A Pretty Wedding Layout and a Grungy Art Journal Page

Sarah here today to share with you two projects in very different styles - a pretty wedding layout and a grungy, Finnabair-inspired Art Journal page!
Time to Remember
First up is my wedding layout, using Prima's Lyric collection and based on the Prima BAP for July. The colours for my wedding were black, white, pink and silvery-grey - and this layout was created to reflect that. I had lots of fun doing some masking, stamping, fussy-cutting and stitching on this one!
I used an Imaginarium Designs phrase for the title - "Time to Remember" and treated it with Viva Colour Inca Gold Metallic Rub in Old Silver; this was my first time using this product and I just love the effect!
The clock was also treated with the Metallic Rub - but then I fussy cut a clock face from the Prima papers and added some Ingvild Bolme Vintage Trinkets Clock Hands to it. The fussy-cut clock was the perfect size to embellish the centre of the 4.5 inch Clock Face - love how this turned out!

Inspire. Create. Art.
I was fortunate enough this month to take several classes with Ania Dąbrowska (aka Finnabair) and one of the classes resulted in my first foray into Art Journalling - and now I might be hooked! So I thought it would be fun to create an Art Journal page to celebrate my experience learning from Ania! This page is inspired by Finnabair's page called Tangled and uses her gorgeous Prima Sunrise Sunset papers, stamps and Vintage Trinkets, as well as some "found objects" (aka I raided the husband's toolbox) and thread. The picture of Ania and me was taken following the first class.
I used the new Loolabelle's Nested Arrows and Loolabelle's Chevrons 2 chipboard shapes. I left the shapes plain when I attached them to the journal page so that they could absorb the misted colours of the page. I also sprinkled some pigment powder directly onto them in places and misted it with water to get the really cool gold metallic effects. Here are some close-ups of the chipboard!
