Pretty Little Studio: Date Night

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Morning, y'all!  It's been a long time; but I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing a page inspired by Claudia vanRooijen's gorgeous, new collection, Shine Bright.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding gesso to the Just Let Go 12x12 patterned paper background.  Once it was dry, I added puddles of three different colors of blue watercolor and used those same shades of blue watercolor, as well as pink watercolor and Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, to splatter over everything.  That set the stage for my triangles, which were Cameo-cut, using Kristine Davidson's It's Not a Circle cut file, from a collection of Shine Bright 6x6 Paper Pack prints and anchored with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching.
They were then topped with my photo, which was matted with white cardstock; backed with a snippet of cheesecloth for that scrumptious texture you all know I love so much; and sandwiched between two clusters of Simply Floral Die Cuts.  The grouping to the bottom right of the photo also includes a camera (Gosh, I adore that gorgeous camera!  I need a dozen of them right now ;).), arrow, and tassel from the Chasing Dreams Die-Cut package, as well as a length of white string, tied in a bow, and a "date night" Sweetheart Mini Word, which happens to serve as my title.
The second, Simply Floral Die-Cut grouping additionally encompasses an April 2019 Freebie butterfly (I hope you scooped up one for yourself last month.) and a Lovely Flair Button.
One more Simply Floral Die-Cut, popped up with foam tape; a couple of Chasing Dreams Die-Cut triangles; a Silver Cut-Apart Label, used to house the place, Melting Pot, and day, February 5, 2016, that the photo was taken; and scattering of Crystal 4mm and Rose Pink Sequins complete the look.
Before I run, I also wanted to make you aware of a few great grabs happening this month over at Pretty Little Studio.  A FREE sheet of stickers will be added to carts containing the purchase of 10 individual sticker sheets.
It's Your Birthday Collection embellishments are 50% off throughout the month of May...
and while you're picking up some of those goodies, the May Cut-Apart Sheet Freebie will be added to your carts.
If your totals happen to contain $35 or more worth of products, the May Cloud Die-Cut Freebies will be added to your carts, too.  Woohoo!  LOVE these!
I think that covers things, for now, folks.  Thanks, as always, for visiting, and have a wonderful Wednesday!
