Pretty Little Studio: Good Vibes

Thursday, March 28, 2019

Morning, y'all!  I'm thrilled to be back up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing another page inspired by the Bohemian Dreams Collection.  I thought that I'd pop in and share it here, for those of you still following along, too.  Enjoy!
I started this page by trimming the right edge of a 8-1/4" x 12" piece of watercolor paper with a 3-3/4" x 12" piece of the Out of the Box print and secured them together with bright-pink-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  I then smeared a little gesso over the patterned piece before adding aqua and bright pink, watercolor puddles and splattering everything with those same shades of watercolor, as well as orange and yellow watercolors and Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  Once everything was thoroughly dry, I added my photos which were matted with white cardstock.  Additionally, the top photo was backed with a snippet of cheesecloth and wrapped, three times, with a length of white string, tied in a bow.
A "GOOD VIBES" Dreamy Die Cut, popped up with foam tape and flanked with a happy mix of Lazy Daisy Die Cuts, creates the title.
The Lazy Daisy Die-Cut florals, some of which were popped up with foam tape for dimension, continue down the left side of my photos, mixed with a trio of Floral Fantasy Die Cuts; Happy Floral Outlines Clear Stickers; and a combination of hand-cut, from the 2x4 Paper Pack and Dreamy Die-Cuts packaging insert, medallion flowers.
The largest, floral die cut was topped with a "playtime" Noah Flair Button, anchoring a My Tribe Cut-Apart label, boasting the stamped, in Jet Black ink, "JUL 22 2012" date.
A "pretty as a picture" A Great Day Flag Sticker, popped up with foam tape; "HAPPY LIFE" My Tribe Cut-Apart phrase; and a little journaling, Loose Park Spray Park, MO, ground the design.
Another hand-cut, medallion flower leads the way to the "LOVE life" phrase, created with a Dreamy Die-Cut "LOVE" and Beautiful Acrylic Word "life", as well as a happy, little, Happiness Cut-Apart, heart detail.
A trio of Dreamy Die-Cut and Lazy Daisy Die-Cut butterflies, adhered, just at their centers, throughout the design, and scattering of Crystal 4mm and 8mm Sequins complete the look.
Thanks so much for visiting, friends!  Have a blessed Thursday and an extra-relaxing weekend ahead.  Mwah!
