Tranquility~Blue Fern Studios Sketch Layout

For one of my Projects, I teamed up the Blue Fern Studios May Sketch with the newest Paper Release Tranquility. I love this paper collection!! The natural, slightly grungy paper designs allowed me to capture one of my FAV looks, Country Chic!!
The following is this month's sketch, and you can join in on the sketch challenge on the Blue Fern Studios Blog here:

And here is my take on the sketch:

I started with 2 layers of the Blue Fern Tranquility Papers that I distressed heavily and did some random punching on.

Here you can see where I did some peek a boos of with lace.

I created another layer with distressed and inked paper to matt out my photo, and added a metal lock to make it look like it the photo was latched to the papers. 

I then took a Blue Fern Wallflower Stamp, and stamped the pattern randomly onto my background paper. I love doing this kind of stamping, it adds the illusion of even more depth and allows you to bring in coordinating colors into your design.

Next, I took some Blue Fern Leafy Page Accents Chipboard and 1st heat embossed the pieces with Imagine Ink Oatmeal Embossing Powder, and then took an embossing dabber and inked just the edges and dipped them in Imagine Ink Peacock Embossing Ink, and heat set it.
I then added a Blue Fern Roses and Lillies Flower, and a couple of stash flowers. creating a floral piece at the top corner of my photo.

I added strips of the papers that I distressed and inked, and then over layered them with a piece of Blue Fern Scalloped Border Chipboard that was heat embossed with Imagine Ink Mushroom Embossing Powder, and cut it into two pieces so that I could layer a piece here, and 

a piece at the bottom of my photo. I added more flowers and lace and some of my hand crafted Peacock Feather Dragonflies and more lace. 

For the large floral piece at the bottom left hand corner of my photo, I used a Blue Fern Leafy Bough Chipboard, and did the same 2 tone embossing that I did on the page accents. I then added on a Blue Fern Roses and Lillies Flower, and a couple of stash flowers.
