Hey friends! I am so excited to be sharing my first couple layouts using the Just A Little Lovely collection. I am so in love with the colors in this collection. My first layout uses the Highlight 12x12 paper from the Just A Little Lovely collection.
I added about a 3 1/2 inch strip of the paper along the top of my page and a 1/2 inch strip along the bottom. I knew I wanted to pull out the beautiful purple color in this paper so I decided to add some color to the background. I pulled out the Pinkfresh Studio watercolors and used the color Lavender on my page. I also used one ink pad from my stash.
I applied a little bit of gesso to my paper before adding water and color to my page. I added the watercolor to an acrylic block with a couple squirts of water and let it drip onto my page. I took some clear packing and smooshed it around the page. I also used my paint brush to sprinkle on the color. I love how it turned it out.
My next layout uses a beautiful Pinkfresh Studio cut file that I could not wait to cut out on my Silhouette! The new cut files are coming soon and we can not wait to share them all with you!
I started by backing the file with papers from the Just A Little Lovely. I used a white piece of cardstock for my base and added some color using ink pads from my stash.
The photo I am using is printed in black and white. It is of our youngest son Liam Jay and his favorite Sloth. He is snuggled up on my chest sleeping and just looks precious. I snapped a quick photo of him and I just love it to pieces! I embellished around the photo using ephemera, puffy stickers and a wood button from the collection. I also used the tiny alpha puffy stickers to create my title and placed it on the cut file.
You get so many alphas in this pack and the colors are just dreamy! To finish off my layout I added a strip of pattern paper from the collection to the top and bottom of my layout. I added a few of the gold glitter enamel dots around the page as well. Here is a look at my completed layout.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope are inspired to get a little inky and use some watercolors and mists on your next project.
