I really love this image from Lili of the Valley and painted it up in their wedding colours which were pink and white.
I used lots of flowers, ribbon, jute mesh and lace all from The Ribbon Girl and I was really pleased with how it turned out. I love the combination of the rustic jute mesh together with the soft velvet ribbon and lace.
I also made a little bound book using the same image. I covered 2 pieces of stiff mountboard with patterned papers and added a strip of contrasting coloured paper along one edge. I wrapped all the raw edges around the edge of the mountboard and stuck them down on the reverse side of each cover. I then punched a hole in the opposite edge, added a hole reinforcer cut from the same contrasting backing paper, threaded a piece of narrow pink satin ribbon through the hole and stuck it down on the reverse with tape. I then lined the inside of each cover with kraft paper. I cut 40 square pages of plain kraft paper for the inserts, and bound the lot together with my binding machine using matching pink wires. Sorry about the photo quality, I forgot to take a proper photo before I gave it away, so only had a basic picture on my phone so the colours are a bit bright.
Hope you brought your sun glasses!
