Pretty Little Studio: Deluge

Friday, March 22, 2019

Morning, y'all!  It's seems like forever, since I was here last.  So, I'm super excited to be back here and up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing a little more of what the Bohemian Dreams Collection can do.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding a layer of gesso to the center of the Boho Geo 12" x 12", patterned, paper, base page.  Once it was dry, I added puddles of teal and yellow watercolor; splattered it with those same shades of watercolor; rubbed Wild Honey Distress Ink, through a stencil, across the background; and splattered everything once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  That set the stage for my photos, which were matted with white cardstock; backed with choice, Bohemian Dreams 6x6 Paper Pack prints, anchored with black-threaded, straight, machine stitching; and adhered in a grid format with a Groovy 3x4 Pocket Card filling the top, right quadrant.  I used it to house my stamped, in Jet Black ink, "March 23, 2008", date and journaling, which reads, We thought spending Memorial Day weekend @ Melvern, away from it all, was just what the doctor ordered; but the weather had different plans.  The rain flattened our tent, during the night, right on top of us.  We found refuge in the car, until the storm had passed; or so we thought.  A hot breakfast, @ the truck stop in BETO Junction, revealed a television forecast of more of the same for the entire weekend.  Ezekiel got a little fishing in, while we broke camp.  Then, we headed home.
The card was topped with a Destination Star Die Cut; Rainy Days Die-Cut cloud, popped up with foam tape; and an Untamed Sticker moon, backed with white cardstock, hand-cut out, and popped up with more foam tape.  A length of white string was wrapped, three times, around the latter and tied in a bow.
It's long end was then laced around three Wander Often Sticker feathers, prepared in the same way as the moon itself.
A "the story" All Together Word Sticker leads into my journaling...
and a "DELUGE" title, created from Say What ABC Die Cuts; grounded with a March 2018 Freebie "remember" die cut; and topped with a Wander Often Sticker arrow, anchors the journaling's right edge.
A "STAY WILD" Dreamy Die Cut, along with a "SO MUCH FUN ALL TOGETHER" All Together Word Sticker, popped up with foam tape, trim out the bottom, left corner of my top, left photo...
while a portion of a 4" Cambridge Doily, paired with a couple of Dreamy Die-Cut scallops dress up the far, left edge of my design.
A trio of gold, star sequins and quartet of Tree Topper Sticker stars complete the look.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
