Pretty Little Studio: Falling for You

Friday, November 3, 2017

Evening, y'all!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, playing with Heather Doolittle's newest collection, Feels Like Fall.  Aside from the theme being based upon my absolute favorite season, I cannot tell you how much I adore the colors in this collection!  There's something for both masculine and feminine creations and everything in between.  Yay!
I started this page by adding orange and yellow, watercolor puddles and splatters to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  A few blue, watercolor splatters also tie a number of embellishments into the design.  I then stamped three different leaves, in Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Coastal Cabana inks, in vertical columns pointing down.  Tip: Use a ruler to etch soft, pencil lines, which easily erase once you're done, for a nice, straight pattern.  I then splattered everything with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before adding a little texture, through a lattice stencil, with modeling paste.  I then adhered a few Lovely Leaves Die Cuts to follow the same pattern as the stamped leaves and anchored a number of coordinating 8x8 prints with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  The latter were then topped with a snippet of cheesecloth, folded sheet of Feeling Warm Gold Metallic Vellum, and my photo which was matted with white cardstock.  That set the stage for lots of scrumptious embellishments, beginning to the bottom left of the photo itself.  I tucked a Watercolor Shipping Tag, laced with Baker's Twine, tied in a bow, under the loose elements and topped it with a Fox & Friends Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, as well as a couple of stamped, in Chocolate Chip ink, on Crumb Cake cardstock, and hand-cut acorns.
The opposite, bottom, right corner was dressed up with a Fall Away Arrow from last year's fall Oakley Avenue Collection and "JUST PERFECT" Feeling Blessed Word Flag, topped with both a "blessed" Fall Phrase Die Cut and Fall Favorites Flair Button, backed with a tangle of gold thread.
A combined trio of Cut-Apart Fall Phrases and an Oakley Avenue's Feelin' Fallish Die Cut, as well as a Fall Label Cut-Apart, stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "NOV 05 2011" date, and another acorn, prepared in the same way as the two above, ground the design.
A couple of stamped, in Jet Black ink, fall phrases and mixture of Sunsational, Seaspray, and Snowcone Sequins complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Colorful Creations' November 1st Thankful Challenge.  I couldn't possibly be any more thankful for my big kiddo at the time this photo was taken and now.  I also didn't want to leave y'all without sharing Pretty Little Studio's November Freebie with any $24 or more purchase.  Be sure to click here to add it to your cart BEFORE checking out.  It will NOT be automatically added to your cart.  So pretty!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a blessed weekend, friends!
