Off the Rails July Challenge
At Off the Rails Scrapbooking for July there are 2 moodboards to choose from. This is the one I chose:
It's very pretty and shabby chic, which I haven't done for a little while.
I chose this photo of niece Erin and her new husband Steen, from their very recent wedding. It was a terribly cold and wet day here in Melbourne, but somehow Erin braved the cold in her pretty dress.
From the moodboard I was inspired by the frame, the metal of the bottle carrier and the flowers.
For my layout, I used this really old Basic Grey paper that had a sepia edge to it. I inked over this to make it more of the grey tones. I then stencilled over the background paper with texture paste, and added a bit of misting. I had this Stampin up stamp with the word happiness, which I stamped around the page.
I die cut the silver paper with a sizzix die, sitting under the photo and matting and then I die cut some paper with this lovely Couture Creations die which is matting my photo. Over the photo I have added a framed transparency. I embellished using these lovely Prima flowers, a heavenly heart from Charms Creations to which I sewed on a metal charm, added the sequins, trinket pin and glass brads. The title is a transparency as well.
I love the overall effect of this layout, I hope the new couple do too.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
