Good morning crafting friends and family. I am excited to be back today after quite a big weekend celebrating Lane's 13th birthday. We had another 8 teenage boys here on Saturday for a big day of Mower Racing (only watching.. lol) , then back home for Pizza and plenty of Ice Cream!! lol..
Anyway, enough of that as I'm here to bring to you this lovely wedding layout featuring some different techniques used on the Memory Maze chipboard pieces and a stunning photo of my cousin Aleesha and her awesome hubby Andrew..
Using Kaiser papers & flowers, Prima Bling swirl and 3 gorgeous MM chipboard pieces this layout has a very subtle soft vibe to highlight the photo against the busy background paper.
Every now and again I think it is important to go back to basics with scrapbooking layouts and do a fairly simple design. I believe it can help to reload our creative imagination and give a nice boost to a lacking mojo.
The beautiful wrought iron gate was quite simple to colour with some black paint.
The title piece "joy" was fun with a few different layers. First was two coats of White Embossing powder. I then realised it still wasn't as white as I wanted it, so I sprayed some Mister Huey's White Mist on it. This definitely helped to get a more solid coverage. I should have inked or painted it first as I wanted it to be stark white. Silly me! It was finished off with a top coat of Dimensional magic.
The pretty bicycle piece was first covered with an Opera Pink ink by Versa Color, then sprayed with the Festival pink Glimmermist and top coated with the Dimensional magic. It definitely shines and sparkles!
I cut the Say It With Pearls Prima bling piece in half and laid on top of the chipboard either side of the photo. The flowers were the final embellishment.. The single one to the left has been sprayed a little with the Glimmermist also.
