Pinkfresh Mix Up | Julie Taylor
Hello Magpies, Julie back with you again today sharing 2 layouts using a mix up of some of the Pinkfresh Studio products in store. I love mixing collections & as they all come from the same manufacturer the colours always match well together, meaning you can pile it all on!!! great news for me!!
I chose to go with a colour scheme for my first layout. This can be a good starting point when using multiple collections as you can get a bit overwhelmed with all the products available so this way you can cut it down. I went with blue & yellow, a fave of mine & one I use time & time again.
I first added a bit of ink, through a stencil, going with yellow on the right & blue on the left, & added some splatters & a touch of background stamping.
I added some paper layers, vertically, in the centre, along with some trims, labels & machine stitching. I also added a die cut leaf sprig, which I inked, cut from the Leafy Branch Die from Pinkfresh Studio.
I matted my photo & added to the right of the central column & then went to town with all the yellow & blue embellishments I could find!!!
The lemons have nothing to do with my page but add a lovely pop of colour & I’m all for adding a random embellishment if need be!!!
Keep it Real
My second layout uses more colours, but like I say, because they’re from the same manufacturer they all go together & don’t clash.
The first paper I pulled out was the striped piece across the top of the patterned paper so drew inspiration using those colours & because it had lots of colours in it anything went really. I chose the main patterned paper, as it wasn’t to loud, & ripped two 3rds of it & added to my page, tucking in the stripped paper above it.
This then gives me a tuck in point for my first photo cluster. By adding lots of ephemera I drew that cluster across, to the centre & then carried it down, onto the patterned paper.
I could have left my layout there but as I had another photo I added another cluster down on the bottom right.
by mirroring the first cluster, with embellishments & colours, it ties in perfectly & doesn’t look out of place even though I’ve used different collections. The title & a few hand stitched crosses finish it off.
I hope I have inspired you to take out your collections, from the same manufacturer, & get mixing them together to create something unique.
Until next time
