Pretty Little Studio: So Fabulous

Saturday, May 26, 2018

Morning, y'all, and welcome to the weekend!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing a page inspired by Heather's newest XOXO Collection.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding puddles of pink and purple watercolors to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then splattered it with those same shades of watercolor; inked Pumice Stone Distress Ink through a lattice stencil across the background; and splattered it once again but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  That set the stage for a number of 1" and 1-1/4" wide strips of patterned paper from the XOXO Collection, including Rose Gold Metallic Cloud 11 Vellum, as well as one lonely print from Sweet Life, all anchored with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  My photos, which were matted with white cardstock, were then adhered, across the background, with foam tape.  The top, two photos were wrapped together with a length of white string, tied, in a bow, to their combined, right edge, amidst a cluster of Blooming Love Die Cuts, all popped up with foam tape and embellished with a "picture perfect" Sweet Life Flair Button and gold, puffy, accent leaf.
A Rose Gold Metallic Label sits opposite the cluster, popped up with foam tape, and was used to house a few handwritten, photo details, Vintage Sundress, Simple Simon & Co., Easter 2014.
The lower photograph was sandwiched between two additional, Blooming Love Die-Cut clusters.  The first rests in its top, left corner; and like the previous one, it, too, was embellished with a gold, puffy, accent leaf.
The second is much smaller and highlights one of many Pink Frosting Sequins, scattered throughout the design.
A "so fabulous" Shine Bright Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, completes the look.
This is my last PLS project for the month of May, but I didn't want to leave you all without sharing that most of the Summer Vibes Collection has been and will continue to be 50% off for the entire month of May.  Be sure to stop by the Pretty Little Studio shop today!
And don't forget to add this gorgeous, May freebie, designed by Maryám Pérez, with any $24 or more purchase, to your baskets.
Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit, friends!  Have a truly remarkable weekend!  XOXO
