Hello once again fellow scrappers! Happy belated Valentine's Day to you all. I hope many of you gave & received much TLC to all your loved ones yesterday & every day! Why just keep it to just one day right? Spread the love daily is what I say! :-) On that note--this page is a bit on the romantic side.
This would be me & my husband on our wedding day. I titled this layout 'Your Everything' which is the song that was playing when this photo was taken. My husband requested the DJ to play this song by Keith Urban & then proceeded to dance & sing it to me. It came as a bit of a surprise since I didn't know he was going to ask for this special request. This would be my husband at his best! :-)
This large sheer organza ribbon is actually two bows that I hot glued together in the form of a cross. So it looks fancier than what it really is.
Underneath it is a Prima vine that I tore apart & adhered strategically underneath it.
All papers & the stamped images are by My Mind's Eye (Follow Your Heart - Be Happy Collection). Here you can see the large floral stamped image and the honeycomb image that I randomly stamped in the bottom right hand corner.
Here's a closeup of the Chicken Wire mascil. I placed the mascil in the corners of my page & spritzed Graphite Glimmer Mist & just a hint of My Bleeding Heart Coloringz by Shimmerz over it. Next I removed my mask & LISTO! Instant decorative & shimmery background!
The large leaf flourish die is the Mega Fanciful Flourish by Cheery Lynn Designs. I further decorated the flourish die by adding dots of acrylic paint to the ends of the swirls.
You can also see in this close up that I randomly added dots of Diamond Stickles to my background. Adding dots of light colored shimmer adds a nice touch to your background.
Here's a closeup of the Hearts Acrylic Border. To give this border it's texture--I first highlighted the edges with a black Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pen--then I colored the border with Red Pepper & Silver alcohol inks. Finally I stamped the word 'love.' with black Staz On ink to the hearts. TIP: Always remember to use solvent inks & permanent markers with acrylic. Using any other kind of inks or markers will cause your work to smear.
The paper heart border was made with Martha Stewart's Lattice Heart deep edge punch. I accentuated the design with dots of pink acrylic paint.
These butterflies are a fairly new addition to my Etsy shop. They are called 'Angelus' & like all the butterflies in my shop come in sets of 3. Although they can be made in any size! If interested in these or any other kind of butterflies--feel free to visit my shop.
A big thanks to all of you who stopped by for a visit. An even bigger thanks for those of you who leave a comment. I always appreciate the gesture!
Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's--enjoy the rest of the weekend!
