Fabulous & Fancy / Pinkfresh Studio

Happy Thursday, friends!  I have a new layout to share today for Pinkfresh Studio featuring the Joyful Day collection and the Liquid Watercolors.  I love the bright and fun colors in this line!  For this layout, I was inspired by the Perfect Moment paper and all those fun frames.  I fussy cut them out and arranged them in a layered design under a torn piece of the Big Ideas paper.  I scrapped two fun photos of me and my daughter using a funny Snapchat filter, and that pretty periwinkle blue color is a great contrast for them.


I love how these frames look layered on top of each other.  I embellished around my photos using stickers, puffy stickers and a cute fabric banner.  I also added a few more pops of color with some tangled thread.


Before I began embellishing, I coated my background cardstock with white gesso.  I even went over some of the frames and a little bit at the top on the blue paper.  I used the Liquid Watercolors to create a pretty watercolor effect down on the bottom half of the page.  I used lots of blues and pinks, and I also added some gold ink splatters.  I used some of the puffy word stickers and alphas for my title.  Here you can also see where I added more stickers and mixed embellishments.


Looking back, I should've applied the gesso before adhering all the little frames, but I didn't.  I wound up putting gesso over the frames a little bit but in the end you can't really tell.  I love how the edges curl up and make it more dimensional.


I love seeing all the layers from the side angle.  I'm a firm believer in dimension and using adhesive foam!  It just really makes everything pop off the page.


Do you ever add mixed media to your layouts?  I really love creating my own backgrounds, and the Liquid Watercolors are so fun to play with.


I created a small cluster beneath the title using another fussy cut frame, and a few bows.


I had a great time layering all these bits and pieces together, and it was hard to not use everything on this one page because it all coordinated so perfectly.


I used a few of the chipboard frames as dimensional layers behind my photos.  I finished off the embellishing with more stickers, die cuts, puffy stickers and enamel dots...all from the Joyful Day collection.

I hope this inspires you to create something fun and bright with the Joyful Day collection!  It's a great line that is very versatile...it goes with all those great everyday photos, which are my favorite :)

Be sure to check out the Pinkfresh Studio YouTube channel to see this process video.  It will be on my channel soon :)

Have a great day, and thanks for checking in with me!
