Simple Pleasures - 12 X 12 Layout

Hello friends ! 
I just tried my hands on a 12 X 12 Layout this time. 
I have never done a full size one before. 
but i think this turned out very nice and i really liked it. 
And of course it had to be mixed media. 

Since my photo was floral, I decided to use all my flower power! These lovely blooms are by Itsy Bitsy.
I smuggled in some of my handmade flowers in too :) 

The ones in white in the corners  
Really love how these butterflies turned out. I did spend a while in doing them. 
They are stamped and colored with Luna watercolor pencils , after which i filled in the black spaces with some darker black pen . Love how that makes the color pop ! 

Here is another B&W pic of the LO with selective colors .... I love how it looks :) 
 Thanks for reading :) 
See u soon ! 

Challenges : 
bloomgirls august challenge (Used Blue, pink and white from the palette)
I was pretty much inspired by the colors of the spools and the floral shoe. I figured going for a dress form or a dressy fabric in my LO will be too obvious , so i went for the over all grey white and blue colors of the mood board and added a splash of color to the neutrals by using some colors from the spools. Also i have the floral element and i used an actual thread from a spool :) . 

The shell buttons are actally from a necklace that was broken so i used it here. 
The sequin comes from a small piece of unusable boarder lace.  
The sentiment is hand written on a die cut negative (sizzix fence die).
