Ocean Journey | Pretty Little Studio

Hi everyone! On Pretty Little Studio's blog we're featuring arrows and because I just love the colorful arrows from the Treasure Island collection I went with that collection. The photos I used are from our vacation in California – one of our most favorite vacations – and although it’s been almost six years ago I still love to scrap those photos. We went sailing in San Diego and thus perfect for the Treasure Island collection.

For this layout I didn’t use a whole lot of patterned papers, but way more embellishments. I started with the two horizontal strips of paper and placed my photos on top. Next I just started adding little cards, die-cuts, stickers etc until I thought I had enough (I always have to take care not to add too much and make a mess of it, lol). With the arrows I tried to emphasize the pointing arms in the little photo.

Although there wasn’t a cloud in the sky that day, I thought it was still fun to add these fun colorful die-cut clouds. And of course I just had to add a flair button somewhere too. I’m a huge fan of flairs buttons!

I also needed a bit of gold, like these vellum stickers. They are hard to take a photo of, but I think I succeeded. The anchor in the photo above is also gold, but that’s much harder to see.
