Cherish Love

Recently my nephew became engaged and married a wonderful girl he met in Vietnam, it has taken me a while but finally I got around to Scrapping a few photos. This one is of his engagement, I have converted the photo to black and white because the colours were so bright and gaudy that the were hard to use traditionally. The photo came up really nice in black and white though and suited a strong use of colour, I choose purple, not sure I am happy with the strength of the colour, but it is what it is lol
I have used Krylon spray gesso, my favourite thing at the moment, to create the background and subdue the purple cardstock, I have made flowers with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms and Carnation Creations, along with Foliage 2 ( for a full list of materials go to http://downunderdirectinspiration.blogspot.com.au/

  1. Sue just love the colour and the hands insert perfect, a beautiful layout.

  2. gorgeous colour combination, love the bow and the fingers photo, those flowers are stunning too :)

  3. Yummy colours Sue ... and a beautiful wedding photo... did you make that purple background yourself? If so, How??

  4. Opps... ignore that question on my last comment ... I re-read the second paragraph and it finally registered...that will teach me to skim!!! LOL ... VERY cool technique by the way. And I wouldn't worry about the intensity of the purple ... I would say it's perfect for an Asian wedding!
