Hi there and welcome back to the Anna’s blog for one last share of mine using the Pink Fresh Studio’s “Let’s Stay Home” collection, “Slow Days and Long Walks.”
One of my other favourite patterns in this collection is the gorgeous diagonal stripe on “Around Our Hood” which I may have been hoarding!! Because I love it so much I didn’t want to cover it all up and decided on a clean design!
The first thing I did was to set aside all of the “stay home” and “walking” pieces; using a variety of stickers, ephemera and chipboard flair. Because I wasn’t sure exactly which pieces I would end up using on my design this was a good place to start.
Have you noticed that I have been using Annabelle acrylics on all of my pages this month?? There was no way I couldn’t include one on today’s layout and the “time together” worked perfectly! With my photo chosen, my title and my sub-title chosen I was now ready to start sticking! I built my title using an ephemera piece and again, the mini puffy alphas.
I matted my photo with 2 patterns from the 6×6 paper pad and tucked in some torn pink card stock. As I mentioned above, I LOVE this pattern paper and as I added embellishments I kept them grouped closely together.
I really love the flow of my page and how everything is cascading from the top left to the bottom right; giving your eye a very clear line to follow. This came about as I just wanted to keep adding MORE of the fun pieces along that diagonal line. The way all of my pieces tuck in together and layer just makes my heart happy!
I wrote in a couple of sentences about the photo and my story. Lastly, I added in some enamel dots in 3 places and a sprinkling of grey ink using Distress Oxide in Hickory Smoke.
Well, that wraps up my shares using Pink Fresh Studio’s “Let’s Stay Home” collection. I really love that I have been able to use this collection for a variety of stories and “styles.”
I hope that you have enjoyed my shares and I look forward to sharing more inspiration in the near future! Until next time take care, stay safe and happy scrapping!
