Good Day Everyone

This is a very quick share with you for a layout that I just completed.
I really, really love the wood design papers that you can get now.  I chose this one because I love the cream and brown tones throughout the paper.  The picture I chose ended up blending quite nicely with the background paper.
I first stencilled, in a t-shape, using a stencil with a diamond shape on it. and modeling paste.  I put together a collage of papers for the background behind my picture.  I had chipboard pieces in my stash that also had a diamond shape pattern to it.  I adhered my picture to the collage using pop dots, then I laid it down without adhering for placement of the chipboard, one at the top and one at the bottom.  When I was happy with the placement, I adhered everything down.  I also had a chipboard picture frame (I believe it is from Fab Scraps)  that I painted with white gesso.  I adhered it to the 
picture as shown to frame the adorable face of my grandaughter.
Next I added some soft creamy yellow flowers and a couple of peach coloured ones.  I tucked in some cheesecloth around the bottom left flowers for more texture.  Added some pearls here and there and a white gear.  My title I left in its original state as I thought it blended quite nicely with the wood grain of the background paper.  I added some peach coloured micro beads in and around the flowers and on the petals of some of the flowers.  I also lightly brushed some white gesso onto the flowers.
And here you have it.  Simple, yet pretty.
