Let's stay home in a lovely summer | Cristina Sales

Hi beautiful Pinkfresh Studio community, Cristina here today with you to share two projects I made using the brand new collection Let's Stay home. 

This project was inspired by the july challenge with those amazing mood colors and summer theme.

To join in please check the Pinkfresh Studio blog following this link.

The first project that I show you is a layout that takes me back in time to a very fun summer in which I had seen a dear friend with whom I spent an entire weekend.

I created a background with Pinkfresh Studio watercolors mixed with water because they are very pigmented and then I applied the color with a piece of acetate.

I chose candy apple, bubble gum and aquamarine

To have a very strong effect I chose two standalone stamps that are really perfect to create amazing background, abstract cube and do what you love. I really love use stamps with different fonts and this one is really one of my favorite.

To create the composition I cut out the triangles from the better things are ahead patterned paper chosing those ones had the colors that perfectly matched with my color background.

A delicate touch should be great to create a contrast with the strong background so I decided to use the intricate mandala die set underneath my pic.

Some puffy stickers, enamel dots and die-cuts elements completed my page.

My title was made using the beautiful phrase builder die-set full of useful words to make any kind of projets, layout and mini album of course! Love this set.

The second project I made is a mixed media page too but to make the watercolor background I chose the ink cubes, that are totally fine to have beautiful effect too. 

The ink cube used are the fairy dust and the starry night. I used a little bit color on an acetate piece and then I mixed them with water and using an acrylic bloc I spread the color on the sheet.

To follow me on the making I provided a process video and you can find the direct link at the bottom of this post.



This time I decided to use the 6x6" paper pad and cut out many square pieces in different sizes, because in this size of sheets designs are a little bit little than 12x12" one and I totally love them.

Then I made a composition using the foam double side adhesive to create movement and a very cute 3d effect.

I added some stitch to have a very strong effect.

When my composition by square pieces was done I started to embellish my page, I used ephemera die-cut, enamel dots, and puffy stickers.

I was completely satisfied with the result! 

At the end I decided to add a little bit color using a watercolor brush and I spread some drops of gesso all around the my pic.

I finally created the title using the little puffy aphas and the amazing hello die set - phrase builder, I really love how it turned out and this die set is so versatile and useful to create any kind of title in any way on pages and mini book. So cute!

I hope you like my page and I hope you can get any kind of inspiration by it using this amazing new collection by Pinkfresh Studio.

Here is my process video:

Bye.
