The Importance of Family - Lauren Tomecek

Welcome back for some more chipboard goodness!
My first layout for today is a double featuring family photos from my wedding back in 2011. The large rose piece is so delicate and beautiful, I fell in love with it as the Expo last November when it was released but was saving it for a special occasion. I have simply painted it with acrylics and let it shine as a feature. I used up the last of my Flags in the title, and squeezed in some flowers which I heat embossed silver to match the colour scheme.

Project number two is a single page layout of my parent-in-laws' puppy, Josh. The picket fence is such a cute design but I had never found a use for it on any of my layouts previously. The title comes from an assorted set which seems to be more targeted towards little boys but I thought it suited Josh perfectly.

You can see in the close up I left the fence raw to tie in with the natural feel I was going for. The title is painted with acrylic paint and then covered with crackle medium. The Scrap Word in the corner just has stamping ink whipped over the top to let the recessed black words still show through.
