Pretty Little Studio: One in a Melon!

Saturday, September 14, 2019

Morning, y'all!  Just stopping back in, on this gorgeous, sunny day, to share another summer-inspired page for Pretty Little Studio.  It happens to be up on the blog this am; and I always love to share my creations with you all here, too.  Enjoy!
I started this page by adding puddles of bright pink and yellow watercolors to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then splattered it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as navy, aqua, and orange watercolors and Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints, and stamped it, in Jet Black ink, with the grid background.  The watermelon was Cameo-cut from our Bee Happy, Sunny Day, and Laugh All Day prints, each of which happens to come from a different collection, as well as Basic Black cardstock, and anchored with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  I don't know if you can it in these pics, but I also made those seeds shine with Glossy Accents.  I then topped it with a favorite, summer photo of my beautiful girl, which was matted with white cardstock and backed with the Pineapple Juice, Picnic, Hey Girl!, and More Summer, as well as Sand Rose Gold Metallic, prints, some of which were simply torn to the right size.  I just love the texture that tearing a piece of paper creates.  An At the Beach Die-Cut label, etched with Aug. 2015, Be still my heart., was tucked in the paper layers along the left side of the photo.
The cluster over the top, left corner of the photo consists of a Bloom Die Cut, "you are one in a melon." Time to Relax Die Cut, and a Summertime Flair Button, all of which were popped up with layers of foam tape.
A duo of Best Days Die Cuts, paired with a "you are so cute" Summer Vibe Word Sticker...
turn our attention to the "one in a melon!" title, which was Cameo-cut from Basic Black cardstock...
and topped with an "adventures" Best Days Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, to complete the look.
I hope you all are having as much fun with the new, summer collections as I am!  Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Have an amazing day, friends!
