Hi everyone! The girls over at Scrap around the world have the new mood board and sketch for the month of July. It is a very beautiful piece and since my dad moved, some things have started showing up, like this old photograph of my wedding.
If you look closely at the mood board it begs for something romantic like a wedding, a formal event, something magical at the very least. So here's my interpretation of the challenge
If you start looking up close you will find pieces of my dress lace that my mother saved since she was my seamstress. I was inspired by the fabrics in the board and I knew I had saved a few of those fabric and laces, enough to follow up close the sketch provided by the team!
I tried working with several alphas until I stumbled upon this old ones by Fancy Pants, they had the perfect " Fancy I" for my vows...I also loved the monochromatic feel of the board.
I used some new Prima Hexagons and new Prima paper by Fairy Rhymes
I also used a TCR hexagon mask with gesso on my background
you can see the sparkles of the sequins and the pearls
Inspired by the heart, young ol' me!!!
a close up of my embroidered fabric from the wedding dress, a peek at my tiara, it wasdesigned with filigree pieces by my mom and soldered by my brother. There were so many special details made with love by them for me!!!
the heart is a vintage brooch given to me by my mama, it is used as a brooch in the event my daughter ever wants to use it. Can you spot the vintage Prima bloom, circa 2009, LOL along a 2013 one, always so good together!!!
I used an old piece of stained lace as my photo's frame
a heavy piece indeed
Thanks for walking along memory lane with me, here's the glorious inspiration:
