Guest Designing for Pretty Little Studio

I am so excited to share my first guest designer project for Pretty Little Studio using the fabulous Sunny Memories collection by Zinia.

I don’t know about you but I can go a little stash blind when I have a bunch of new supplies.  I tend to adore 99% of what is in front of me and want to use it all at once whilst at the same time wanting to hoard it all so it lasts forever!  As my style is quite clean and simple I need to be selective.  In this case, I was drawn to all the smiley faces, in particular, the acetate.  One of my favourite things about Pretty Little Studios is the range of vellums and acetates.  Sunny Memories includes a pack of 4x6 acetate overlays and if I had to pick, arm twisted and stash at risk, I would choose this as my most wanted item from the collection.

With the 4x6 card chosen as my main piece, I gathered a few bits from the collection in matching colours.  Sequins are my thing so I grab a couple of spoonfuls in coordinating colours and pulled out two sewing threads to match.  I layered some paper and the sequins underneath the acetate.

I added sewing in the two colours and pulled my thread ends through to the front.  I tied them in to little bows.  I love the extra detail this adds along with the long thread tails.

I used two of the triangles from the cut apart sheet to make a string of bunting.  They were too big as they were but they cut down nicely into 4 pennants.

Thanks for looking at my first project for Pretty Little Studio.
I’ll be back with more soon!
