On the Fourth Day of Christmas.....

ATDML gave to me ...

Some new Marion Smith 'Mad Tea Party' papers.

These have recently come into the shop here - and when I saw them I knew I would have to get some ...
I thought I'd grunge things up a bit as when I'm in the mood I love to sit and play with inks and mists..... so I set to with some spray mist and a photo of me at one of my favourite places in the world.
I used some white distress stain on the frame which was one I had in my stash,then braved it and sprayed some red mist over the page at the top right and bottom left..
I just loved this paper with the hearts and crown and flowers, they are all things that describe the castle -majestic,beautiful and I love it!
I had some little flowers so I arranged them round the side and the corners and cut some little white paper hearts and gave those a little spray as well..
                           Then I used a harlequin stencil and white distress stain and some little words down the other side.
These Marion Smith papers are really varied and quirky and are something a bit different.
I really enjoyed using this one and will definitely be doing some more pages with the collection.


  1. Love the way all the different elements work together on this page.

  2. So pretty. Whenever I try spraying anything, I just end up with it looking messy.

  3. This is a beautiful layout. I love the colours and the texture.
    I so, so love these papers and have stocked up. Please get more lines when they come :) xxx
