Now here is a NEW layout to share with you and it's titled Life is Beautiful. I have used papers from Webster's Pages

For my background I began with a mask and modelling paste. Once dry l added pink and red ink. Then over the top l added some stamping and ink splatters in black.
Here are some close ups

Then l began to added layers under my photo using paper, felt flowers, ribbon and lace

For the large chipboard embellishment and my title, l covered these with distress stain from Ranger and clear embossing powder, then added perfect pearls over the top.
The pink chipboard has two layers  - one of distress paint in Spun Sugar then perfect pearls in Blush.
