Hi! Today I have a layout to inspire you with. This page was made as a present for my sister and her husband, the photo is of their wedding day in 2011. They look so beautiful, so of course I had to make something special for them.
I have used papers from GCD Studios and Donna's Natural Beauty collection: Twiggy B, Flying Free A and Teal Burlap B and layered them in this order. For the background I needed something romantic and used Want2Scraps and Donna's new 8x10 stencil - bricks - and made a pattern here and there across the page. I just love these larger stencils - perfect for layouts! I then used Mix'd Media Inx, Pewter and Chiffon, and and rubbed it onto the bricks and then let the ink fade out.
Here's a close-up of the bricks. I used texture paste to really get that "brick feeling".
The title "forever" is GCD Studios and Donna's chipboard alpha, from the Fun and Funky collection.
I cut a couple of birds from the Natural Beauty 12x12 pad image sheet.
The white (and one green), fabric flowers with pearls I made using Spellbinders Rose Creation dies. I have a little tutorial further down on how I made these.
Here's another look at the Rose Creation flower:
And here you see the green one, and another white:
Here is how I made the flowers, I call them "Stapled Flowers":
I have used: Spellbinders Rose Creation dies, small pieces of fabric and lace I had at home (the fabric is leftovers from our bedroom curtains and the lace with roses is from a table cloth I bought at the local dollar store), a stapler and some white pearls.
For the flowers on my layout I used the second largest die and cut flowers from the fabric and lace. They didn't cut all the way through, so had to cut here and there with my scissors.
I then layered two flowers (one fabric and one lace) and folded it. I then stapled the flower in the middle, close to the edge.
Here's what the flower looks like folded out and decorated with pearls:
I needed a green flower for my layout and misted one of the flowers with Smooch Spritz, color Green Olive, and then adhered the pearls.
Thank you for stopping by today!
