Hey, y'all! Just popping in to share a page that kicked off a week of fall-inspired projects over on the Pretty Little Studio blog earlier this week. It was inspired by our Feels Like Fall and Indian Summer Collections. I've also managed to incorporate bits and pieces from six additional collections throughout my design. I know that I've said it before, but I'm going to say it again. I love the way Pretty Little Studio's collections weld together so effortlessly for endless hours of creative fulfillment. Check out how they inspired me this go around!
I started this page by adding puddles of bright pink and yellow watercolors to a 11-1/2" square piece of watercolor paper. I then splattered it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as purple, aqua, and orange watercolors, and Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints. I also rubbed a little Spun Sugar Distress Ink, through a lattice stencil and over the watercolor work, behind where my photo would set, before trimming the right and bottom edges of the prepped piece with the Indian Summer: Fall Sunset 12" x 12" print. The photo itself crowns a stack of prints, including the Indian Summer: Pear Salad and Feels Like Fall: Feeling Lovely and Feeling Refreshed Gold Vellum prints, the first two of which were anchored with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching, as well as a snippet of cheesecloth for added texture. A couple of Happy Place and Beautiful Colors Die-Cut pumpkins, popped up with foam tape, dress up its bottom, right corner.
while a sweet, Indian Summer: Happy Place Die-Cut fox crowns it.
I then sandwiched that same photo, as well as the smaller one, which was framed with an Indian Summer: Timeless Die Cut and topped with an Indian Summer: Goodbye Summer Die-Cut, "CUTE FAMILY" tab, on a length of Baker's Twine, between a collection of fall-themed ephemera, including a "collect moments" Beautiful Day: Everyday Words Flair Button...
Indian Summer: Vellum Leaves Die Cuts; Beautiful Day: Greenery Die Cuts; Tales & Dreams: Rainbow Vibes Die-Cut "remember"; Potpourri: Fall Leaves Vellum Die Cuts; Indian Summer: Happy Place, "cherish this", phrase die cut, popped up with foam tape...
Let's Go: Feather Die Cuts; Oakley Avenue: Fall Away Arrow; and a "picking a pumpkin" Feels Like Fall: Fall Word Sticker, popped up with foam tape. I also threw in a couple of Freckled Fawn metal leaves and leaf pin for added texture and interest. A scattering of Potpourri: Falling Leaves Sequins and stamped, in Jet Black ink, OCT 25 2019, date complete the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Wednesday and an even more terrific fall, friends! XOXO
