Pretty Little Studio: Moments Captured

Saturday, July 14, 2018

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing a page inspired by the warm colors of summer.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding a puddle of yellow watercolor to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then splattered it with that same yellow watercolor, as well as teal, aqua, and orange watercolors; stamped it, in Pumpkin Pie ink, with the orange circles; and splattered it once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  A trio of patterned paper strips, from both the Feels Like Fall and Tales and Dreams Collections, were then anchored, in the vertical center of the design, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches and topped with a couple of additional prints, one again from the Feels Like Fall Collection and the second from Beautiful Day, as well as a Dream Big 3x4 Pocket Card, all of which were anchored with more gold-threaded, machine stitching.  Before those secondary prints were secured into place and topped, in turn, with a snippet of cheesecloth for texture, in addition to my photos, which were matted with white cardstock, I also tucked a couple of Autumn Blossom Die Cuts, as well as a Here Comes the Sun Die Cut, under their edges.
A "moments CAPTURED" Shine Bright Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, serves as my title.
The opposite side of the page was dressed up with an additional Autumn Blossom Die Cut, as well as the darling Swimming Vintage Die Cut.
A Chrysanthemum Shipping Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow; Summer Flair Button, backed with a tangle of gold thread...
couple of bitty Autumn Blossom Die Cuts, popped up with foam tape; scattering of Live Simply Clear Stickers...
and duo of Butterfly Bush Stickers, backed with white cardstock, hand-cut out, and popped up with foam tape, round out the bulk of the design.
A little, hand-penned journaling, which reads, Nothing beats a hot, summer afternoon hanging out @ the pool with a few of our favorite people.  August 2015 (Donna, Brett, & Ella), completes the look.
Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Have a remarkable weekend, friends!
