Hi there, I thought I'd share a small project I worked on this week. While visiting my in-laws I happened to walk past a framed LO I had given them 2 years ago around the time of their 50th wedding anniversary. It looked so "not me" if I think of the way my style has changed these last 2 years so I decided I needed to update the LO for them.
The picture is one of my favourites from their wedding album and in my original LO I had it scanned and printed in sepia. This time I decided to use a black and white picture instead which I knew would work well with the Bo Bunny Enchanted collection I planned on using.
I wanted to stay true to the original LO by keeping some of the design elements like the circle and floral cluster so I used a sketch by Beggahuna as inspiration for the updated LO. I love using a lot of distressing and all sorts of paints and pastes but decided to simply things and not go all out for this LO because my in-laws are elderly and my current grungy style may not appeal to their tastes. I did however distress the paper edges with my Zutter Diistrezz-It-All (I just LOVE that machine!!!)
My mother-in-law's favourite colour is blue so I used pops of a dusty shade of blue as a contrast against all the B&W.It's difficult to see in the picture but I added some glitter to the black circle which complimented the glittery finish of the Bo Bunny pp's. I also painted my white Gardenia with some Creative Inspiration paints which gave it a beautiful shimmer. The lace trim below the photo is actually silver and not grey as it appears in the photo. The pretty B&W butterflies are from Angelics's etsy shop.
Here's a quick peek at the original LO
Now I only hope that my in-laws will like the updated LO too.
