Peace in the valley

Hello, Everyone! Today I want to share a layout that I've done for the newest sketch challenge over at Sketch Inspiration. It's another fairly simple layout, trying to keep the focus on the photo. And here is the sketch...
I flipped the sketch and came up with this...
I dug deep into my stash and found this small collection of "Wisteria" by Basic Grey. Yes, I still had some, which is just more proof that I'm a hoarder. (sigh) At least now I'm trying to get the older stuff used up little by little. Anyway, I've got some close-ups to share...

For the Dusty Attic chippie and Kaisercraft wooden peace title I applied gesso, then randomly stamped with gold ink. To finish them I applied a layer of Tim Holtz rock candy.
On this layout I wanted to try something new so I attempted stamping with gesso. I'm still debating on if I'm happy with the result.

The beautiful butterfly is from Renea's Etsy shop. Here's her link:
The beautiful lavender roses are from the Flying Unicorn. The large white flower is handmade, while the smaller white and blue flowers are Prima with pearls centers. For the greenery I used the Spellbinders "floral" dies. Hope you have enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by and your comments! I appreciate your time and support!
