Pretty Little Studio: Capture Adventures

Saturday, April 28, 2018

Welcome, once again, to the weekend, y'all!  I've plans to check a few home improvement projects off my list; but before I can get to that, I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog, sharing a page inspired by Maryam Perez's Sweet Life Collection.  I'd love to share it here, too.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding teal and green, watercolor puddles to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page; splattering it with those same watercolors, as well as yellow and bright pink watercolors; stamping it, in Jet Black ink, with a few vintage bricks; and splattering it once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  That set the stage for my photos, which were matted with white cardstock; backed with a large snippet of cheesecloth; and mounted in a sloppy, grid design.  The top, right corner of that grid was filled with a Life Is Beautiful 3x4 Pocket Card, topped with a My Story Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, to create the "capture adventures" title and used to house my journaling.  My journaling reads, Newlin Family, Enjoying a picnic lunch & play time in the park after our visit to Bass Pro Shops & before we're off to Ozark Family Adventure @ Tan-Tar-A Resort.  These are my favorite moments!  7-26-10, Springfield, MO.
The bottom, right corner of my journaling reveals a cluster of Flower Garden, Cupcake Party, and Life Is Beautiful Die-Cut flowers, some of which were popped up with foam tape.
A couple of additional, floral die cuts trail down the right side of the page amidst "hanging out" and "enjoy life" Cupcake Party Die Cuts and a "smile" My Story Die Cut.
A "CURRENTLY" My Story Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, rounds out the right side of the design and moves us to...
the secondary, floral cluster on the left.  The flowers in this cluster come from the Flower Garden and So Sweet Die-Cut packages.
A So Sweet Die-Cut tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow, and "LOVE" pennant, secured with a simple staple, trim the left side of my final photograph; and a "this is my favorite" So Sweet Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, in addition to a couple of flower, as well as branch, Live Simply Clear Stickers and trio of Pink Frosting Sequins completes the look.
I adore all the different flower arrangements in this collection; and while flowers tend to say spring and summer, they also work brilliantly for a number of different occasions that are celebrated all year round.  Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit, friends!  Have a blessed weekend!  XOXO
