our Journey begins

I was in the mood to create a simple, but elegant wedding layout, choosing one of my most favorite photographs - my beautiful daughter with her handsome husband escorting her down stone steps as they strolled around Venice after getting married. 
I love the look on their faces!   They both look so happy and so very proud.
For me, this photo always emulates the feel that Brianne & John are beginning their lifelong journey together.  

The chipboard title was prepped with gesso; painted with white acrylic paint; and the lower half inked in teal color. For some shabby chic interest, I distress punched around the page. 
Prima’s elegant Décor 2 stencil and crackle texture paste were perfect for the print in the paper. Of course, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers always add so much beauty to a layout!   And so does Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays! 
LSG Starburst Cape Cod Coral recolored a white Tuscany rose & rosebuds.  Touches of LSG Glitz Spritz Scintillating Silver with a paintbrush added a bit more sparkly-shimmer! 

The white roses and die cut leaves were sprayed with LSG SB Teeth Chattering Teal (retired color) to add a hint of teal shimmer. A few touches of the Scintillating Silver Glitz Spritz gave additional sparkle!
I always enjoy scrapping those awesome wedding photos of Brianne & John! 
Thanks for visiting and hope you have a great day!  Lisa : )
