Pretty Little Studio: Swing Into Spring

Saturday, October 27, 2018

Morning, y'all!  Just popping in to share a page that's up on the Pretty Little Studio blog this am.  For a number of reasons, I've been feeling melancholy lately.  I decided that I needed to bring a little sunshine back into my day and figured that there truly was no better way to do so than with some papercraft therapy and our Sunny Memories Collection.  Enjoy!
I started this page by smudging and splattering Aquamarine Glimmer Mist, onto the Savannah Dreams 12x12 Paper Pack grid, behind where my photos would lie.  Once it was dry, I inked Spun Sugar Distress Ink through a heart stencil and outlined the edges with a Black PITT artist pen, before splattering everything once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  That set the stage for my photos, which were all matted with white cardstock and adhered in a grid design.  Beginning in the top, left corner, I backed my photo with a piece of the Squiggle Wiggle print, anchored with turquoise-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  A "march" Get Tabbed Die Cut was tucked under its left side...
and a Bright & Happy Die-Cut Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow, under its top.  A "SWING INTO SPRING" Sunny Mix Die Cut, which was popped up with foam tape, serves as my title.
Moving clockwise, a Learn to Fly Pocket Card was stitched into the top, right quadrant; used for a little journaling; and embellished, above...
and below, with a combination of Sunny Mix Die Cuts and Floral Bits Stickers, as well as a few die-cut, from white cardstock, leaves.
A "PLAY OUTSIDE" Sunny Mix Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, rounds the second photo, which was backed with our Night Shade and Straight to the Sun prints, anchored with turquoise-threaded, machine stitching, as well as a torn piece of Giggle Squiggle Vellum.
Another group of Sunny Mix Die Cuts; Floral Bits Stickers; and die-cut, floral leaves, in addition to a Sunny Feelings Flair Button, backed with a tangle of turquoise thread, grounds the design.
A "LET'S GO OUTSIDE" Fresh Phrases Die Cut dresses up the final photo, which was backed with the Coloring Bits and Almost Rainbow prints, both anchored with more turquoise-threaded, straight, machine stitching, as well as a snippet of cheesecloth for texture.  A scattering of Happy Floral Outlines Clear Stickers and Snow Fall Sequins completes the look.
I'm feeling better already ;).  Thanks, as always, for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
