Agnus | Pocket Pages - Pink Paislee's Oh My Heart

Posted by Agnus K on

Hi again, I'm back with another project life spread using the fun 'Oh My Heart' collection by Pink Paislee. 

I have gone with a softer colour palette compared to my previous week's mixed media pockets, but they still flow nicely and there are definitely elements that carry over across both lots of pages. 

Inspired by the cute scalloped design from one of the papers in the range, I cut out several scallops and stitched them onto a gradient background. I used my date stamp with one of the gorgeous rose gold foiled cardstock designs and added a few of the lovely charms to create my date card. 

I added a few more of pieces from the foiled cut-apart sheet to create some quick and easy filler cards.

I decided to print all of my landscape photos on a smaller scale this week to allow me to add more colour with the bright patterned paper designs. I repeated the stitching elements by framing a few of the my pics - adding some random metallic paint splatters to tie in with the foiled elements throughout the pockets. 

 I had a bit of a play with the new Color Philosophy Ink Pads from Prima, and loved that I was able to create some soft watercolour effects by simply adding water. To do this, I simply applied the ink onto my stamp block them used a wet brush to pick up the colour then used it in the same way I would use watercolour paint to create a few custom backgrounds. Once dry I used the same ink colours to stamp images and phrases onto my backgrounds. 

Using one of my 'inked' cards for my son's first day back at school.

I often repeat the same elements across both pages to keep things looking balanced - in this case using more scallops and stitched frames.  

Here are those scallops again - this time as a guide for my journal strips for this card. I have also used one of the planner stamps to help tell my story over the foiled cut-apart. 

 I found a good use for my other 'inked' card, although I do realise now that I made it slightly a bit too short ;)

Repeating those scallops again with another stitched frame, and because simple and quick ways to dress up your pockets are always a plus - why not let the products do the work for you with more beautiful foiled details.
