--- Mystical Scrapbooks DT --- September Inspiration "Wedding"

 Hi Crafters


Today I'm sharing a little bit of inspiration featuring the 3 Quarter Designs - Forgotten Manuscript collection.


I'm not a huge vintage scrapper but I love the neutrality of this collection.
So I pulled out these photos from my Mother-in-laws wedding and created this layout for her.

The collection has a wonderful cut apart sheet and the only extras I added were the enamel dots and the cut file.



Here is the video of putting this layout together:




Thanks for visiting.

Happy Scrapping.

I love to use products in different ways then they are intended so I've used the Nuvo drops like a paste and applied them through a stencil.

As the liquid was thinner than normal paste, I washed the stencil between applications.
It dries with a lovely matte finish and almost looks like it's embossed on the background.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy scrapping.
