One of my other favourite patterns in this collection is the gorgeous diagonal stripe on “Around Our Hood” which I may have been hoarding!! Because I love it so much I didn’t want to cover it all up and decided on a clean design!
The first thing I did was to set aside all of the “stay home” and “walking” pieces; using a variety of stickers, ephemera and chipboard flair. Because I wasn’t sure exactly which pieces I would end up using on my design this was a good place to start.
Have you noticed that I have been using Annabelle acrylics on all of my pages this month?? There was no way I couldn’t include one on today’s layout and the “time together” worked perfectly! With my photo chosen, my title and my sub-title chosen I was now ready to start sticking! I built my title using an ephemera piece and again, the mini puffy alphas.
I matted my photo with 2 patterns from the 6×6 paper pad and tucked in some torn pink card stock. As I mentioned above, I LOVE this pattern paper and as I added embellishments I kept them grouped closely together.
I really love the flow of my page and how everything is cascading from the top left to the bottom right; giving your eye a very clear line to follow. This came about as I just wanted to keep adding MORE of the fun pieces along that diagonal line. The way all of my pieces tuck in together and layer just makes my heart happy!
I wrote in a couple of sentences about the photo and my story. Lastly, I added in some enamel dots in 3 places and a sprinkling of grey ink using Distress Oxide in Hickory Smoke.
Well, that wraps up my shares using Pink Fresh Studio’s “Let’s Stay Home” collection. I really love that I have been able to use this collection for a variety of stories and “styles.” And one final process video for you!
I hope that you have enjoyed my shares and I look forward to sharing more inspiration in the near future! Until next time take care, stay safe and happy scrapping!
