I only just realised that this month's challenge at Scrap Around The World closes in 17 hours! I've just scraped this layout in!
You can find this month's challenge here. Here are July's mood board and sketch:
I went to a wedding a couple of months ago and this mood board just yelled "wedding" to me. The pictures on the mood board are gorgeous. I started with the sketch but got this great idea about sitting the photo on a bouquet of flowers so this changed the design significantly. I realised at some stage that I was so far from the sketch that there was no point trying to make it look like it so I just went with the flow.
Here's what I came up with:
I'm not sure I've done the layout justice with this photo. It's a 12 x 12 layout with edges punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. I loved playing around with the gorgeous Manor House Creations flowers to make the bouquet. I think the all-white theme is so elegant. I added lace around the photo and in the bouquet to highlight the gorgeous lace wedding dress. I added my jounaling in silver pen unobtrusively around the photo as I wanted to keep the design simple and uncluttered.
Here are some close ups:
Thanks for looking!
