Style: Romantic Wedding
Designer: Shauna Berglund-Immel
A beautiful bride positively glows in this gorgeous wedding layout! Shauna enlarged the photo of Regina and placed a marriage-themed Overlay on top, securing it with brads. "Let the writing on the Overlay overlap the images in the photograph," says Shauna. "Its an upscale look thats been popular in fashion and style magazines.
"Dont forgetwith Overlays, you can place them so the definition reads along the top or either side of the page, Shauna says. "I chose to cut the Overlay apart and place it toward the top of the page so I could overlap the couples photo and four smaller shots. This layered effect is a great way to get multiple photos on a page."
- Enlarge the photo to 8 1/2"x11". Mat on burgundy glimmer paper and trim to 1/16". Glue to the top of the mauve words background paper, leaving 1/2" around the top and both sides of the photo. Journal with the black pen at the bottom left corner of the words paper.
- Trim the Overlay to 8 1/2"x11". Place it on top of the photo and secure with black mini brads in each corner.
- Mat a 3"x5" photo on glimmer paper, then trim to 1/16". Mat again on the pink floral paper and trim to 3/8". Ink the edges with black. Glue to the page, topping with a sheer pink bow.
- Punch portions of photos with a square punch, mat on glimmer paper and trim to 1/16". Arrange across the Overlay, placing them just below the enlarged photo, and alternately attaching each small photo with foam tape.
