You Are Awesome! – Pink Fresh Studio – Keeping it Real – Wendy Meffan

Hi Magpies! We’re into April and lots of gorgeous new collections are arriving, This month, I have chosen Pinkfresh Studio Keeping it Real collection as it prompts me to document our  pandemic  life, but can still be used for general photos. For my first LO I decided to showcase some of the paper designs so created a diamond backdrop using three of the designs. I stitched around them and distressed the edges and attached them to the LO. I gutted the 12×12 Real Life paper and cutdown my 12×12 white cardstock to create a border.

I fussy cut the pieces from the 12×12 Big Mood paper which were relevant to my photos. and positioned them to each side of the photos. Then I mounted the photos on papers from the 6×6 paper pack.

I then cut some strips of paper in the same pattern as the diamonds and added them beneath the photos, I then added embellishments from the embellishment pack and the floral embellishment pack, along with the ‘awesome’ sticker from the puffy phrase sticker sheet

Above the photos I added a few more embellishments and some enamel dots.

Finally I journalled in the paper strips to explain the photos.

I had some great ice cream photos and as soon as I saw the ice cream ephemera I know what I was going to do! I chose the 12×12 Big Mood paper and scalloped the edge to look like an ice cream stall covering. I then stitched over the edges and added three layers, and attached  an enamel dot to each scallop.

I chose to use a 6×4 photo to show off the ice creams and then I matted it from the 6×6 paper pack. I chose the houses from the ephemera pack which were cafe and shop based.

I cut small strips from the 6×6 paper pack and used a scalloped border punch and added the strips below the photo.

I then added the ‘ice cream is cheaper than therapy ‘3×4 journal card from the cut apart sheet. I added a few pieces of ephemera above the photo and then used some mixed media splatters in water colour and white acrylic paint.

Finally I added the Right Now puffy phrase sticker in the top of the LO as a title.

I was pleased with these LO and although this collection is predominantly for the pandemic it has lots of beautiful flowers and ephemera which can be used on other themes.

Why not take a look in the shop at this new collection and all the others that have arrived recently.
