Hi Pinkfresh Friends!
Anett Gelencsér here with my first blog post at Pinkfresh Studio. So happy to be here! I am sure you are all excited about the new, amazing Pinkfresh collections. I am waiting for the new goodies to arrive any minute YAY!!!!
I have two layouts to share today using the gorgeous Indigo Hills 2 collection! I really love this collection! I created a girl and a boy layout. For the girl layout, I used the free Mandala Snowflake cut-file. I cut it in several sizes and backed them with vellum. For the delicate lines, I used spray adhesive.
First I wanted you to make a monochrome layout, but then I thought no, I really need some color, so I took my Pinkfresh Liquid Watercolors and mixed them to match the rose and the purple of the fussy cut flowers from paper GLEN. I painted some loose strokes on white cardstock, and let the paint drops run. I did some splatters too of course. In my video, you can see the process. If you use vellum, be sure, your paper is dry, because, vellum buckles easily.
I arranged all the flowers and took a photo with my phone. This helps me to remember the design when gluing on everything. I only added glue to the center of the flowers, so I could bend up the petals. I tucked the fussy cut flowers under the petals of the vellum flowers. I did some layering under the photo and used foam adhesive.
In the picture, you can see my daughter when she was 5 years old. She and her little plush doggie, Bodri. She was always fond of dogs, and now she has her own real dog, a Maltese, Mex. I am sure you will see him on my layouts in the future.
For my second layout, I used paper Highland for a boy page. My son Vince was a cute baby with big brown eyes. I wanted to scrap this photo for so long!
I put some white acrylic paint on the right side of my background with a little sponge, and I created a cluster around my photo with ephemera, chipboard stickers, puffy stickers, wood stickers. I created my title with the puffy mini alphas on the journaling card ephemera. I went through the alphas with my sewing machine.
On the left side, I used my craft knife to cut two sides of the little triangles. I bent up and glued the edge. I used my sewing machine here as well. I tucked in some little fussy cut flowers from paper Glen. I think it looks great!
I hope these layouts inspire you to get creative! I might be the last one of the team to inspire you with the Indigo Hills 2 collection. But it is so beautiful, and perfect for documenting all your memories!
Thanks so much for visiting today!
