Nana's Garden Wedding

I would love to share with you all today a page I have made celebrating my munchkins at their Nana and Grandads Wedding. I have loved the flower fairies since I was a child and when I found this amazing paper from 49 & Market at Arnolds Scrapbooking I visualised my idea near immediately and my little fairies in the fairies garden came to life.

It's all about the paper and I have used 3 sheets of "At the Quarry" from the Flower Fairies of Spring. I have dyed a few strips of lace and muslin to coordinate and have cut a faux nest in 2 and filled the portions with moss. Chipboard words from 2 Crafty, some pearls, a jewellery finding and a button are the only additions. No flowers!!... which with all the beautiful elements of the paper I found it was all I needed.

From the 3rd sheet, I have cut a number of elements to 3d.
    The second sheet I have cut the central area out and cut away the outer details.
The first sheet is the base. I have attached lace to the bottom edge and lace/pearls along the top edge. I have also mirrored one of the pieces from the 3rd sheet as an overhang at the bottom as this page will be hanging on a wall.
Sheet 2 is 3d layered over sheet one in one large piece then the elements from sheet 3 are added along with the nests, chipboard, additional lace and muslin.
Don't throw anything away!! I have used the offcut from the centre of the 2nd sheet to create the diamond embellishments.

I mixed different levels of frost gray with peacock green RIT dye to colour match the lace banner.
The chipboard words are really fine and dainty.
For 'Precious' I have used white paint and Silver Nikko.
For the 'Timeless' I have used white paint first. Let it dry then add yellow paint, let it semi dry then rub it back in places so it blends against the papers.
