Contest Layout Two

Layout 2 "Controlled Love
The requirements for this layout where 
"At least one layout must have no preprinted B&Ts.
It must use cardstock only, you may create your own
background paper using stamping.
and each page should have a stamping technique.

I really didn't want a picture of my deceased husband in my entry, but the idea of placing his picture in the background, almost like a ghost with the AA Acceptance prayer, I was able to handle that idea.

I decided to use the Foundry Bookplates as chains and our Love Letter Rub On's on stain glass pieces, that my friend Christine had on hand, as my found objects for this page.  I also used parchment paper and black and outdoor denim cardstock to create the roses, continuing to burn the roses with a lighter for a darker feel.

On page 2, I continued with the same use of the stain glass pieces and roses.  On the chipboard lettering each letter is raised at a different level to reflect the uncontrolled emotions.

For the piece that held my storybook together, I used the foundry bookplates and filigree charms, layering and embossing on black cardstock with silver embossing powder.

 and don't forget the tulle.
