Newlyweds' Daydream

My husband's grandparents with a friend

For this layout I used paper from the Nyhavn collection by Maja Design.


On the background paper I applied black watercolour around the edges and randomly placed black and pink patches.

I also used some texture stencils with Shimmerz Texturz in Crushed Coral and Tidy Widy.

Memory Box stencil - Splatter Spray
Memory Box stencil - Splatter

These are the dies and punches I used:

My Favorite Things - Mini Delicate Doilies
Spellbinders - Grand Decorative Circles One
Cheery Lynn - Oval Doily Stacker One
Cheery Lynn - Canadian Kaleidoscope Tiny Doily
Cheery Lynn - Rum Punch Tiny Doily
Martha Stewart - Swirling Lace punch set

And the chipboard pieces:

Dusty Attic - Fancy Trim #6
Dusty Attic - Ornate Corner #8
Dusty Attic - Ornate Corner #11

I painted Fancy Trim #6 dark pink, Ornate Corner #6 white and Ornate Corner #11 grey.   I then applied Distress Crackle paint in Picket Fence to the trim and Ornate Corner #11 and rubbed Distress Inks over them, wiping off the excess.  I dabbed some white paint onto the Ornate corner #11 with my finger to make it look more distressed and to bring out some of the crackle detail.

As I did in a previous layout, I made the bead flower centers by putting a drop of Judikins Diamond Glaze in the center and pouring microbeads overtop.

Here are a couple more close-ups:
