Weaving Florals with Text-  My Sister

My Sister by Christy Strickler |Supplies Patterned Paper: Lilybee Designs; Flowers, Trim: Maya Road; Other: Doilies, letters (German Foil),jewels
This page featuring me and my sister will go in my wedding album in the section for members of the bridal party.
I noticed how many of the inspiration photos featured simple titles woven in with flowers. Each one also seemed to feature a base or frame for the design to anchor the design. I started by using the doilies as the anchor, then I added the photo and the flowers. I chose one large wire sprig to frame part of the photo. I was then able to add more flowers to the sprig as well as weaving in the title.I did need to use some dimensional glue to get everything to lay in layers just the right way. The floral design worked well for a wedding photo. It also made for a quick, yet fully embellished page. The ornate design doesn't feel simple, yet this page was made in less than an hour. It was fun to challenge myself to find the right kind of flowers from my stash. The sprig had been in my supplies for years.
