JULY 2020 CHALLENGE - Pinkfresh Studio

Hi there!

It is time for a new challenge for Pinkfresh Studio.  This month we are celebrating SUMMER with a fun color palette and the gorgeous Let's Stay Home collection. 

Though i am not a fan of red, i really love how  it  brought so much vibrancy to the page, so i decided to mix it with the other colors to soften it a bit, and the best way to do it is with watercolor.

I used Aquamarine, Sky Blue, Clementine, Candy apple and Bubble Gum Liquid Watercolor ( all Pinkfresh Studio) to construct the color background for the page.   

To bring more of the color palette to the page, i decided to use the  new Rubber Cling on: Popout Chevron background to heat embossed the chevrons to the side of the page.  This took a bit of help form a stamping platform, as i first stamped the PFS dye ink, then added embossing ink and crystal clear embossing powder on top .  IF you see up close the texture of the chevrons resembles water droplets - this was a result of the two inks mixing-.

I used papers and embellishments from the Let's Stay Home collection to back the two pictures of the kids at the pool.  I made sure to chose papers that followed the color order, i have on the background, so that i can easily add embellishments in a tone-on-tone fashion.  With so many embellishments it was so easy to create clusters at the photo corners.

To bring some of the pink of the palette, i trimmed the page about 1/2 in from the bottom, and added a strip of the pink Chevron in its place.  I used this area to add my title, trying to combine all the colors and embellishments of the day!

Just love how this turned out with the red and all!  Make sure to check the Pinkfresh Studio blog for more details on the challenge ( you could win prizes to the PFS shop), and all the materials i used in this page.
