12×12 | We Are Family

Hey, y’all!  It’s Jinny here today, sharing my first page showing off goodies from our newest collection, Beautiful Day.  To bring it to life, I used a photo of a family who holds a very special place in the hearts of the members of my own.  Enjoy!

I started this page by Cameo-cutting a Basic Heart from a piece of cardstock and using it as a stencil to create the stamped, in Jet Black ink, center text.  I added a few puddles of aqua and yellow watercolor over that, before splattering everything with those same shades of watercolor, as well as orange watercolor.  Once everything was dry, I applied white modeling paste, through a punchinella stencil, behind where my photo would lie before, once again, splattering everything, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  I then chose a handful of prints from the Beautiful Day Collection’s 6″ x 8″ Paper Pack, as well as a Currently Card and Sprinkles Bookmark, and secured them, some with orange-threaded, straight, machine stitching, behind my photo, which was matted with white cardstock and backed with a snippet of cheesecloth for texture.  Beginning to the photo’s left, I tucked a Salt Lake Clear Shipping Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow, under its edge and dressed the top left corner with a “TOGETHER IS THE BEST PLACE TO BE” Happy Ticket Die Cut, popped up with foam tape.

Moving clockwise, the photo was topped with a “TODAY” Walk in the Park Die Cut, popped up with more foam tape and sandwiched between a Live Happy Cut-Apart Mini Word and simple button, laced with white thread.  An Orange Butterfly Vintage Mini Die Cut rests on it and a Butterfly Bush Sticker, which is mimicked in the opposite diagonal corner, along with a couple of stamped, in Jet Black ink, phrases, complete the cluster.  I just love how those Marigold butterflies compliment this collection perfectly!

A Laura Tab, housing a hand-written 2016, was stapled to the top right corner of the photo and embellished with a single Colorful Blooms Die Cut.

More Colorful Blooms Die Cuts, some of which were layered with foam tape, ground the bottom right corner and highlight a “BE HAPPY” Happy Ticket Die Cut.

An “our journey” Paradise Phrase Strip, anchored by an “it’s the little things” Everyday Words Flair Button, as well as a couple of Hello Word Stickers, ground the entire design…

and a “we are FAMILY” title, formed from a stamped, in Jet Black ink, “we are” phrase and Park Bench Alphas to spell the word “FAMILY”, completes the look.

Thanks, as always, from humbling us with a visit!  Have a wonderful Wednesday, Pretty Little Studio friends!
