Wedding present

Hi Everyone - hope you're having a great weekend despite the weather cooling down.  As part of their wedding present I wanted to make Ian and Gill a collage box frame with some of their wedding photos.

I did all the main layout in CraftArtist.  I deliberately didn't put digital embellishments on the bottom left hand side of the page as I wanted to put "real" ones on before I framed the entire piece.  This is what it looked like when I printed it out.

And here's the finished gift after the addition of flowers, gems and pearl pins (luckily I actually had some the right colour to match Gill's dress).    I added ribbon and some self adhesive "studs" which are a real pain to put on straight as they stick to everything!!!  lol

A couple of close ups of the details.


Thanks for taking the time to drop by.
