And since I am a scrapper by nature, I created a layout with an Alice in Wonderland theme for the occassion. I created the background paper in the layout using a tutorial my friend Wendy introduced me to. The fabric paper tutorial is from Shimmerz Paints. I used some saved glittered tissue paper from a long ago-gift, stamped clocks, tea pots and cups on it and sprayed shimmer on it in a few colors. I used Aleene's decoupage glue. I dusted it with Perfect Pearls in Pearl and let it dry for 24 hours. I trimmed the fabric paper to use in the layout and added photos of my favorite show as a kid, Disney's Adventures in Wonderland. I matted the photos and added them to the layout. I also added flowers and hand made ribbon roses! Below are photos of the fabric paper before I used it in the layout, the layout, and some close-ups! I hope you enjoy it and the rest of your Mad Tea Party!
Mad Tea Party Fabric Paper. This is the paper I created for the layout especially for today's Mad Tea Party.
Wonderland Memories layout. This is the layout I created especially for today! I wanted to add a layout that showed my love for Wonderland. Disney's Adventures in Wonderland was my first experience with Alice in Wonderland! I know most kids see the Disney movie or read the book first but my first look at this wonderful world was in this show. After I watched this, I couldn't get enough of Wonderland! Thank you for looking!
Close-up of top right of layout. I cut and decorated the tea cups and teapot for this myself! The boders are punched with EK Success's Card Suits Edger Punch and I used a vaious array of American Crafts' Thickers for the title. The red letters started off pink but I covered them with Christmas Red Stickles.
Close-up of Bottom Left of layout. The roses were so much fun to make. The purple and turqouise flowers are store-bought and I used my Cricut Expression to cut out the black flourishes.
