Hello Pinkfresh Studio friends! It's Jung here, and today I'm sharing a layout featuring the new collection: Indigo Hills 2. This collection is absolutely stunning! I love the moody deep colors, but also the soft elements of this collection as well, like the hand drawn elements and the delicate florals.
When I saw the Meadow paper, I immediately knew I wanted to fussy cut the wreath. I chose a photo of my husband & I taken on our recent 14th wedding anniversary. I thought the earth tones of the photo would compliment the colors in this collection nicely!
After I carefully cut out the wreath, i got to work on my background. On a piece of white cardstock, I used some of the Pinkfresh Studio watercolors. I mixed the colors to match the tones of the wreath. I used sapphire, emerald city, lavender, bubble gum, and I used the tiniest bit of espresso to tone down the brightness of the colors. Using a small brush, I just splattered the paint in a circular pattern on the cardstock. I used a small ink dabber for the green. Once dry, I adhered the wreath with strips of foam squares. I was careful not to add any of the foam to the tips of the leaves so I could curl them up for texture.
I added a pattern paper layer behind my photo...oh, it was so hard to cut into the Eminence paper, because I love it so much! I'm trying to be better at using my supplies rather than hoard them, so to the paper trimmer I went. Then, I embellished around my photo. The pink flower is another fussy cut element from the Glen paper, and I used pieces from the wood stickers (REAL LIFE), cardstock stickers (forever young), and chipboard stickers (being with you is my favorite).
After adding my journaling and date, I was done! I love how my layout turned out...I really love the wreath!!!
I also participated in the Pinkfresh Studio Monthly challenge for September. You can get all the details (awesome giveaway opportunity), and upload your project in the blog post HERE. This challenge is an "inspired by" challenge. I was inspired by fellow DT member Lorilei.
Here is what I came up with:

I hope I've inspired you to get crafty. Please be sure to check out the new Indigo Hills 2 collection, and also participate in the monthly challenge.
