Hello Pinkfresh Studio fans! 

I was so excited to work with the beautiful Live More collection!  I love the mix of fun colors and patterns, and all the sentiments and embellishments are perfect for my kind of layouts.  I decided to scrap a close-up pool photo of my daughter for this page.  I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe and backed the circles with patterned papers from the 6x6 Paper Pad a few of the larger sheets.  I love doing this because it allows me to use lots of different colors and patterns all over the page without being too overwhelming.  I added foam adhesive behind the cut file and add some dimension and layered my photo under one of the circles.  To jazz up the background, I first added some white gesso.  Next, I added lots of blue and aqua watercolor.  I wanted it to look like she was coming out of the water, and the paint achieved that.  I embellished around the photo with some stickers, puffy stickers, die cuts and a pretty metal clip.  I had so much fun putting this together!


or my second layout, I was inspired by the big yellow letters MORE on one of the patterned papers.  I decided to fussy cut it and use it as a big title element.  I combined two patterned papers to create a fun diagonal background.  I used a lot of white gesso to fade out some of the pattern and then used a lot of watercolor to add all the blue and aqua.  Once that dried, I used a plus sign stencil and some modeling paste to add some bumpy texture to the background.  I added in some coral color and a bit of bright green as well.  I love how the bright yellow letters and black & white photos pop off the bright colored background.  I added some adhesive foam and some tangled thread under my photos for dimension and texture.  I went a little crazy with embellishments!  I couldn’t resist from using lots of the phrase stickers, puffy stickers, metal clips and some chipboard stickers.  I created a vertical cluster up top and a smaller one down below.  I broke the title up by adding the letters “OF” using the acrylic letters and then cutting “this” on my Cameo in white cardstock.  I love mixing and matching my alphas for title work.  I used one of the die cut tags for my journaling.


I love how my layouts turned out!  A huge thank you to Pinkfresh Studio for having me as a Guest Designer!
