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.
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.
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.
