Making Memories

Today I am sharing a project that I made with the papers that Bev from Bee Crafty launched on Hochanda on October 17th. The shows will still be available on their website Via  the 'Rewind' facility. The papers are wonderful, I thought the piece I am making today would be super for the wedding scrapbook page I have made, but there are so many other ways you could use it.

This is the sheet I decided to use for the project, it's such a beautiful design.

I was also using the feather stamps from the show as well, I stamped some of them around, mostly second generation. To position the ones in the centre I took the photograph I was using and I would use a craft knife later so I could use them as photo corners. 

Around the edges, Particularly the left hand side I used part of the ledger stamp to deepen the colour and add some extra depth.

Next I took a selection of alcohol markers and added some colour to the lady and the flowers.

Then taking the photo, I added some feathers to tie the whole thing together.

I used Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet Distress ink to blend the edges. Then using my craft knife I cut a little way along the feathers, just enough for the corners of the photo to slip underneath and added the photo.

Next I added the sentiment I had chosen with Archival black ink.

To create the background, I stamped the feathers around the page and blended with Victorian Velvet and tattered Rose Distress Inks.

I backed my page with mat black card, I ran around the edge of this with a gold Krylon Pen to add the gold detail.

To finish, I layered it onto my background using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

Thank you for looking today, I hope you have enjoyed what I shared and that you will pop by again soon. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
