Hello, everybody! I'm back again today with a new DT submission for Stuck on U Sketches. This time we have another great sketch by Liz Qualman which I will post below.
LOVE how my page turned out!! Either that or I'm so enchanted with this engagement photo of Jake and Olivia that it didn't matter LOL!! They've got some really great photos, so you'll be seeing quite a few more, I imagine.
Once again,, I'm using my Basic Grey Capella papers ... actually this page was done before yesterdays was. But I went all out on this one with sewing and distressing. Jake and Olivia are building their marriage on a firm foundation with faith in God ... and I felt that getting out that old sewing machine of mine and stitching my papers together was very fitting! (You may have to click on the photo to get a larger view to see it as my thread was off white and kind of blends in with the paper.) The distressssing is of course, my style, but also symbolizes some old-fashioned values. Got deep on this one, didn't I?
I cut 2 banners using April Showers cartridge but decided that one banner looked better, otherwise I stayed pretty true to the sketch. I added some trim and pearls to give it a finished look. My flowers were handmade again this time using the Mother's Day Bouquet cart. My title and shadow are from Tie the Knot.
Here's a close-up of 2 of the flowers. I did add a small Prima rose in ivory to the center of my flower and added some Petaloo leaves.
Just a close-up of the title but you can see some of the sewing in this photo.
I did alter the shape of my banner somewhat using my Gypsy and unlinking the heighth, width function then adding to the heighth only.
Then a yummy Prima say it in pearls swirl in brown .. and it's done!
If you haven't been by Stuck on U Sketches and see what our designers have done. We have a special guest today, the uber-talented Shona Keehn who will be joining our team! We are super excited to have her aboard! Hope you can play along this time!
Thanks for coming by and for always leaving such sweet comments. I have some catching up to do on making it to your blogs but I'm trying. A few more family functions this week and next ...and then things will level off a bit .. sort of! LOL Have a great weekend!
