From This Day Forward Creative Embellishments

Welcome to the season of weddings and beached themed layout, and it is so fitting I am currently on a ship cruising the Caribbean. I was asked by a good friend to put something together for a shadow box for an upcoming wedding near the end of April. I was more that honoured to be asked and jumped at the chance. She sent me some photos via text message. They were good but I did alter them slightly with my photo editing program. I am also going to do mini album with the other photos so look for that near the end of the month. These photos were perfect for the ideas I had.

I decide to incorporate the April Challenge with the page, I used the photo inspiration and the twist was to add wood to the project.


I have a little video of the creative process.

I started with some background stamping with various colours and stamps including the Distress Grid, Fishnet and Distressed Crackle Stamp. After seem added texture with the fishnet stencil I started to put the composition together.

I mixed in the Nautical Corner along with the large sea shells in a collection of flowers, real shells and pearls, and i finished it out with the From This Day Forward Title.
