Here is the layout I created.  I couldn't resist fussy cutting out some of the beautiful watercolor floral clusters.  I arranged the flowers in opposite corners.  I wanted to tuck the photo under the flowers in the upper left corner.  I love making my own backgrounds, so I used white cardstock for the background.  I coated it with clear gesso and let it dry.  Then I came in with some coordinating colors of ink sprays.  I sprayed the paper with water and then sprayed some color down.  I tilted the paper in different directions and just let the colors run and blend.

I cut another flower out of one of the beautiful watercolor papers and tucked in under the corner of the photo.  I tucked in some pink and navy thread for added color & texture, and then topped off the center of the flower with a wood veneer button.  I added a few chipboard stickers over to the right.  Aren't these deep rich colors so gorgeous?!

I used some of the black puffy alpha stickers to create a short and sweet title.

I used a few clear stickers here...these subtle leaves looks like I drew them or stamped them.  But they're stickers!  I wish I had a whole sheet of those.  They're the perfect detail. 

I added some white tissue paper behind my photo for added detail and to create a subtle border behind it.  I added a chipboard sticker on top of the photo.  I love the sentiments in the collection because they're very general and versatile.

More close-ups....

I loved making this background...I think I did pretty well with matching the colors to the flowers.

And a few more because I always take too many :D
