thanks, as always, for popping in!  I hope you get some time to play with paper this weekend.  Hugs!
