Hello Pinkfresh Studio Fans!
It's Terhi Koskinen here inspiring you today with a fresh new idea of a double layout that isn't actually a double layout. Needs some explaining? Come and let me show you!
Some time ago I sat on our living room floor die cutting My Favourite Story papers with the beautiful Lacey Edgers 1 dies. This kind of Friday night fun isn't unusual for me - in fact, I often create on floor and I love dating my crafty stuff almost every night.
While I watched an old movie and sat the die cutting, I soon realized I had cut two sheets of patterned paper with the lovely Lacey Edgers. That's quite much of paper stripes with lace, even for me.
I'm not a fan of double pages, but I thought why not to try creating two separate scrapbook layouts with similar products. And later place them in to scrapbook album as a spread. That could be fun! And so I started on creating first one layout and then another.
To make the first page I started by creating a lace background by adhering the paper stripes to rainbow order. I used only foam dots to attach the stripes, to make sure I would make a lot of dimension at the same time.
I continued the process by adding the photographs with a piece of patterned paper as their frames. Again, I only used foam dots.
Before finishing, I added some fussy cut flowers around the photographs and decorated the pages with other embellishments.
There are also some more die cutting, as I used Dainty Blossoms Die Set to make coordinating flowers.
Last I finished the pages with watercolors, but flicking some very small drops around. This is one of my favorite ways to bring handmade look to the layouts.
What do you think, hot or not?
