Supply List:
Heartfelt Creations: Paper: All Geared Up. Sunrise Lily 
Dies: Delightful Daisy die, Border Essentials die, Wildwood Florals die, Ornate Border & Pocket die, Garden Romance die, 
Other: stickles, enamel dots, beads, ribbon

I started with the Spritz 4 leaf clover Iridescent waterbased sprayable medium for colour and shimmer in my background. I use the plastic bag application along with some misting also. 

At this point I now pulled out photos, papers and accents, stamped, die cut and shaped layered flowers and projected what i wanted for my page. The above photo is taken as a reference when I remove everything to start gluing from the bottom up to the front layer.

Here I am back to gluing the layers coming forward. I am using Heartfelt Creations paper.... I die cut a border using Heartfelt Creations. The paper behind the photo has some floral images which will be the base for some 3D flowers to form a clustered accent.

On this section you can see the Spiegelmom accents - stars and sequins

More stars and sequins in opposite corner. In this close up you can also view the additional Garden Romance picket fence die accents. This collection comes with the butterfly and the bird I used also.

Super duo of tags tied together with a ribbon for a cute cluster accent. Also notice the super border essentials die cut under the photo with the added bead accents.

Heartfelt Creations Ornate border and Pockets die cut and topped off with a Butterfly Flair button.

Starting off with the floral print paper in the background there are lots of fussy cut flowers from the collection and then many more layers die cut flowers shaped with the flower shaping kit. Centres to the flowers are added using enamel dots, a bead or stickles. More stickles added to the fabulous floral cluster for sparkle.

This is a side view of the flowers to give you an idea of the depth and dimension added with there shaped flowers. They are amazing for all your creative projects.

In this section you can see the fabulous chipboards from Creative Embellishments. For this project I decided to leave them plain to added the beige brown colours to my page. The washi tape shapes cluster was a perfect fit with all the other star accents on this page.

This close up is an over view of the central section. As you can see it still showcases the fabulous photos both which are matted either in single or double colours to pop them.

This photos shows the super cute dies that were cut in doubles so I could pop one on top of each other for dimension... a cute bird and the butterfly.

When my page was what I thought was done I received my new star stamp and decided I just had to use it also... so fitting with more stars as an accent. I put them into the upper right corner and as per below photo in the lower left corner.
