Family Layout

This layout has taken such a long time to complete. I started it at a crop a few months ago and lost of one the chipboard letters after painting, stamping, inking and glossing them all.
So then I had to find another of the same font, but didn't have one so had to adapt another letter. Then I tried again at the following crop but forgot the stamp!
Eventually I finished off the letter to go with the others and completed the layout!

Although the papers are Christmas ones, Basic Grey Wassail, I felt the colours worked well with the wedding photos. The letters were painted with white acrylic paint, then stamped with a leaf stamp from Clarity Stamps. I inked the edges heavily with colorbox chalk inks, then glossed them with glossy accents.
I rolled back one corner of the paper and held it down with a button and loop feature.
Close up of the button detail. 

Stitch detail added with white gel pen. I included some self adhesive flat back pearls and some numbers from Prima.
The photo shows the family at my nephew Mark's wedding earlier this year.
The layout was inspired by a layout by Angelica on Scrapbook.com
