Lovely for LGS

Hi all! It's reveal time once again at Let's Get Sketchy and I have my inspiration page based off this week's fabulous sketch.
 I used some beautiful papers from Blue Fern for this page. On the background I've a bit of random stamping and stenciling. The flowers, lace, string, and buttons are from my stash. The resin birdcage is from Spare Parts I think. And the beautiful butterflies are from Reneabouquets.
And here's our fabulous sketch this week.
I hope you'll join us. Thanks so much for coming by!
 Have a creative day!

Remember the Past for Reneabouquets

I hope everyone is enjoying their Good Friday. I have a lot of family events/obligations scheduled this weekend. They are really keeping me busy lol.  But first I have my latest page that I created for Reneabouquets using products from the shops that I'd love to share with you today. And I have my product list with direct links posted at the bottom.
I have used a mix of older Prima and Kaisercraft papers for this page, punching and/or distressing my layers, then adding some softness by tucking in the beautiful lace along the edges. I did a bit of stamping with a script stamp around the background, then using a stencil and texture paste I added just a little more interest and texture. Using a recycled lid and gesso, I added the rings. To darken my chipboard pieces I simply gave them a few quick sprays of the Tim Holtz distress spray in Walnut stain.
To add even more texture and detail I added seed beads to the flower clusters. Then to finish off the background I added some splatters.
To add just a bit more of a vintage feel I added two small key trinkets to the already gorgeous Lipstick Kisses butterflies. 
Products used from Reneabouquets:

Thanks so much for dropping by! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!
