Smile Wedding Layout

Hi Friends:  Today's creation is a new layout of my dad's wedding.  It was a beautiful wedding, but it happened to be a rainy day.  That didn't stop them from being truly happy - this picture really captures the joy of the day!  Thanks for taking a peek!

Process:
I started with a gray cardstock background, then layered my MME pattered paper sheet, with torn/distressed edges.  I prepped with clear gesso, then used my Teardrop stencil to add raindrops to the background, using Chartreuse CM Iridescent Medium.  Once dry, I added the below Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on the edges and around the stenciled areas and used them to color the doily.  I colored the ribbons with Distress Stain and the silver LSG spray, then colored/edged the sentiments and picture frame, as well.  I cut the title with my Cricut from the same background cardstock, then heat embossed with LSG embossing powders.  I found the Live Your Story charm in my stash and thought it was perfect for the story of my dad's wedding.  I added some cheesecloth, Prima flowers and wire borderss, then finished it off with splatters of white gesso and the LSG sprays.
