Beautiful, Be Happy Be Yourself

I've been doing a lot of clean and simple layouts lately and it was high time to do a flowery layout again. I do love the flowers but I've found I've done less of them lately. Mainly because they take up so much space in my albums. I usually have to have two albums a year now just because of all the dimension.

Beautiful, Be Happy Be Yourself
I love the romantic papers with vintage roses so I fussy cut a few more from another paper to match. The only gripe I have is the paper is very thin and I had to back it with plain cardstock on the back for stability.
Lots of flowers to build up around the photo. I coloured the wooden leaves and the resin butterfly with some pigment inks before heat setting them.
For the background, I added some pigment powders to molding paste before stenciling in the doilies. I used plain molding paste for the mini dots stencil. I added distress inks to the resin heart (barely seen) and also the the wooden Joy banner.
I splattered mist inks with a fan brush to get bigger splatters and also stamped the dictionary print stamp around the page. 
I love the border of lace under the photo and the lovely handwritten "beautiful" on the title. Just loving transparent handwriting embellishments.
