12×12 | Latte Love

Welcome to the weekend, friends!  It’s Jinny here today.  I’ll be off to a pancake breakfast, for my big kiddo’s basketball team, in just a bit; but before I get started cooking for it, I’ve got a page to share.  I’m diving, once again, into Ashley Horton’s Oakley Avenue Collection.  Gosh, I love it so!


I started this page by stamping the “XO”, from our Cedar Clear Stamp Set, in Jet Black ink, randomly trickling from the top to bottom of my 12×12 watercolor paper, base page.  I then covered the left 4″ of it with strips of a number of prints from this collection and anchored them with black-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  A little, watercolor wash sets the foundation for my photograph, which was matted with white cardstock.  Before adhering it over a happy mix of prints, which were anchored with more black-threaded, machine stitching, as well as a bit of vellum, to soften all the rich colors, I rubbed Wild Honey Distress Ink through a triangle stencil and splattered everything with the same watercolors used above, along with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  I also tucked a Cameo-cut, from Daffodil Delight cardstock, Leafy wreath behind my photo stack.  The bottom left corner of that stack was then embellished with a cluster, consisting of Weathered Frames and Feelin’ Fallish Die Cuts; a Foxy Fall Flair Button; and a length of Baker’s Twine, tied in a bow.


The design was topped with a “Latte Love” Feelin’ Fallish Die Cut and “crisp air” Pumpkin Mini Words and “HOT CHOCOLATE” Hello Fall Cut-Aparts.  The first two were popped up with foam tape.

jinnyA couple more Weathered Frames and Feelin’ Fallish Die Cuts ground the page, alongside a Basic Black, Cameo-cut, cardstock “Saturday”, which I coated with Glossy Accents for added interest and texture.


A little, hand-penned journaling, grounded with a Feelin’ Fallish Die-Cut scallop, and trio of Fall Words Stickers, thrown into the mix, complete the look.


Thanks, as always, for popping in!  I hope you get some time to play with paper this weekend.  Hugs!
