As I wrote in my post below, it's been extremely hot here in Bucks County, pretty much keeping me inside with time to create.
Combining my love of miniatures and vintage goodness, I've been having so much fun with Altoid Tins! This time, I took a photo of my parent's wedding day and created a White Wedding Diorama.
Most everything I used for this project is vintage....not that my parents would appreciate being referred to as "vintage." Mom wears real tulle for her veil and a paper flower to represent her wedding flowers. I wanted to keep the entire piece as monochromatic as possible, only adding a *pop* of color here and there. I did this by giving Mom a pink flower to hold, and coloring Dad's corsage pink to match. Also, the pastel pearls and rusty bells set off the clean, crisp white background.
My mom loooooves sparklies so I added glitter to her dress. The background, which is hard to see, has a sparkly design too, taken from one of my own wedding cards. To me, combining pieces from both our weddings made this extra special.
I was going to wait until their anniversary to give it to them, but I was too excited! I brought it over the very next day!
