True Romance

Another week has flown by and it is hard to believe that it is 28 June already.  I hope you have had good week.  Thank you for visiting my blog today.

I have enjoyed a creative June and managed to participate in 7 challenges which would have to be a record for me.  Sadly during the week it was announced that NZPaper Chase is to cease publication.  It has been published since 2004 first as Up2Scrap and then more recently as NZPaperChase.  I was lucky enough to be part of the 2010 Elite Team for the Up2Scrap magazine.  However it is hoped that the NZPaperChase Facebook Group may continue which is a good network for NZ paper crafters and friends.

Today I am sharing another layout created with the lovely Kaisercraft "True Romance" collection which was perfect for a wedding layout. All these papers and collection pieces are currently  available at Embellish It. 

 I couldn't resist putting a lock and key on the page since that is one of the wedding gifts that they received to put on Timaru's Matrimonial Bridge - See previous "Love Lock" post.

 The large flower was one I had in my stash - a dismantled fabric flower from the 'Warehouse' and put together again with a brad.
 the 'happiness' title was already on the paper but I used the sticker sheet to pop them up with foam squares to add dimension.  I used the new Kasier 12 x 12 Damask Template to add texture to the page.  Gel Medium was applied and once dry some iridescent medium to add more dimension.  The butterflies were also cut from the sticker sheet strip.

Well I have plenty to keep me occupied for the weekend - a wedding card, birthday card,  some kit instructions for some upcoming classes and I also have a Nic Howard kit that I am eager to get on to so perhaps I had better go and get motivated.

I hope you also manage some creative time. Have a lovely weekend.

Until next time......
