Pretty Little Studio: Feeling Blessed

Monday, November 13, 2017

Welcome to the work week, y'all!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog this morning, sharing another fall-inspired page, using a happy mix of collections.  You just can't beat how smoothly they all weld together!
I started this page by adding puddles of yellow watercolor to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then splattered it with yellow, orange, and aqua watercolors before stamping different sizes of striped circles in Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Coral Calypso inks and splattering the page once again but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  A quartet of coordinating prints from the Feels Like Fall and Oakley Avenue collections were anchored, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching, behind my photo which was matted with white cardstock, backed with a snippet of cheesecloth, and flanked with a couple of Feelin' Fallish woodgrain arrows.  A "LOVELY" So Lovely Bingo Card crowns my photo stack and was topped with an "autumn" Fall Phrases Die Cut, popped up with foam tape.
A cluster, which includes Autumn Blossom Die Cuts; a Walk in the Park floral die cut; hand-cut, from Oakley Avenue's Pretty Poppies Vellum, poppy; and a Fall Memories Flair Button, backed with gold thread, dresses up the top left corner of my photo...
and a collection of "feeling blessed", which happens to serve as my title, Fall Phrases and "go outside/stay inside" Park Bench Cut-Aparts, as well as a "HELLO HELLO" Feelin' Fallish Die Cut, top it.
Moving clockwise, another hand-cut, vellum poppy and Autumn Blossom Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, in addition to a hand-cut, from Summer Vibes' Flower Crown print, orange bloom, round out the right side of my photo.
The bottom left corner was dressed up with a "fall" Orchard Words Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, as well as a Sprinkles Bookmark butterfly and collection of blooms already previously included above.
The cluster in the top left corner of the page includes a Sprinkles Bookmark and butterfly; Watercolor Shipping Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow; My Everyday Cut-Apart Label; Perfect Day Cut-Apart heart; "smile" Park Bench Cut-Apart; Autumn Blossom Die Cut, popped up with foam tape; Feelin' Fallish Die-Cut arrow; hand-cut, vellum poppy; and trailing, hand-cut, Flower Crown bloom.
A scattering of Seaspray Sequins; Flower Crown Clear and Butterfly Bush Stickers...
and stamped, in Jet Black ink, "NOV 5 2011" date complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Sketches In Thyme's Sketch #299.
 
Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Have a wonderful week, friends!
