Bridal Party

One more double LO completed for the Gold Coast Show. I only have the open themed LO to complete now but I have to hand them in this Sunday for judging so I really need to get organised. This one is for the wedding category and I figured I had done enough LOs which focused on Ben and I so this one is focused on the great bridal party we had supporting us on the day.

The photo editing after I took the picture has made my sister's dress appear blue however I assure you it was actually purple hence all the purple in the LO. We look a bit akward in some of the photos because my sister just hates photos and Ben's two brothers were not comfortable posing at all.

Dotty black flowers and the dotty button are by Lil' Red Rocket. Chipboard is by Scrapmatts. Tissue paper flowers by Pretty Paper Petals (still upset this place closed down, I loved their stuff!). Kaisercraft miniblooms and background paper.

 I used three different brands of mist on this page. I've used Tattered Angel Glimmer mist for quite a while now and have four different colours. It's a good quality mist, love the sparkle and quite versatile. I recently picked up the green Dylusions mist for something a bit cheaper than the Glimmermist. It is such a vibrant colour which I love but it also stains your hands and doesn't wash off too easily. Good to have something without glimmer sometimes too. My most recent purchase for a Mister Huey opaque white mist. Have to say, I'm pretty unimpressed with it. Tiny bottle and the one I got wasn't even filled to the top. I've only used it on two LO's and it's already half empty. Coverage is hard to judge as it seems to fade whilst drying but then the colour firms up again and it takes AGES to dry as well so I keep smudging it.

I tried something different this time and was inspired by a single page sketch to create this double LO. I couldn't go past a chance to use this great sketch from ScrapFriends. Hopefully you can see how I've used it in this LO.


  1. Yes! Yes! Yes! I absolutely agree re: Mr Huey's white... I was REALLY disappointed...it smudges almost for DAYS...soooo annoying! But I LOVE Dylusions for vivid & strong colour. I wonder if they do a white? Just thought of that!!! Woops - supposed to be commenting for Scrap Friends. FAB interpretation of the sketch...LOVE those hearts on the 'tree'....really great job:):):) And let me know if you find a 'decent' white:):):)
