“I Do”

I am not sure if this applies to other countries but I believe, that traditionally, Springtime was a time for weddings, this apparently was the case in Scotland. I would be interested to know if anyone has any knowledge if this is true or not. Anyway, when I received this stamp, which is part of Wedding Bells plate, it brought to mind Springtime weddings. Looking outside my window it doesn’t appear that Spring is heading this way any time soon but in crafting we create our own realities, don’t we!.
For this altered canvas, as you can imagine, I did not use vintage or expensive lace. As I wanted a tiered and fluted look I found that lace with a slight stretch was easier to work . This was very messy, in fact my fingers were sticking together as I worked on adhering the  individual sections of lace to the canvas. Relaxing but time consuming. The image was adhered with silicone glue to give dimension and layered onto pattern paper which is called, appropriately,  “Wedding”.
Glamour was created with pearly bead trim, fabric flowers and to  add sparkle,  seed beads scattered randomly over the lace.

A gentle reminder that The Stampsmith Challenge Travel theme is now underway. Lynne x

    This is absolutely beautiful! I adore it! Using the lace in that way works superbly and I haven’t seen anyone use lace to do this frame. You always write your postings so beautifully too, and I totally agree that we create our own reality,

    Never heard of the Spring Wedding Tradition Lynne, sorry. But your canvas is just gorgeous. Sorry too that spring has not reached the frozen north! We’ve got snowdrops nearly over down here in the Tropical South, lol xx

    It reminds me of a wedding dress with all the pretty lace. Have you ever tried Fabric Tac? Its so easy to work with and dries almost instantly , no more sticky fingers LOL.
    Yes we have lots of Spring weddings here too.
    hugs Lynn
