I've been working on a lot of Maui photos lately. The beautiful Indigo Hills collection from Pinkfresh Studio has just the color palette and icons that are perfect for these photos. This one is a favorite (I have so many!). It's a replica of a photo we took on our honeymoon - same spot, same pose, many lifetimes later.
This design started with the title. Right smack in the center of the page, bold blue and inside the blue space of the photo. I love how it underlines the "us" in the picture.
Stitching and movement are two of my go-to design techniques. Here they also ground the circle word die cuts and heart chipboard. I used the So Sweet Stamp Set to create the paint splotch effect around the circles. Splattering paint sometimes makes me nervous since I'm not that great at it. A stamp with three sets of splotches like this is golden!
The veneer clip from Indigo Hills holds the photo cluster together and adds a nice pop of gold to the layout.
Next, let's take a look at something I've been doing more and more lately - cards! These feature some of the new Pinkfresh stamp sets and more of the Indigo Hills collection.
Simple cards with bold sentiments are quick and easy to make. That's perfect for a beginner like me. I love how the words are the focus in both of these cards.
The background here was created by blending some Distress Ink and a little help from the star stamp in the cluster of stars in the Dream On Stamp. The sentiment is from the Best Things Stamp Set and is perfectly framed in a bed of stars. The whimsical balloon is from the Hello Hello Set. I like to combine multiple stamp sets to get just the right look.
This was a quick and simple one with a bold black sentiment from the So Sweet Stamp Set and pretty patterned hearts from the Indigo Hills Stamp Set.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I've been blogging and editing video like mad - catching up after a long lazy summer and a crazy busy September!
