March Challenge / Pinkfresh Studio

Happy Monday, my friends!  The March Challenge is up over at Pinkfresh Studio, and it's a great one!  It's all about frames, and you can interpret that in any way you like.  These colors are perfect for the Super Cool collection, so that's what I used on my layout.

The Super Cool collection has a few papers that contain frames.  I cut lots of these frames out and printed three small photos to fit them.  I just layered the photos on top of the frames in a crooked manner and then layered more frames under them.  I glued them together and machine stitched through them to add some texture and pops of black.

I used a Super Cool paper as my background. I love all those little dots!  I covered a lot of it with white gesso, so that's why there are lots of faded areas.  This prepped the paper for the Liquid Watercolors.  I went with the Sky Blue and Aquamarine colors since there was a lot of red and yellow going on.  The blue is a nice contrast.  Here you can see the dimension from the frames....I added some adhesive foam under them to pop them up.  I added lots of fun puffy stickers, stickers and thread.  I fussy cut "like" from a different paper from Super Cool.

I used the Classic Words Die Set to cut this "love" piece.  I painted it with some black acrylic paint and tucked it in over on the right side cluster.  I made this cluster using more frames, die cuts and stickers.  I also popped it up using adhesive foam.

Frames are so fun to use because they're pretty versatile.  You don't have to put a photo in the dead center or even behind it.  There are no rules, so you can use them however you want :)  I wanted the color to show behind the photos, so I arranged the photos off center.

Here's another die cut from the Classic Words Die Set.

These speech bubbles are the coolest!  They're a little bit see through, so I layered some white cardstock behind them before popping them up.  That way they stay true to their color.

I splattered some watered down black acrylic paint at the end to pull some of the black from the photos.  I love all the phrases and sentiments in this collection!

Here are a few more close-ups :)

I went very short and simple with the title.  I wanted it to fit inside one of the small frames, and Hey Girl was perfect.

I hope that you'll join us in the challenge this month!  Go HERE to read all about it, and you could even win a $50 Gift Card to the Pinkfresh Studio Store!  Heck yes!

Maybe this layout will give you some fun ideas to try.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
