I LOVE how this layout turned out! Using the sketch from Bo Bunny, and the Gabrielle collection, I designed this of my oldest son Jakob's wedding from a few years back. I am sad however, because my Gabrielle papers are almost gone...just scraps left...(a little sniffle here) I absolutely LOVE the shabby romantic feel of this line.
As you know, I love to make flowers and am always looking for new materials to make them out of. I made these using crinoline and tulle. Crinoline is what petticoats are made from. It's a light weight stiffer material and holds it's shape, making it easy to manipulate. I purchase the white so I can dye it the colors I need. I love the shabby look. (boy...there sure is alot of love in this post....LOL)
I used the Bigz Die Tattered Flowers and ran it right through my Cuttlebug, dyed them, gave them a spritz of copper mist, then squished them up and let them dry.
I fussy cut a couple of butterflies out of one of the papers in the collection. I then added some Diamond Dust and made some antennas from wire.
I used one of the note cards and added a piece of the matching border as a pull tab. Journaling is on the reverse side.
For the title, I cut the word "Love" out from the Sweethearts cartridge, then added a bit of Stickles.
I inked and distressed all the edges, then used different thickness pop dots and popped all the layers for add dimension. Distressing is this weeks challenge at Lasting Memories.
