Making the cake . . .

I stared with some plain Golden Magenta mixed with water in a spray bottle and a Crafter's Workshop Peacock Doily stencil.  I put the stencil down on a plain white canvas and sprayed away!

Then I cut out the paper pieces to made my 3-tier Layer Cake! (The paper is  from Fancy Pants and Simple Stories.)  I used Claudine Hellmuth matte medium to put the pieces down.  I have started using this much more than glues because it is less sticky and my fingers end up with less mess on them!!

Originally, I had planned on making the background pink and white polka dot, but I couldn't get it to look right.  So I ended up spraying instead, but I had the polka dots leftover.  But if you can't have polka dots, you have to have confetti!! Luckily, I had the perfect color confetti paper! I used my basic hole punch and Voila, confetti!!

Finishing touches, washi tape edge, doodling, a small quote on the banner, a couple of American Crafts embellishments and it is complete!!
