Pretty Little Studio: Good Times

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Morning, y'all!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today with another page, inspired by the beautiful Indian Summer Collection.  Enjoy!  Oh, and I apologize, in advance, for all the fuzzies on my pics.  It must be that time of year.
I started this page by trimming the left side of a 12" x 12" piece of watercolor paper with a portion of our 12" x 12" Cornucopia print.  Y'all, I totally didn't need to use watercolor paper as my neutral here.  It's just a bit of a habit for me.  Plus, I love the way it absorbs mixed media.  Anyhow, I then splattered everything with Sunshine and Orchard Mister Huey's; Wedding Pink, Fully Purple, and Strawberry Cream Glimmer Mists (These are hands-down my favorite mists of all time!); and Gold Color Shine.  Once it was dry, I anchored that Indian Summer print with lots of gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching, before topping it with my trio of stacked photos, which were all matted with white cardstock.  A "good TIMES" Fun Day Offset Title Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, creates my title, which was crowned with a Time Together Die Cut, as well as a Love This Flair Button, and nestled into a happy collection of Pumpkin Spice, Time Together, and Leaves Vellum Die Cuts.
A "change is in the air" Beautiful Colors Die-Cut pennant was popped up with foam tape amidst the floral goodness...
which utilizes a few September 2019 Freebie leaves to guide the eye down a couple of Goodbye Summer Die-Cut strips, anchored with more gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching...
to the darling, little, Happy Place Die-Cut mushrooms, popped up with foam tape, near the bottom of the page.
The bottom photo was topped with a Goodbye Summer Die-Cut tab, etched with the Sept. 19, '12, date, as well as a Beautiful Colors Die-Cut word bubble, which was popped up with foam tape and used to house a little journaling.  The place of the visit portrayed in these photos, Shatto Dairy Farm w/ the homeschool troop, was hand-written, vertically, to the left of this same photo.
The middle photo was topped with a trio of Goodbye Summer Die-Cut phrases (I don't remember what the frown on Adina's face was all about here.  I gave up on those perfect shots long ago.  It's just life.)...
and the top photo was wrapped with a length of white string, tied in a bow, to complete the look.
I hope that you all are leaving here inspired and having a fabulous fall.  Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Be blessed!
