Pretty Little Studio: Easter Ears

Saturday, April 14, 2018

Morning, y'all!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing a page boasting a newer collection, XOXO; and I'd love to share it, with you all here, too.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding puddles of aqua and purple watercolors to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then splattered it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as pink and yellow watercolors and Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  The XOXO cut file freebie was Cameo-cut from textured, white cardstock and adhered over the background to set the stage for my photos, which were matted with white cardstock.  The top, right photo was also backed with a folded piece of Hugs & Kisses Rose Gold Metallic Vellum and embellished with a Sweet Life Flair Button, backed with a tangle of green thread.
Just below that, I layered a couple of Love Today 3x4 Journaling Cards, cut to size, over pieces of the 1+1 and Forever 2 prints, securing a couple bits, from the stack, with green-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  A "hey" Hello Lovely Word Die Cut and "SWEET THING" February 2018 Freebie were popped up, with foam tape, around the "HUG HARDER..." journaling card...
and a couple of Love Word Flags, laced with white string, tied in a bow and knot respectively, flank its right side.
My second photo was popped up, with foam tape, over another cut-to-size Love Today 3x4 Journaling Card, a piece of the I'm Yours print, and a snippet of cheesecloth for texture.  A Darling Journaling Die-Cut Tag was etched with Adina and Snowflake '16, tucked under its left side, and secured with a single staple; before the papers behind my photo were anchored with green-threaded, straight, machine stitching.
A "today was a good one" A Great Day Flag Sticker grounds this final photo.
Another Love Today 3x4 Journaling Card was cut to size; backed with a piece of the Always print; topped with a piece of Heart Eyes Clear paper; secured, in the top, left corner of the page, with more green-threaded, straight, machine stitching...
and crowned with the "EASTER EARS", Love Story Green Alphabet Stickers title to complete the look.
Before I'm off to get some painting done around our house, I also wanted to share our April Freebie with any $24 or more purchase.  So soft and sweet and deliciously seasonal!  Yay!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a terrific weekend, friends!
