Sweet Pink Gelato

June 17, 2011

I really adore the “Pink Gelato” collection because of its unusually soft colours and I was immediately drawn to the umbrellas that feature throughout.

I recently saw a gorgeous layout created by the talented Kim Watson.  She had added stitching and brads to her page to emulate rain drops.  I thought however, instead of using brads, why not try the stunning variety of Kaisercraft rhinestones and pearls on a layout.

“Rain Dance” by Leanne Allinson: Pink Gelato collection – pineapple (p685), blueberry (p682), honey dew (p684); 6.5″ paper pad (pp845); clear stamp (cs779); sticker sheet (ss104); rhinestones – split pea (rs407), island lagoon (rs402); pearls – rose (sb786), chino (sb789), pearl (sb713); ink – sepia (ip709), rose (ip712); sticker alphas – cream (as222).  Other – foam tape, machine stitching, white pen, black pen, butterfly punch, flower punch, border punch.

I think it is quite effective with the shimmering rhinestones and glossy pearls.  No doubt I will be tempted to use this technique again and again! :)
