This Road: A Shabby Chic Wedding Scrapbook Page

This Road:  A Shabby Chic Wedding Scrapbook Page--a blog post by Alice Scraps Wonderland

Let's just get right to it:  I love this layout.  I mean I really LOVE this layout!  I'm so happy with how it turned out and the colors from CSI's challenge #155 are just perfect--too perfect!  (I'm literally grinning from ear to ear.)

I started off with white cardstock and used gesso and a mask to give half of the paper texture then dripped color mists down it.  I layered on some patterned paper from Prima's Something Blue Collection on the top then added two 3x4 ATCs under the larger photo and a die cut circles under the smaller photo.


CSI challenge #155


A border of lace and burlap merge the two halves along with tons of flowers, a few gems, a resin bird and feather and even a zipper.

Some thread wire and "love" die cut, flair button and brad a little something extra.  And for the finishing touch--a sweet bicycle paper clip from Maya Road!

The two banners I took as inspiration from this challenge's sketch and added my journaling about a stage of life--in this case, marriage.  I tied in the journaling with the bicycle theme:  "Our paths have merged…so let's ride this road together!"
