wedding scrapbook: scraplift
This page, is to some extent, a scraplift. I saw the page inspiration ages ago, printed it, added it to my journal of crafty ideas, (with no credit of course-I really need to work on recording that information in my personal stash) and I thought that I would give it a try on one of my wedding pages.
The inspiration page used yellow splattered paint on the left side of the page with the photo and stickers on the left with it. (The original had hearts). My photo woudl have been cut off if I'd chosen to mimic the page exactly, so I flipped the page. I also flipped the title/journal locations based on open space and the title I wanted.
I find myself using a lot of gold in my wedding album. I don't know if this is going to be a trend in my scrapbooking in general (which would be strange since I never wear or use gold anywhere else in my life). But I find myself constantly drawn to the gold. Maybe I'll gold myself out by the end of the project, who knows!
The flowers are embossed in silver (which ended up getting lost when heat embossed) and then coloured with a white gel pen to make them pop more.
I love that one of the elements that appeal to me most, the cut out letters in the title, is actually a fix that I made based on a stamping error (brought to you by the letter b in the word anb). I couldn't just add a square in the one word and leave the rest cause that would draw attention to the mistake, so all the words got a revamp.
