Always & Forever


It's getting a little chillier here in the UK now, I'm sad to see the sun go.  I'd like to share my second project, which is a wedding keepsake, and was inspired by the song 'Always & Forever':

It's made from three pages of an mdf album which I've covered with a combination of Kraft cardstock and Melissa Frances co-ordinating dps. 
On the cover is an adorable image from The Stampsmith plate "Thank Heavens For Little Girls" - I've trimmed it to fit inside the bronze frame then encased it within Ice Resin - I love how this has turned out.  I've added various charms and embellishments, and embossed some loving sentiments on either end of each page.

Another Stampsmith image appears on the inside of the third page, from the plate "Wedding Bells":.... has also been trimmed, and sits behind the little round chipboard frame which was painted before being given a coat of Decoart crackle medium.

On two of the inside pages of the mini album are small pockets - these could hold a special photograph, or a memento from the wedding - one page also has a Kraft frame which has been left open at the top, so that a special personal photograph can be slipped inside.

I've made a digital collage (my first one!) from the photographs I took, to try and show as much as possible, including the inside pages:

This was another labour of love, so I do hope you like it :-).  You still have plenty of time to join in the current Stampsmith challenge "Inspired By A Song", your creation can be anything you wish, as long as it has been inspired by a song.

Thanks for visiting
