Wedding Work

Here is a wedding invitation I made that matches with the mini paint can/center pieces I shared back in September. This was the first time I ever used digital scrapping brushes in photoshop, it was fun.
And here is some wedding layouts for my wonderful client, she was such a beautiful bride! And just look at her adorable bridesmaids!

In this layout I finally tried a couple new techniques... on the left I put acrylic paint in the grooves of my Making Memories letter charms to make the L-O-V-E stand-out... in the middle-corner I let my sewing machine poke holes, then I sewing with embroidery thread by hand to give me nice straight lines... and on the left I stamped with my Close to My Heart Playful Flourishes with versamark ink covered in grey chalk to give it the soft tone-on-tone look.

I also used Heidi Swapp fuzzy rub-ons for the first time, it was a little harder to get them to transfer compared to traditional rub-ons, but the raised detail was totally worth the trouble.

Be sure to let me know what you think of my work, I could use a good critique, especially since all this work is for my clients... thank you ladies.... have a get day!

Your work is beautiful!

Thanks for coming by to see me! I let Anna run around naked a lot during the day and it seems to help her remember to go potty.

Your work is STUNNING! And I love all the organising of your scrapping stuff.

Those are beautiful! I’m going to have to visit your blog more often for some inspiration. Of course, my pages will never look like that, but that’s okay. I do what I can.

Beautiful! I’ve never inked on photos (that I can remember) but it looks great. I think you have just the right touch of embellishments and as always your layouts never look cluttered. Now if only you lived closer, some of your talent may rub off on me.
