Wedding Journal!

Hi Everybody!

Today’s project is for a great DT-only challenge by PJ….I am really excited for this challenge and surely will get to see some great looking creations from all the DTs at BGC. The winner of the challenge will be decided on voting by you :)

The inspiration for the challenge was the below photo grid….we are allowed to make anything except cards.

When I looked at the above photo all I could think of was “A Happy Wedding”. The colors, the flowers and the gold and silver all looked so stunning. And we know ladies that memories of this day are soooo special and really need to be captured.
Keeping this view I decided to create a 'Wedding Themed Journal'  to compliment my interpretation of the occasion shown in the above photo.

Here is my journal with a love theme.

My color inspiration from the photo are white, purples, magenta, silver and gold. And the elements I took from the picture grid are flowers and fabric :)

The silver embossed paper is by DCWV. All the flowers are handmade.

Inside (Page 1 & 2)

The First page on left  has a frame to stick photo with the sentiment 'You & Me'. The right side is a photo mat with the sentiment 'Love' and has a place to keep tags.
(Page 3&4)

The left side is for writing your memories and the right has a gold frame to insert photo and also a space to write.

(Page 5&6)

On the left side is again a photo mat and the stamped page for writing. The right side has a beautiful white frame with silver border. The white background paper and the pocket below is  made with vellum. (Hope you like this embossed vellum idea :)
(Page 7 & 8)
The left stamped page is for writing which opens and the right side has a photo mat and space to keep tags.

The opened pages with tags, photo mats and envelope to keep memories :)

(Page 9 & 10)

A photo frame on the left.  A pocket to keep tags and another small frame with embossed border on the right.

The back with glitter embossing and inking.

One last pic with the journal in full bloom:)

Hope you like my work.

 Would love if you go here and vote for me when voting starts.

Take care :)
