For our wedding my best friend Tyler played the piano during the ceremony. It was so wonderful to have live music. He played so beautifully I wanted to create a LO that honored that. I used both Basic Grey June Bug and Basic Grey Marrakech for this layout. I cut out the border strip on the left side from some of the June Bug paper and then wrapped a piece of orange ribbon around the cutout. This gave it a little more dimension. I used more orange fiber around the photo and then as a bow on the top of the hidden journaling card.
I stamped under the matting for the photo to give a little more interest to the background cardstock. I triple matted the photo with each layer going in a different direction. I didn't want to hide to much of the papers so I felt this was a good way to show them off a little more
I added Basic Grey June Bug Glazed brads along the side of the middle matt for a little extra added dimension. Finally my favorite part of the lo is the title. I used Tim Holtz grunge board alphas from the nature pack. I inked them with a layer or Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Ink and then on the bottom half I inked another light layer of Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. It gave the letters a very nice two tone look.
