Hi crafty friends! Thanks for joining me here today and I share my wedding scrapbook layout for the challenge over at Southern Girls Challenge. Team Lou’s challenge this time was to use some sort of circle embellishments.
I am working with three photos from my sister’s wedding and a VERY old 2015 My Creative Scrapbook Kit. The kit featured items from Doodlebug’s Sweet Things Collection*, and I created two other layouts already with this kit….We Belong Together and Love. All of these layouts are in the same album so I wanted this one to have a different feel, and decided to try some mixed media.
The paper was primed first with Liquitex Gesso* before adding Heidi Swapp Pink Color Shine* using the packaging technique. Mixed media isn’t something that I normally do, but it was surprisingly easy. I am also pleasantly surprised with the way it turned out.
After the mixed media dried I used a sketch from Paper Issues to help me get started on my paper layers. I tried to use papers that added interest, but made the photos pop. Many of the papers were far to busy or had cutesy animals on them so more neutral patterns were better.
What is also unique about this wedding layout is there are three photos. To create make shift flip flaps I used Simple Stories 6×8 pocket protectors cut in half. When you lift the first photo to the left it reveals another. Then you lift that to the right and voila…one more. The flip flaps I ordered came the day after this layout was finished. Of course!
To meet the Southern Girls embellishment challenge I used two wooden buttons with hearts in the upper right and lower left. I also wanted to enter the Lasting Memories challenge to use the word happy hence the sticker in the lower left. Some matching hearts and additional splatters and I called it done.
I appreciate you reading my rambling and checking out what I create. You can watch this layout being created on my youtube channel. Until next time!
