Today I am sharing a few pages of the wedding book. You can see more detail of the brush marks and how I painted the pages as I explained in my last post. I stamped the Brocade Basics stamp using Basic Gray in the corners. The frills above and below the quote is a cuttlebug die and the flower is from the Stampin' Up! pretties kit. I dyed the flower using the soft sky ink pad.
You can see a little bit of the pen I made to go with the book above. I took a fine tipped Sharpie marker and wrapped it with sticky strip and rolled it in some silver microbeads (also from Stampin' Up!).
The quote I thought was wonderful and honestly can't remember where I found it. It says "They gave each other a smile with a future in it". Isn't that great for a wedding quote?
This page was a complete oops. The picture was originally printed using some digital scrapbooking elements. The background of the page had a little design to it, but it's basic color was a black background. Since I had decided to paint all the pages, this one looked a little odd not being painted. So, I took a chance…
I mixed some shimmery silver acrylic paint with some gesso and thinned it with water. I painted it over the page and prayed that it wouldn't ruin the picture by smearing. It didn't ruin the picture, but it did take away from the swirls from the original digital background . I really didn't mind though, because I like the outcome of this even better. The page has a little shimmer to it from the silver acrylic and then I took the pretty flourish from Baroque Motifs and stamped it onto the page using black Palette Hybrid ink. I edged the page with some white craft ink. This is one of my favorite pages.
