Hello everyone! It’s Asia here and today I have a very happy project to share. I was so happy making it that I decided to make a tutorial for you as well :). I’m sharing a layout I made to commemorate a wonderful wedding day I had a privilege to participate in – the wedding happened to be on my birthday, so that’s double happy in my book!
The wedding took place in a beautiful setting of Château de Javarzay in Chef-Boutonne in France. The region is famous for its picturesque sunflower fields so there was no surprise these gorgeous blooms were chosen as the flowers of the wedding. And no surprise that they sneaked into my design, too :). So let’s begin!
1. Distress 2 sheets of coordinating 12″ x 12″ papers as shown. Layer the papers and secure with MyStik® Permanent Strips.
2. Dilute on a craft mat small pools of white and yellow acrylic paint and flick over the page with a paint brush to create splatters.
Mat the photo with some left-over paper using MyStik® Permanent Strips and distress the edges. Trim a page from the 6″ x 6″ paper pad into tree parts. Layer the pieces and secure them with MyStik® Permanent Strips. Add some thicker card to the back to make the collage more sturdy.
4. Print a couple of small photos and trim to fit within the small wooden frames. Cover the back of the frames with Adhesive Sheets – 4×6” and place over the photos.
7. Create a handful of flowers to embellish your page.
For white daisies – cover small dots from 3D Foam Christmas Shapes with yellow flock and add to the centres of white paper flowers. Snip and ruffle the petals to resemble small daisy flowers.
For white chrysanthemums – cover DODZ™ – 3D with green glitter and add to the centres of white paper flowers. Ruffle the petals.
For sunflowers – punch several daisy blooms from yellow cardstock and shape the petals. Layer and secure with DODZ™ – Medium. Paint a circle in the centre of each flower with chocolate paint and allow to dry. Add DODZ™ – 3D in each centre, cover with Flowersoft and shake off the excess. Gently work the paint into the textured centres. Use only a small amount of paint as you want to add colour without loosing the fluffy texture.
Embellish the page further with stickers, rub-ons, gems, ribbons and a ‘just married’ banner made from letter beads and craft wire.
