YOU & ME {merly impressions & kaisercraft}

hello crafty friends!

i've got a brand new layout to share with you today - 

"YOU & ME"

i really loved working with this sketch! it has all the best elements to create a fabulous layout!

the SOMETHING BLUE paper line is wedding themed, but i decided to use a picture of my hubby and me, still taken on a wedding, but not ours. we were invited to be first witnesses to my best friends wedding and this is one of the pictures we made on this day.

to create my layout i started with black pattern paper – mr & mrs. i drew the white frame along its edge and added the pre-punched sweet love pattern paper on top. i used MARTHA STEWART "cherish" punch-around-the-edge set. 

 i added different pattern paper layers under my picture to create a better visual spot for it. i used the mini paper pad from the same collection.

instead of a second pictures, as it is shown on the original sketch, i decided to add some of the lovely die cuts from the collectables pack matching this collection. i used RANGER liquid pearls - white opal and black onyx - to decorate most of them. 

then i adhered them onto my background using mounting foam tape.

to decorate my layout further i used KAISERCRAFT ribbon roses ivory, mini paper blooms coconut and mini paper blooms black. i die cut the foliage using pattern paper and various dies from MARIANNE DESIGN.

i drew the swirly design on the background paper using LIQUID PEARLS black onyx. for the spatters i used TATTERED ANGELS glimmer glaze oil slick. the pretty white lace is also from KAISERCRAFT lace pack - white.

to finish off my design i added KAISERCRAFT black rhinestones

i hope you enjoyed today's post!
