June Recipe Challenge at The Studio Challenges

Sunkissed Morning – a layout for The Studio Challenges


Start: With this recipe:

  • Sewing
  • Lace
  • Pink
  • Paint or ink splatters
  • Enamel Dots
  • Kraft colour
  • A star
  • Stenciling
  • Doily
A smart scrapper would pull all those elements together at the start – but no, not me.  I wanted to use the Kelly Purkey free NSD printables with this photo, so I added the rest as I went along.  The only sewing I did was to cross-stitch three Xs.

It was fun to discover what little bits and bobs I could add to fill out the list.  I took my title from the line of Basic Grey die-cuts I was using.

Style: In order to make the doily and lace ribbon work with my otherwise very modern page, I found the least fussy options I could in my stash.  I used everything on the list, including double-duty enamel "dots" that are star shaped.  I stenciled, edged and splattered with 4 shades of ink.

Stash: Bazzill cardstock, Kelly Purkey cards, SEI doily, Basic Grey Sunkissed die-cuts, We R Memory Keepers 3 x 4 card used for stencil, American Crafts ink, Teresa Collins enamel shapes, Websters Pages alphabets

Why not pop over to the Studio Challenges and see what everyone else concocted with that recipe.
