Beautiful - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Today I have a special layout for you....the first of my Beautiful Daughter's Wedding layouts. The inspiration photo for the Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team reveal is just perfect for the first layout!

Here is the Lasing Memories inspiration photo which continues with the August theme of colours.

And here are some closeups of my layout....

I painted up the "Beautiful" title from Creative Embellishments with light pink acrylic paint and highlighted with metallic water colours.

I also painted up the Recollections paper icon heart the same way. I stamped the background with my favourite script stamp using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Photo. I also added some TH texture medium with my favourite script stencil and blotted on some TH Distress Ink in Vintage Linen when dry.

I painted up the Blue Fern Studios Bits of Honey with a two shades of Metallic water colours. Then I layered over my stamping with a flower cluster made from Recollection burlap flowers and Pink Paislee - Bella Rouge flower over Recollection lace stickers.

I also wanted to share with you how I popped up my photo and papers. I always save my chipboard punch out pieces which I used to attach to the back of the photo and papers to add some dimension.

Product List: Teresa Collins paper, Dove Craft - Floral Muse 6x6 paper pack.

I used the  August Week 3 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy for my layout....
