Perfection

This LO was a fun and easy one to do. This is the first time I've used KI lace cardstock. I decided to use my parents' wedding photo of the exchange of rings on a clear acrylic sheet. What is striking is that this is also similar to one of my wedding photos which I scrapped early this year for the Scrapbukan GDT.

Using StazOn, I stamped the background script all over the acrylic sheet using Stampin' Up's En Francais stamp. Then I cut out KI lace cardstock and arranged it around the photo, inked it with my favorite Tsukineko Walnut Ink to age the lace, and embellished it with black buttons. The title is from the mm De-fined Wedding stickers.

The hidden journal is revealed when the flowers mounted on DCWV black cs and decorated with Barbara Trombley's Vintage Glass Glitter are pulled down. The journal is handwritten on vellum paper mounted on a scrap kraft paper with the same En Francais stamp all over and again mounted on the black cs. It says: Marriage is not the absence of imperfection. Rather, it is perfected when a true match is made. Such a match, when worked at in a lifetime, can only be considered perfect. My parents are proof of this.

Materials: 12x12 acrylic sheet, KI Pop Culture Flower Child White, DCWV black cs, vellum, kraft paper scrap, mm De-fined Wedding Sticker, StazOn Timber Brown, Barbara Trombley's Vintage Glass Glitter 610 Onyx Fine, mm 5th Avenue Blossoms & Buttons (buttons only), Tsukineko Walnut Ink, Carolina's cord and ribbon, Pigma Micron 03 pen.
Techniques used: handwritten journal, stamping on acrylic sheet, inking sides of LO with StazOn ink, inking sides of lace cardstock with walnut ink to age it.
