This is my interpretation of the Scraps of Darkness February 2012 Sketch by the talented SUEPUP!
The BRIDE featured in this photo is my maternal Grandmother, Marion Foster. This was her first marriage. It was unfortunately short-lived. Her husband came home one day and told her that he didn't love her anymore and wanted a divorce. This photo I believe was taken at Mapledale?? Park in Rochester, NY right next to the Driving Park Bridge and across the Genesee River from one of the BIG KODAK sites. I really adored the pictures and I thought they would look perfect with the papers in this kit. Her marriage to my grandfather took place in Reno and was not nearly as glamorous, I plan to scrap that picture someday too. Her bridesmaids I think are her best friends and the Dehollander cousins.
When I got this kit I made 2 homemade bottles of shimmer mist to match it. One is a shimmery bronze, the other one I call shimmer patina because it is basically green with gold highlights. The circle is chipboard from Technique Tuesday, I misted that with both colors then I used an embossing pad on it and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and hit it with the heat gun. Then I wrapped the gold satin chord I got from my Scraps of Darkness kit around the chipboard. All of the flowers got misted with both mists. After I distressed the edges of the photo mattes I misted the back along the edges to get that same color on them. The broach is nestled in a ribbon flower I made on the fly. The butterflies are from the wonderful and multi-talented Reneabouquests! Thank you for that! I hope you like it and TFL!!
