This is my tutorial of the second page of the whimsical story book.

I am going to continue using the 12 x 12 paper pad called ‘Rustic nature’ that i bought from ‘The Works’

I have cut a 8×8 piece of card that has already got a textured look and have used ‘Pebeo’ modelling paste with the whimsical stencil to create a bit more texture down the side of the page.

I have an archway stencil that i bought second hand so not sure where it had actually came from originally, but you could use any kind of window arch die and just extend it as i have done here.

I have cut out a large flower out of another piece of card,  and small flowers to scatter round.

I have cut the photo of the beautiful bride to fit underneath the archway.

I have then tied some small pieces of hessian string which pulled from a roll and tied them into bows, i cut out a cute little butterfly and the words ‘Bride’.

The dress was made for my mum, by her mum, and what a beautiful dress it was. This is the sleeve of the dress, and also a photo of my mum as a little girl.


And voila we are all done.
