May Project 12 layout-Tea Time

Alright, here is my May Project 12 layout.  I just got them both done at the same time, which is easy since I am using the sketches to get caught up instead of doing what I did in May.  Maybe next year I will do a monthly layout.  We will see.  I am sure I will still be just as behind as I am right now, although this has really helped me out.  You should give it a try.

Here is the sketch...

...and here is my layout.

Here is a detail shot of the journaling.  I wanted to use the journal spot stickers that came with the Crate Paper line I used, so my journaling was adapted for that.  I does fall within the same area of the sketch.

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to color the Kaiser Craft wood shapes.  I added a piece of glimmer vellum behind the teapot so you wouldn't see the corner of the photo behind as much.  Even though their tea was cold water, I wanted the gems to look like steam coming off the cups of tea.  :)

The doily was left over from another project and the mist color matched the pink in the papers.  I die cut the letters for my title.

I added gems along the top border too for another small detail.

Let me know what you think.

Have a good one!  I  more stuff to share when I get the chance.
