I used some of the pink flamingo cardstock from the Cardstock Kit as my base and covered a lot of it in white gesso. I used a mix of the Shimmerz Creameez Great Fruit from the Color Kit & the Prima Oil Pastels from the August Color Kit to create the background. I decided to bring in a lot of die cuts & ephemera to layer in behind my photo. Since my girls are wearing navy blue, I brought in pops of that.
I love this mix of product & color here. I stitched through the Pinkfresh Studio alphas with gold thread. I created a little cluster underneath the title using some of the Maggie Holmes chipboard and gold foil stickers & a Simple Stories Posh floral sticker & brad. My journaling fit right under the title very nicely. Behind the title I used a "LOVE" die cut that was from one of the cut file sets this month. It's mainly just a small detail.
Here's a great shot of the background. Those oil pastels are awesome, and they look fabulous when you smudge them with your finger. I also added ink splatters using some other Shimmerz from my stash. I used some Simple Stories paper behind my photo and then used foam to raise it up.
I fussy cut this ampersand from one of the Dear Lizzy papers and layered it on top of a Simple Stories tag and a fussy cut flower from Maggie Holmes. I also fussy cut some of those cute foiled hearts from a Simple Stories patterned paper. I love mixing and matching products like this...paper, chipboard, brads, enamel dots....you get some really fun detail & texture.
Here is the top of the photo. I layered in one of the Pinkfresh Studio wood veneer pieces, some Crate Paper chipboard and more of the foil stickers. I added in some teal tangled thread for extra pops of that color.
I fussy cut this "gather memories" piece from the Crate Paper die cut pack. It's an acetate piece, and it tucked in very nicely right here. I had to splatter some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine to finish it off. We did get that in a Color Kit several months ago :)
