Hey, friends! Missy here, and we are focusing on fringe today. The fringe I created sort of turned into pleats, but I love the finished look of it! I used the 2018 June Hip Kits for this. My 2018 July Kits turned up on my doorstep as I was finishing this one. I used patterned paper to create my fringe pieces. I covered them with gesso and then various Shimmerz sprays from previous Color Kits as well as the Shimmerz Frostbite from this month’s Color Kit. I cut the paper into strips and then folded it accordian style. I machine stitched through them, and they make the greatest embellishments! They create awesome texture as well.
I incorporated lots of embellishments on the layout including some Pinkfresh Studio chipboard and lots of floral die cuts from Pretty Little Studio. I added lots of adhesive foam behind my photos to raise them up since they overlapped the fringe pieces.
I used a Pinkfresh Studio paper as my background. I coated a good portion of it with white gesso and then used some pink, yellow and blue Shimmerz sprays from past Color Kits to create the watercolor look. I also added in some coordinating colors of tangled thread.
For a pop of orange, I used this cute Pinkfresh Studio epoxy circle sticker.
I’ve been wanting to use these gorgeous Pretty Little Studio floral die cuts since I opened the kits, and this was the perfect page for them!
I really love the look of this pleated fringe…or my version of it…haha! Once they were stitched together, I could move them around easily until I found the right spot for them.
I cut this big lemon from patterned paper to mimic a sun since this is a Summer layout, I love how it looks peeking out from behind the photo.
I hope this inspires you to create your own “fringe.” You can get a different look if you have fringe scissors, but I wanted to take a different spin on it. Give it a try! Check out my process video if you’d like to see how I made this:
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful Sunday 🙂
