I have to admit to being a bit partial to this page! The photo is of my Mom and Dad on their wedding day. Here I have used All Yours as the background paper, distressed and then added to some brown cardstock. For drama, I used a Dusty Attic frame from my stash that is painted with walnut stain, then Coffee Glimmer Mist and lastly Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. See that cute little cherub? That was the very first thing I did with my kit! I knew if I didn't fussy cut him and the flowers, that I would use that page as is and loose the effectiveness of the cherub as an embellishment. He is from the Love Letters paper. Then I just started layering some papers (Devoted) along with a Crafty Secrets tag from the kit (love those things) and a crochet doily. I've worked in a Prima vine and some ribbon from my stash as well as buttons from the kit .... along with a button from my Mom's old button box! I've tucked in more DA (french flourish) and adorned it with a Bo Bunny trinket from what I had on hand. The butterfly was fussy cut from some older BoBunny Gabrielle papers.
This one was fun to do!! I did some wet and some dry distressing to my b/g paper You & Me and added some peach cardstock from the Jan KOM as a foundation. Then I misted my page with Sunkissed Peach GM and when that dried added my fence using a Prima mask. Next I added my center panel using Sincerely pp along with some off-white c/s that was punched with my Cherish Heart punch. The upper right corner was wet distressed, folded back and then I tucked in a white doily. For interest I added in another butterfly. For flowers, I used a mix of the ones I fussy cut earlier from the Love Letters pp with some that Alda sent in the kti and one older Prima Madrigal bloom. In honor of my team mate Frank, I hand snipped a few banner and added those into the floral clusters. That lower right corner has another of the awesome KC wooden flourishes. And did you see the Thickers? Woohoo! Instant title!!
Okay, one last layout before I show you my OTP. This was done using the Mojo Monday sketch from Jan 30th which I designed. So, that was kind of fun! This is my dd Danielle's wedding invitation which has Bacon's Wedding Morning painting on the front. I've used the 7 Gypsies paper here, Canal and Campo from the Venice collection but used some Sweet Nothings (With Love) as my b/g. I fussy cut the dove and more of the florals and added these in .. along with another tag from Crafty Secrets. There is a hint of green in the With Love paper, so I used more Dusty Attic as an accent that has been painted with Dirty Martini Glimmer Glam. Oh, almost forgot the rub-ons .. these were perfect for this page!
Sorry for the long post but I wanted to share the process with you! This was a gorgeous kit and I sure hope that you snagged one before they sold out! Glad I got mine!!! I still have tons left and hope to bring you some more projects mid-month. Talk soon!
