Flower Garden: Scraptales Mega Meet Layout

Here is another layout that I created using some Fabulous papers from Scraptales.  They are very "Heathery"..the colors are just PERFECT!
I decided I would take some photos of some of the flowers I purchase yesterday.  My mother and I went out on our annual "spring flower shopping trip, to get flowers for our gardens."  I can remember as a little girl going with my mother to all the local greenhouses.  I would scoop up all the flower pieces that had fallen off the flowers.  My favorite flower was the Fushia.  I would pick these up, and pretend they were fancy earrings.
Lucky for me, I found an awesome sketch over at 
Stuck on Us Sketches.  Here it is below...
Isn't this just a beautiful sketch.  This is my first time playing there...I have wanted to for a while...and when I saw this sketch...I knew it would go well with my papers from Scraptales.
Here is my take on the challenge.
I used my new butterfly dies by Ranger in my Big Shot Expression. I also used some Dusty Attic dragonflies and a butterfly.
Above you can see one of the dragonflies.  I painted it cream, then covered the center with perfect pearls in Gold, and the wings were painted red, spritzed with Red Perfect Pearls, and then covered with UTEE.
I used the new Ranger ATC die cut with photo corners...for my journaling spot.
I used vintage photo on all my pp's and did distress them all with my distrezz tool.  I used gold embossing powder.
I also used vintage photo on all my photos, to tone down the color.
A few more close ups.
I also cut out some butterflies with my Silhouette SD.  I used a photo of my flowers, and used a butterfly file from the Sillhouette Online store.
This is the bottom right side of the page.  One last look at the finished page.
Thank you for visiting!
