I alternated using patterned papers in some letters and using the Prima Oil Pastels from the Color Kit to create color shading in the other ones. I machine stitched around each painted letter and then embellished all around the layout.
This was a very different color scheme for me, but I love how it looks. I really loved using those pastels to create the shading in the letters. It just took a little bit of color and a little bit of water to blend it. I used one of the Dear Lizzy Thicker words as a smaller part of the title. I also used a fussy cut scalloped piece that was black, but I lightened it up using the white pastel.
I used a few die cuts & Project Life cards to layer behind my photo here, and I layered some of the Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life clear stickers and die cuts. That cute wood veneer arrow is from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away collection. I finished this area off with some grey tangled thread.
I'm obsessed with how this looks! The grey pastel looks so good blended with water! Here I added another heart die cut, more clear stickers and a fussy cut doilie. I think the machine stitching really gave the letters a nice pop and clean edge.
I'm so happy I decided to mix and match with the patterned papers. Everything coordinates yet each letter is different.
Here's one more close up of the top area. I added more clear stickers and another Pink Paislee wood veneer.
Here's my process video for this page. I think it turned out well considering I improvised without being able to use my Cameo. I hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for visiting me today....enjoy your Friday!
