hi Bev here today ... so I am still creating wedding pages... doing black and white and colour photos. I am using products from The Rubber Buggy. The Blue Fern Studio Collections have been amazing and have the perfect touch of softness and elegance for wedding pages.
The Rubber Buggy Products
Paper: Blue Fern Studio Tranquility Stillness
Stencils: TCW 455s, 605s, 507s
Ink: Tim Hotlz mini pads
Accent: ART C doily
Other: flowers, fern stickers, chipboard
In the close ups I'll share some of my techniques. I use both Color Box and Tim Holtz inks... shading to the outer edges of where the photo will be.
Now using some shades of green I add more defined straight lines through out the yellow.
Now I used green paint splatter applied by flicking the paint brush.
Now it's stencil time. I am using a few of them and mix up the yellow and green to them.
Here is my finished stenciling all placed to the outer edges of the photo spot.
At this point I play all the proposed accents on the page in estimated placement. I take a photo so when I take them all off to start gluing from the back going forward I have a photo to view.
In these close ups you can see the page come together. In the one above you can see I chose to move everything up higher from my sample photo to leave the 3 hearts showing in full size.
I loved the natural chipboard colouring with the paper and inking.
The stenciling and colouring is perfect for this page. I love the hearts and the word Love... just perfect.
I decided on single flowers but originally had tried larger clusters. They became too strong and went back to one each. The fern leaves are stickers and the other accent is the doily.
At this point less is better so I chose to stop at this point.
Thanks for stopping by.. see you again soon.
