Mr & Mrs - for Lets Get Shabby

It was a case of burning the 'midnight candle' last night  (just because I could and I was on a roll) - in fact lights out 2am.  This layout had been the pipeline for a week or two and it was going to be completely different.  Lets Get Shabby's Challenge this month was to be inspired by this picture and use paint and flowers.
I love the peaches and cream theme.  I started off with a resist paper which had a circle on it and painted it with glimmer glam paint but what a disaster (that paper is now in the bin), so then I had to dig in the stash and luckily found some papers in the tone and also a beautiful peach knitted doily and this is how it ended up.
  I was inspired by the romance of the dining room setting and thus a wedding layout.  The chandelier inspired me to add the bling to the layout.  The crisp white lace added the freshness.  The base paper is Making Memories Je t'adore - a perfect wedding paper with the little gold border of hearts and flourishes.  Other PP used was MME Lost & Found Madison Avenue "Girlfriends" J'adore Paper and the photo bordered with Bella Wedding. 
 I used some really old silk ribbon for a bow.  Flowers are a mixture of Prima and Wild Orchids with Kaiser stems peeking out
 The paint aspect was painting the chipboard circles first with Gesso and then with Glimmer Glam.  The pearl hearts are from Wild Orchids.  The trinket "Mr & Mrs" is Making Memories as are the alpha.
 


The square paper doily was from my stash.  The Alpha were mounted on pp and cut around with a craft knife before inking the edges to make them stand out but not too much.  The bling was Zva Creative.

I am really pleased with the finished LO and the layout looks better in the flesh - peachy colours seem hard to photograph.  It was a great challenge - now on to the next one - maybe Prima October BAP - have a perfect photo for the Moulin Rouge collection. 

Thank you for your continued visiting of my blog and WELCOME to anyone new.  I hope your week is going well.

Until next time
...Dianne
