Six months ago my daughter got married in a beautiful outdoor setting with over 150+ guests in attendance. For the past few months I have been working on her wedding scrapbook (many of those layouts are found here on my blog in the scrapbooking category) and today I wanted to share a new 12" by 12" page idea with all of you.
I took a 5" by 7" wedding photo and matted in onto olive green cardstock, then white cardstock and then brown cardstock (triple mat) leaving an 1/8" edge around the green & white mats and a 3/16" edge around the chocolate brown mat. I accented the photo with a "Husband & Wife" file tab at the top and underneath the photo is a cardstock cut-out that says "This Is Your Life" which I attached with tiny dark brown brads.
To accent the large wedding photo I added a tag at the top right corner that says Forever & Ever and attached it with a dark chocolate brad. I also inked around the edges so that it would pop off the page. To finish up I added one more 3-dimensional chipboard embellishment to the right of the photo that says "Live Laugh Love".
I really like how this rustic wedding scrapbook page layout turned out. I wanted my color scheme to match the photo which is done mostly in earth tones. The only pop of color on the entire page is the blue & white wedding bouquet and the groom's tie and vest which are both in the center of the layout. It's really appealing overall to the eyes and the viewer is immediately drawn to the bride & the groom.
