Faith Hope Love Layout for Leaky Shed Studio and Guest Designing for SEM

I'm so honored to have been asked to guest design for
Scrapping Everyday Miracles this month.

SEM has three challenges this month to choose from.
#1 Theme Challenge - Faith, Hope, Love (One or more of these)
#2 Card Sketch Challenge
#3 Layout Sketch Challenge

For all the details, stop by the SEM blog.

I've combined the theme and layout sketch challenges for my page
and feature beautiful Leaky Shed Studio Chipboard.

Weddings are such special days. Those of you who follow my blog know that Elizabeth and Andrew's relationship is centered around a love for our Lord. When I see this photo of the two of them, I sense that they looking forward to a life of  . . . 

Faith . . . Hope . . . Love

I flipped the SEM sketch as shown.

Tips and Techniques
The photo is framed with large Clock #2. I created texture with extra thick gesso that I tamped with a stencil brush. Once dry I painted with metallic gold paint. The sentiment is cut from coordinating paper using a Cameo Silhouette file.

I clustered with flowers, Prima heart gears, bling, and die cut leaves. I've also added some stamping and stenciled molding paste to the background.

The Leaky Shed Studio Butterfly on Garden Spring fits this background design on the gorgeous BoBunny paper so perfectly!!

I heat embossed the flourish with red and green Fran-tage Embossing powder, then embellished with self-adhesive pearls.

The Leaky Shed Studio Heart Key and Fancy Keyhole represent how these two hold the key to the other's heart. A simply coat of gold metallic paint gives them an easy gilded finish.

I fussy cut these pieces from coordinating paper to created this layered medallion. The layout edges are distressed and the bottom corner has some machine stitching.
