The challenge at More Than Words Challenge Blog for February is the inspiration word: WONDERFUL and the technique: SPARKLE.
I have collected a lot of gold items over the past few months in kits, and I don't usually use gold very much because I mostly scrap 'boy' pages, but this challenge really inspired me to get them out and start playing. Although I have to admit I have just discovered how difficult gold foil is to photograph!
I was also inspired by the challenge at Scrap The Girls this month - such a dramatic mood board! The black and gold combination is just DIVINE!
Here is my layout-
This is a photo of me getting ready for my wedding , 6 years ago now! I wanted to document that wonderful feeling of anticipation, and getting dressed up like a princess for one day. And what's more wonderful than a wedding!?
I have journalled on the back of my layout my feelings of excitement, but I wasn't all that nervous (only when I walked in to the ceremony with everyone turning to look at me!)
I just could not go past that My Mind’s Eye 'My Story – Take Aim' gold foil paper, and the Bella! paper with the gold and white stars on black.
My title is a wood veneer piece from the Maggie Holmes Shine collection. I kept it raw, as well as the Imaginarium Designs dragonfly chipboard pieces, as I love the texture, and it matches my book page background and Charm's Creations terrific tab.
I have added some Jen Hadfield 'Home-Made' ephemera for some extra gold bling, and those pink florals are just exquisite!
I finished off the page of with some Doodlebug enamel dots and some Crate Paper tiny word stickers.
