L is for Loved

The other page for Sandee, this time using an adjective starting with L, came together a lot more quickly, as I immediately thought of L is for Loved and by great good fortune the image provided by LostArtCreations for our June Challenge featured a vintage bride and groom. What could be better to show Love! I used a velvety damask fabric as background and layered it up with wadding (batting). I overlaid this with a piece of vintage lace and also sewed on a strip of vintage lace along the bottom edge.

The LostArtCreations image was printed out onto glossy photo paper, and this was stitched onto the above background using a machine zigzag stitch. I was looking for a dreamy athmosphere to accompany this vintage wedding so overlaid the entire page with a white transparent fabric with sparkles. I then added pink size 11 seed beads around the image to pick up on the pink already there as part of the image.

The dictionary description of loving was glued and handstitched on with gold thread as well as the glittery gold heart. Two more hearts were added (self-adhesive vellum).

Quite a sweet page but I love it nevertheless!
