Always Layout - Pion Design

I've been eager to use this sheet of paper from Pion's "Studio of Memories" collection but I wanted to wait until I had the right photo in mind. Then, after looking though my wedding album for another layout (and with a little help from my Dusty Attic stash - see my Etsy shop for more available pieces of chipboard)... I finally had the right concept for this layout. The flowers are Prima and the bling is one ZVA flourish that I split into 3 (thanks to my Calgarian friend Bonnie for the bling!). I simply used white and light gray chalk inks on the DA frame.


Design Tip: Using gesso and a soft paintbrush, lightly "stipple" the edge of you picture for soft dreamy effect and to give the sanded chipboard edge a nice finish.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I so totally love white-on-white or mono, gives a stunningly elegant feel! how awesome that the DA fitted into the frame of the Pion frame, a total killer combo! and thanks for the tip on stipling Gesso onto photos, it really does give a fantastic effect. Ever so gorgeous page Vicky, love it!! xoxoxo
