Pretty Little Studio: Kitten Hello

Saturday, June 15, 2019

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  I have a sweet page up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today and wanted to pop in here to share it, with you all, too.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding puddles and splatters of mint and yellow watercolors to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then used Out to Sea Clouds Die Cuts as masks to create a cloudy background by rubbing Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks over them before using a punchinella stamp to add texture with Brocade Blue, Pistachio Pudding, and Daffodil Delight inks and splattering everything once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  I also splattered over the Distress Inks with water, just because I love the way they react to it and the interest the effect adds to any project.
That set the stage for my photos which were matted with white cardstock and backed with lots of bits from 8x8 prints, including Taking a Walk, Acorn Granola, Stargazer, and Gold Metallic Confetti.  They were all anchored with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  I also tucked a Chrysanthemum Shipping Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow, as well as a "SUCH A GOOD STORY" Savannah Dreams 12x12 Paper Pack Die Cut, in behind its top, right edge.
The beautiful Susie anchors the right side of the photos and was the inspiration for my color palette.
A "hello" Frolic Word Die Cut was fitted between the base of my photos...
and the entire design was grounded with my journaling, which reads, This cutie appeared to be having the most difficult time staying in this pipe that we had stored under the back porch; when, all of a sudden, she jumped out & took off.  Then, low & behold, another cutie appeared.  Critter must've been pushing her out.  Sisters!
Live Simply Clear Stickers, April 2019 Freebie butterflies; and a Fall Phrases Cut-Apart label, used to record the May 6, 2013, date complete the look.
Before I run, I wanted to share the deliciously colorful June Cut-Apart Freebie with any purchase...
and June Freebie with any $35 purchase or more.  Be sure to pick up yours today!
Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Have a truly fabulous weekend, friends!
