Mad Hatter's Tea Party by Tracey Campbell

 Hello Bee Arty people, I am showing of my latest creation using the Mini Collection Tea Time in Wonderland, I just had to use this collection for my daughters "Mad Hatter Tea Party" she had for her 10th Birthday.

I was actually away on a work trip when I put this layout together, so I had limited supplies and space to create, but I just love how it turned out.

To start the layout I cut out two of the tags from the Tea Time in Wonderland Mini Collection Kit, I picked the Queen of hearts and the Queens card guards tags. I cut out the middle of the circle so that I could put some string through the tag, I also slightly distressed the edges of the tags to given them an older look. I also carefully trimmed a round the Queen's hand and the flamingo so that I could have them laying over the top of my photo, as you can see in the first photo of this blog.

Next I cut out a 23 x 9 cm rectangle from the pink diamond paper and distressed the edges.

Next I adhered the diamond paper to the Mad Hatter Tea Party paper, lining it up with the right hand edge, so that it ran horizontally across the paper, trying not to cover too much of the illustration. I had brought a could of photos of the food from Bronte's Tea Party with me on the trip so I trimmed them down so that they were 7x7 squares and sanded the edge to distress them up a bit. I then used double sided table to stick the photos across the diamond paper running in a diagonal down the page. 

I had a larger square photo 10x10 cm which I also distressed the edges with a bit of sand paper and then tied some twine around the bottom edge and finished it off with a little bow. Adhere it above the two right hand photos in the diagonal row, tucking the tags behind it, finish off by threading some twin through the tags. 

Next fussy cut some of the images from the cut-apart-sheet in the Tea Time in Wonderland Mini Collection. I picked images that would tie in with the Tea Party theme. I also cut out two of the labels; Happy Birthday and Just For You, from the tag paper and used them a small title accents. 

Using 3 dimensional tape adhere the images around the photos.

Here are a few close ups.

Hope I have given you a bit of inspiration and shown that you don't have to have a lot of supplies to create something lovely, especially if you have a wonderfully beautiful mini collection such as the Tea Time in Wonderland. See you next time.
