Stuck?! Sketch Challenge Entry

Hi lovelies!
Rachelle here sharing this layout I created for entry in a challenge at
Stuck?! Challenge Blog 
I rarely have time to enter challenges, but I found time for this one.
I so love Laura's sketches and I have been wanting to join a challenge.

Here is the awesome May 1st. sketch...

This is my take...

Close Up Views...
 I started with a mixed media background then applying the chipboard.

Then it was time to apply layers of paper and fun photos.
I loved this color scheme of mint green, brown, tan, light blue, 
and a bit of white. Next I applied the pretty embellishments.
Can't forget journaling which usually comes last.

Some supplies used...
stenciling, gesso, spritz, enamel dots, chipboard, ink and a floral cluster.

So there you have it all finished!
I so enjoyed creating this page for a challenge entry. Hope you like it.

I applied yellow lace and yellow pearls.
