The Scrapbook Store - Graphic 45 - Mon Amour

Hi Everyone,

This month I received the gorgeous new Graphic 45 "Mon Amour" Collection in my parcel of goodies from The Scrapbook Store.  The collection has a love theme in a red, pink, black and cream colour palette and is perfect for creating with wedding photos in mind.

Mon Amour
  I decided to use this collection to scrap this photo of my nephew's wedding day to his beautiful bride last year. 

I really enjoy fussy cutting and layering and I have to say Graphic 45 papers are just the thing if you like this technique.  For my LO I fussy cut some of the flowers from the G45 Mon Amour and Dearest Darling and layered them with Green Tara Cherry Blossoms and Petaloo Mini Daisies to frame my photo.

To flow on from the larger flower cluster on the right, I masked flowers with Faber Castell Whipped Spackle using the Tim Holtz Wildflower stencil on the bottom right of the My Beloved pp, then lightly brushed around the masked area with Prima Peony Color Bloom Spray.

To make the photo shine I placed it centrally on my LO and framed it with the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios - Chipboard - Blue Fern Frame  which I have altered by sponging with Faber Castell Gesso then stamping randomly with Kaisercraft Script Stamp in Rose Madder Archival Ink.
