Pinkfresh Studio 5th Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Friday, friends!  Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio 5th Birthday Blog Hop!  I'm so excited to be participating in this awesome milestone celebration of such a wonderful company.


You should have arrived here from the Pinkfresh Studio Blog.

There are so many designers taking part in this Blog Hop, so make sure you check them all out.  There are prizes to be given away...woo hoo!  There will be 3 Grand Prizes given away on the Pinkfresh Studio Blog:

  • A full set of the PFS Liquid Watercolors
  • Set of the 3 newest paper collections
  • Entire April Essentials Die Release 

Each designer is also giving away a $25 Gift Card...all you have to do is leave a comment on each blog to be entered to win one!  Easy!  The winners will be announced on Sunday, April 14th on the Giveaway Page.  You must check this page to see if you're a winner, and you must claim your prize within two weeks. 

Here is a new layout I created using the new Out & About collection.  It has really inspired me to scrap some of my travel photos.  The colors are just so pretty, and I love all the different embellishments!  I focused on the Tickets paper here, and I decided to cut a lot of them out and scatter them around my background.  I used a few more patterned papers on top of some white cardstock and added lots of the Liquid Watercolors.


These tickets reminded me of stamps.  I used an edge distresser to tear up the edges a little to give them more texture and dimension.  Some of them are raised up off the page with some adhesive foam.  I also machine stitched through some of them with white and metallic gold thread.


I love tearing paper...the edges just look so cool, I think!  I love this rainbow striped paper.  I used a torn strip of it down towards the bottom to pull in all the colors from the tickets.  I went simple with my title here, and I mixed and matched some fonts.  I used the blue script alphas from the Joyful Day collection and painted them gold.  Isn't that little airplane puffy sticker so cute?


Layering creates such awesome dimension...these tickets where perfect for that!  Awww....look at my husband way over on the other aisle...haha.  He wanted the end, I wanted a window seat and to sit by my sister, so that's how we wound up sitting...haha!  As far as the background goes, I smudged a lot of white gesso down over the patterned paper.  It turned out really bright, and I didn't want that to overpower all those colorful tickets.  So I let it dry (almost) and then smudged more white gesso over it to soften it up.  I like how you ca see it through all the tickets.


I did add lots of colored thread to this page... my favorite!


I wanted to bring in a pop of navy blue down here at the bottom, so I did that with some thread.  I also created a cluster of embellishments to the left of my journaling.


Here's the cluster.  I used Out & About Stickers, Die Cuts, Puffy Stickers...everything is so cute!


And here are a few more close-ups to finish.



I hope this inspires you in some way...I really love this collection and how it beautifully showcases any travel photos you may have.  Be sure to check out my process video here for all the details!
