Timeless Florals Layouts

So some of you may be a little confused with the title of my post today.
A Layout?
Nancy does cards not scrapbooks, well today I have a special project to share for my Altenew certification classes.  I still have several more courses to complete and there are a couple of scrapbook layouts I can choose and I thought it would be a good challenge.

Now, I don't have supplies from the Altenew scrapbook paper line so I needed to come up with an idea using my floral stencils, stamps and dies.

I had a great picture of my daughter to use and decided that I would use a stencil to create a ghost image on my paper.  I also wanted to use the 

to enhance the floral aspect of the layout.

I cut several blossom dies in white and gray, layering one set and then adhering gold foil as an accent. (totally a happy accident when I used spray adhesive on the front and was able to salvage the blossom)

 I inked the background with Dew Drops and Mountain Mist from Altenew.  This created a very soft fun floral effect.

Matting the picture with back and gold created a great focal point and then I added various components from my stash.  
The fun white accent on the left of the photo is 

Washi tape, a gold dot paper, and a couple of black gems completed my project.

Here's a video of my process

Thanks for stopping in today
