Staying at home is not so bad for someone! | Cristina Sales

Hey there welcome back to the Pinkfresh Studio blog, Cristina here today with two new projects made with the brand new collection Let's Stay home!!! Yeahhhhhh.... how beautiful is this new collection? So shine colors full of new designs to document your staying at home during this long lockdown.

I have to confess you It's not been so hard working by home, but I know someone who didn't had any problem too. I have two kittens and the older of the two greatly appreciated this period when the rhythms in the house were so slow that they almost no longer existed.

I decided to make a page to keep memory of her and the lazy daily rhythm she had during this lockdown.

This page also has made to inspiration for the june challenge following the moodboard and the rules. On the facebook group you can find all the details to join in so don't hesitate to make your own project and share it in the member forum because the prize is really amazing.

The second one was made for the june challenge, here you can find the folder to add your project if you want to join in following the mood board image inside the folder.

These are my very first projects made with this new collection Let's stay home and the watercolor paints I just received from Pinkfresh Studio. I totally fell in love for colors and the way they turned out when totally dry.

I had a pic with beautiful hot pink and blue colors that perfectly fit with those of the designs so I mixed watercolor paints candy apple and sapphire with water, to have the right colors and this is what happened. 

Since I had chosen a white cardstock to add paints on, I decided to make a mixed media effect using one of the most beautiful new product from Pinkfresh Studio the rubber big stamps. I chose one that was perfect to have the right effect I was looking for, abstract cube.

I had a leftover paints on an acetate sheet so I used this paint on the rubber stamp and spread it on the white cardstock. Such a pretty cute effect!

When my watercolor background was dry I started to create my composition. I used some stripes from the hold on and the cover of the 12x12 collection pack paper sheets. I added them to the bottom and to the up side of the white cardstock. Then I stitched them using my stitch machine.

To add a floral touch I used the just because clear stamp underneath the stripes and the word as part of my title.

I cut this lovely cut file floral tag and I added the flowers all around my pic. I used some elements by the journaling beats, flair chipboard pieces, ephemera pack, mini puffy stickers alpha and enamel dots to complete my page.

My title was made using the phrase builder hello die set that si so amazing to make any kind of phrase composition.

The second one page was made with a patterned paper whit white and pink chevron I really love, best place to be. I used two stripes of paper to create a "L", hold on and hope for a new day and I stitched the vertical one using my stitch machine.

I used several ephemera die-cut, fabric bows, flair chipboard pieces, and enamel dots to complete my composition.

I used the just because clear stamp and combo die set using the blue embossing powder. A floral touch was a right way to complete my page.

 

To add a mixed media touch I spread some blue drops by the sterry night ink cube mixed with water and as a final touch some gesso spread using a watercolor brush.

Here is the process video to follow me during the making.

Thank you so much for joining me today and see you to the next post.
