A time for weddings for Frilly and Funkie

well it is time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie ...and this time the theme is weddings.

"The season of weddings is quickly approaching and our challenge is to produce a card or project that used white plus a colour. Many couples are reaching for their favourite hues when planning their wedding celebrations and many brides are adopting colours along with white. For this weeks challenge at Frilly and Funkie, create a card or project with a wedding theme that uses white plus an additional colour."

So here is my make ( let you into a little oops....this was all white..until I read the challenge properly!!oops!)



So I started with a blank kraft covered notebook which I covered with various bits and bobs, lots of stash and idea-ology. Then when all stuck down a coat of gesso to bind it all together.





 I added beautiful lace, cogs( well you know me!), heart charms, a pen nib, and journey philosophy token.



I added wings, another pen nib, a key , a timepiece, muse token and also a little bottle with a love rub on.

Then I spritzed the cover with a spray made from broken china re-inker and also added some pewter treasure gold.


The hearts are cut from grungeboard, layered up..covered with picket fence and then wore wrapped round. I also added another fab Tim rub on for good measure.


To close the book I coloured some seam binding with picket fence distress stain, adding a type charm and rub on..with the word love in. I decided to keep this crisp white.


Well hope you like my make , there is still a week to go to join in the fun! Make sure you pop across here to join in the fun and see all the fab DT makes. You never know you may be the selected winner of the random picked winner for a yummy $25 spending spree at Lind's fab funkie junkie boutique.




have a fun and inky day!
