Morning tea at The Tearoom...


Happiness

So I finally got to enjoy morning at The Tearoom at the iconic Queen Victoria Building in Sydney. It was a decadent indulgence after a long red-eye flight. :)


The couple seated before us was dressed to the nines in labels to match the grand decor of the place....while I was still wearing my in-flight outfit because it was too early to check-in! At least they didn't turn me away...*LOL*


The morning tea was scrumptious and terribly sinful. Even the macaron was yummy. [I typically find meringue-based confections too sweet for my liking.]


Lot of fun with a new medium - Liquitex resin sand, mixed with glass bead gel and mica flakes. Love the shimmering effect.



Playing along with the challenges at Skissedilla and The Studio.


P/s: Come play along with my guest Ashley's patterned paper challenge and LESSology Challenge #29: Birthday Party.

Love the textured colors and elements! A lot of thoughts and details went into this fabulous design! I just love how this Tearoom page feels---so fancy and pretty!

What a lovely way to capture and remember a proper tea. I've attended several fancy teas, but sadly I've never worked the photos into scrapbook pages. After seeing your work, I am more eager to try to do a similar layout perhaps making a piece to hang. I like the effect of all the embellishments and glitter. Thanks for the inspiration.
