Last of the Wedding Book

I know you're probably sick of the wedding pages, but I am kind of proud of them, so bear with me a little more. This is the last of the ones I took pictures of.

The pages for the guests to sign (on the left here) were done with Adobe Photoshop Elements and some free digital brushes. I found a great site for free brushes – you'll have to check it out. I've downloaded so many of them that I'm afraid I'm going to run out of room on my puter J.

This page again is painted with the acrylics and gesso first. You can see form this photo a little shimmer to it to, I forgot to add that I put in a little shimmery pearl acrylic paint too. I stamped the leaves from Wonderful You (stampin' Up!) using River Rock and Cool Caribbean ink (both retired from Stampin' Up!).

This page uses the following stamps:

Stampin' Up! Stamps: Print Pattern, En Francais.

Autumn Leaves: Flourishes

I stamped the print pattern stamp using ColorBox chalk inks in light blue and black, but the black turned out looking a little more brown, I think that is because it is old. Stampin' Up! used to carry the color box chalk ink palettes and this is what that is from. Even though the black looks brown, I like how it turned out. The edges of the pictures are sponged with craft white ink.

This page is simply stamped with the Autumn Leaves flourishes again using the black (brown) color box ink, palette jet black, river rock and soft sky inks.

This is another of my favorites. Stamped the Baroque Motifs (SU) with Basic Gray and the flowers from Wonderful You (SU) using the color box chalk ink in light blue. You can see the shimmer from the acrylic paint in this picture too.

THis is the last page in the book. I used the spellbinders long scalloped rectangle and the long rectangles to make the frame. The flowers are from the pretties kit (SU) and the center of the flowers are dollar store bling. The sentiment reads : "For hearing my thoughts, understanding my dreams and being my best friend, for filling my life with joy and loving me without end. I do".

Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow – the wedding card!

LOL - I wish this was my hubby cause he's so cute and she's so skinny and pretty, and they are a gorgeous couple! Poor me - I'm old, fat and happily married to my hubby of 12 years! However this is my cousin and his new wife. These are pics from the wedding guest book they asked me to make for them. I really appreciate you stopping by. It was really fun to make.
FYI, I visit you daily and am so thankful for all your wonderful inspiration!
Happy Hugs and Smiles,
