Wedding Day – Twisted Sketch #78 with the FRAME twist


It is Wednesday again! 🙂 and this week marks the debut of Twisted Sketch #78 over at www.twistedsketches.com ! The twist for this week’s sketch was FRAME, any how or any way that inspires you to create.  To view the sketch click HERE.  I loved this sketch (but I love them all) and I loved the twist! Here is my interpretation!

Here is a photo taken of me by one of my friends on my wedding day on the way to the Myriad Gardens!  Loved that old “gansta” car that we hired!  I loved my dress too! and loved this photo because I felt it really captured the shine of the silk.

I did A LOT of “framing” on this…..from the large intricate frame that I cut out of the “Gothic” Creative Imaginations paper, the transparency frame used on/around the photo from Best Creations Inc., the special circle and border punch technique I did (see post on November 27, 2010 for details on how this was done), and the Pink Paislee “Artisan Elements” I used to frame in the photo.

Here are some more up-close detailed photos:

I “fussy-cut” (isn’t that a fab word 🙂 ) the flowers out of this beautiful paper that my mom gave me….I don’t know the manufacturer but I know she scored it at Michaels.  If I can find out who makes this gorgeous paper I will up-date this post. Up-date 🙂 Thank you AMY! the paper is Ciao Bella by DCWV.

I used these gorgeous Pink Paislee “Artisan Element” dimensional stickers to frame in the photo, cutting some of them in half.

I pop-dotted the large frame so that it would give the page some dimension.  And, like most layouts…I think it looks so much prettier in real life!

A complete list of supplies I used here include: Paper: Ciao Bella by DCWV, Creative Imagination’s “Gothic” by Marah Johnson, GCD’s Paris Nights, & pink paper (circle) from Anna Griffin; Martha Stewart’s “Deco” corner edge punch; Pink Paislee’s Artisan Elements; Best Creation Inc.’s transparency frames; tiny font Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink in Vintage Photo; & Kaiser Craft’s adhesive pearls.

    Wow! Nancy, that is amazing! I can tell that you spent a lot of time on this. You are so talented, I didn’t realize. How do you have time to do that with the kids? I’m so jealous. That photo is great too. You were and still are beautiful! I miss my scrapbookers! We need to get together.
