It is a new month! which means it is time for a new monthly challenge for Pinkfresh Studio, and this month, it is all about the florals and the beautiful warm palette.
I reached for the new Celebrate collection ( this is a collaboration with Altenew) for this layout. I just love the colors and florals in the collection.
I started by stamping the Floral Diamond Cling Rubber stamp with Misty Coast ink to a piece of the Progress paper. This was then attached to a larger piece of the This Day paper, and then to the background. Using a paper piercing tool, i created a stitching guide using the corners and lines from the stamp image, and hand stitched it all with white embroidery thread!
Once i finished ( it took a little while to stitch!), i fussy cut flowers from the Everyday Moments paper to create the floral cluster on the page.
I used the bottom edged of the stitched paper to add my cluster of florals, and nested the picture of my daughter along the flowers.
To follow the color palette, i added embellishments from the Let's Stay Home, and My Favorite Story collection along the cluster of flowers. I used the fabric bow to tie the two clusters together.
I created a small cluster at the top of the stitched paper and added the title of the page using a combination of alphas from My Favorite Story and Let's Stay Home collections.
just love how this turned out. You can always join in the challenge in the Pinkfresh Studio blog and have the chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the shop!
