Hello lovely Pinkfresh friends!

I'm so happy you joined me for my last blogpost for Pinkfresh Studio. With pain in my scrappy heart I have to let you know that I'm leaving the designteam in 2021, due to an expected busy scedule next year (big kitchen renovation, extra classes for my job, etc.).

I'm so thankful for meeting so many of you online and sharing this creative, crafty hobby. And I'm grateful for the opportunity to have worked with such gorgeous collections and wonderful people, who make Pinkfresh Studio such an amazing brand!

 

 

Okay, with that being said; let's take a look at my final layout, created with the beautiful Oh what fun collection.

My little family and I had a photoshoot between the Christmas trees. In this picture we throw some fake snow in the air. I love the sparkle the photo seems to have, so I immediately knew I wanted to use the paper 'Merriest wishes' as my background. 

 

 

I covered the paper with some transparent gesso. I used the watercolors Candy apple and a tiny bit of Sunshine and some white paint, to make a light pink color, to match the pink in the collection. I used the packaging technique to splash the paint around my layout. If you're not familiar with this technique, you can search for it on YouTube. Everybody can do this, and the result is always beautiful!

 

 

I backed my photo with vellum and some papers and cutaparts from the collection. The red card on the top of the photo is from the journaling bits. I used my scissors to distress the edges of the papers. I really seem to like this look lately. I also used a notebook borderpunch from my stash.

 

 

I fussycut some of the presents from the paper 'Christmas gifts' and used those, together with all the lovely bits and pieces from the collection, to build two clusters on both sides of the photo.

 

 

Ofcourse, I had to use the word 'twinkle' for my title, from the puffy phrase stickers; such a perfect fit! As a final, twinkling, touch I chose the golden yellow essentials jewels, to scatter around my clusters. 

 

 

I hope I've been able to inspire you, with this layout and ofcourse in the past year. Even though it's been such a weird and tough year for everyone of us, I'm so happy and grateful to be a part of this creative community! Thank you so, so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful, creative day. XOXO Else
