Pretty Little Studio: Life Is a Gift

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Morning, friends!  I'm still playing with the Savannah Dreams Collection on the Pretty Little Studio blog today; and I'd love to share the bold, bright, happy result here, too.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding a little gesso and watercolor to the Pretty Meadow 12" x 12" base page.  I then matted my photos with white cardstock and adhered them over two different torn strips (front and back) of the Laugh All Day 12" x 12" print.  One of those prints was anchored over the other with black-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  I then filled the space between two of my photos with a Cherish Today 3x4 Pocket Card, which serves as my "Life Is a Gift" title and was both popped up with foam tape and topped with a Happy Place Die-Cut bird. 
Floral Fantasy Die Cuts were tucked under both the top and bottom, left-side corners of the pocket card.  The top, left corner was further embellished with a Carefree Flair Button, backed with a tangle of black thread; "YOU ARE SO SPECIAL" Floral Fantasy Die Cut, popped up with foam tape; and a playful mix of Happy Place and Floral Fantasy Die-Cut blossoms.
A "beautiful life" Floral Fantasy Die Cut, popped up with foam tape; Label It Die Cut, etched with the Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, 2012, date; and trio of A Birdy Told Me and All Together Word Stickers ground the design.
A trail of Happy Place and Floral Fantasy Die-Cut flowers, as well as a scattering of Pink Frosting Sequins, complete the look.
Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Be blessed!
