adthis + basb

i was fortunate enough to have my lo picked for ad this april 13 challenge, you can view the announcement here. aside from the lovely rak from elisa, i also had the chance to play with them for the april 27 ad. the challenge was to use the ad below as inspiration and use dimension in your layout. i created the flower from a tutorial in the cosmo cricket site. i love how it turned out so i might be making more of this. i also created the pleated flower which i used as a backing for the letter b in my title. the glitter i used for the chipboard swirl created a bit of mess but i think it was worth it. for the layers of flowers on the upper left portion of the picture, i had to spray glimmer mist to get the exact shade of pink that i needed. and oh yes, we weren't really bridesmaids, we were part of the secondary sponsors. but bridesmaids make a better title, doesn't it?

adthis 27 gdt + basb challenge #11

when i was looking at my lo, i realized it had all the elements for basb challenge #11 that i wanted to join in. we were asked to use something old, something new, something, borrowed and something blue for the wedding. here's my list.

something old: the fuschia organza ribbon i used is part of my ribbon scrap stash, i had it since last year when i was picking out swatches for our wedding. and of course, the butterfly stamp - i have been using it for ages.

something new: new techniques i tried were the paper flowers at the bottom right and the pleated flower i used as backing for my title. picked up tutorials for noth techniques over the web.

something borrowed: the picture was borrowed from the photographer of my friend's wedding.

something blue: well, the rhinestones on the butterfly, one of the flowers on the upper left corner, the pleated flower and of course the patterned paper running in the middle of the page.
