I made all the flowers from scratch using a technique plus incorporating a bit of my own that I learned from Penny Duncan. She has the most beautiful paper flowers on her site and a ton of free SVG files. Go check them out sometime. To start, I spritzed a paper doily with a pinkish glimmer mist that I made myself. It was a bit drastic, so I added a yellowish glimmer mist over the top and heat set it with my heat gun, (cuz I am impatient like that). I added a tan piece of card stock to the center of the doily where the center of the plate would be and layered a piece of vellum with some wording on it atop of that piece. I used spray Tack to adhere all the paper piecings onto the plate to make sure I get a real good seal. I did offset it a bit to give it some dimension. I then used my ATG gun and adhered the wedding photo on top of the paper.
A little bit of tulle, scrunched and tied in bows behind the paper flowers I made with some leaves from previous silk flower stems added a nice touch. I also used some pearls I got from Michaels in the dollar bin and a small pearl flourish atop the photo and paper.
|Sorry about the quality of the pictures.
My camera ran out of batteries at the
most inopportune time, so I
had to use my cell phone.
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think about my Plate layout. Then go and create something vintage style and go over to Getting Cricky and link it up. I am sure Kristal will also have another fabulous giveaway. She usually does!!! and it's usually pretty awesome. She is a very kind sole and so good hearted. Please tell her that...
Thanks for all the comments left over the last four days for the Getting Cricky Stamp release. I really cannot wait to get those stamps so that I can start making projects with them. I am so excited to be able to give a set away and the winner gets to choose which set she would like...so are you ready to see who won? I placed ALL the comments in a hat and my DH drew:
