Here's a layout I created using Pink Paislee's Daily Junque papers and a mix of their Daily Junque and Butterfly Garden embellishments.

I used some muslin cloth as a base for some texture, and then layered some distressed patterned papers over this.

I then cut out the "tickets" from the Daily Junque Tickets paper and arranged them around the photo using pop-up dots.

Add in some pretty flowers and lace from Prima, butterflies and other die-cuts from the Butterfly Garden collection, and pearls, and it makes for a layout with texture and dimension. :)

The alphas were first sprayed with Tattered Angels' Olive Vine glimmer mist. It wasn't quite the shade that I wanted, so I applied a thin layer of Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint in Scattered Straw over this. After this is dried, I used a sanding block to scrape off the crackled part of the paint, leaving only the bottom, non-crackled part on the alphas. I then sprayed another layer of glimmer mist in Iridescent Gold over this, and voila! Quite a roundabout way but it's just the shade I wanted without having to buy more materials. :)

Thanks for dropping by!
