It's been a while since my last wedding LO so here is another one. I'm really happy with the quality of the photos and we received around 800 of them so you'll be seeing many more LO's to come. This one focuses on our Grandparents. Unfortunately, Ben lost two grandparents during our engagement and he is fairly estranged from his other grandfather so this page is pretty special to me. I've also got some lovely photos of his grandmother with the extended family which I hope to scrap later.
I'm really enjoying making my own flowers at the moment using the water spritz technique. These have a lovely golden glimmer to them. The butterfly chipboard is half of a Scrapmatts piece, I wanted it to match the butterfly in the Kaisercraft paper.
This LO was inspired by two challenges again. The first is Workout #65 for ScrapFIT: Good Ole Boys. We were given the below inspiration picture. The formal outfit made me think of our wedding immediately. I was originally going to go the groomsmen but I didn't have the photos I wanted pre-printed. Instead, I figured the more vintage theme would suit focusing on our grandparents.
I also decided to try out a new challenge blog, Sketches With a Twist. I thought it was a wonderfully composed sketch with lots of room for interpretation. The twist was to use mesh on your project, it could be Magic Mesh from a fruitbag or any kind of mesh you can find in your household. I tried mesh from my passionfruits but it was red and didn't react well when I tried to paint over it so I went with tulle instead which is similar to mesh.
The tulle is very hard to see, even after I coloured it green with ink, but here are a few cdetail shots which hopefully show it a bit better. I've used it as a second matt around the photos.
