Flower Gardens

Hey there!
Happy Monday!
I am sharing a layout I created using Sketchabilities sketch #144 and the August challenge at Creative Embellishments. I had a blast mixing these 2 challenges!
I used Amy Tan's Plus One along with some stamps, Gelatos, and Creative Embellishments chippies for this fun page:

 
Here are some close ups:
Here I used one of Creative Embellishments frames and added some Gesso and inks:

 
The word "flower" I cut using my Cameo and then colored it with Gelatos and water.
I used some Thickers for the word "gardens" and stitched in place:
 
 
I used the chicken wire chipboard border and heat embossed it with silver to match the fence in my photos:
 
 
I stamped the fairy, colored it with Gelatos and fussy cut it. I also added some washi tapes:
 
 
The flowers were fussy cut from patterned paper and colored with Gelatos:

 
I stamped the mushrooms, colored with Gelatos and fussy cut them as well. The leaves were cut on my Cameo:

 
Here is the fun sketch:
 
 
and the photo I used for inspiration at Creative Embellishments:
 
 
I used the colors, fairy, flowers and mushrooms for inspiration.
 
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!
