Dare to Dream - Stuck?! Sketches Nov. 15th reveal (Blue Fern Studios & Lindy's Stamp Gang)

I love working with Blue Fern Studio papers, not only they're so beautiful, but they're heavy weight. As I was in a girly girl mood, I decided to work with BFS products and some beautiful Lindy's Gang mists to make my DT layout for Nov. 15 reveal at Stuck?! Sketches. I really love the shabby chic look of my layout.
Here's the sketch to work with, made by Laura Whitaker:
I've started with covering the  BFS paper (Love Story/ The Grand Ball) with clear gesso, then I worked with a modeling paste over TCW stencil. After it was dry, I stamped with some BFS stamps (Halftone, Dreamy), and IBS and Maya Road stamp, using Ranger's black archival ink.
Now was the time for some misting... I used Lindy's Stamp Gang products: Cotton Candy Pink, Delphinium Turquoise and Pop Rock Purple.
Matting the photo with BFS papers (Blush/ Devoted; Sanctuary/ Calling Cards), ading a stamped title (BFS /Dreamy), and some sentiments from TH chit chat, matted on a BFS paper (Timeless/ Song).
Decorating with Cheery Lynn Design die (English Tea Party), Prima flowers, metal rose, lace from my stash and microbeads). Topping all with some deluted white gesso, and that's it - finished!
Here are some close-ups:

I would like to enter this layout to the following challenges:
Moodboard at Off the Railsscrapbooking - I was inspired by the feminine feeling and the colors of the moodboard.
The vintage and shabby chic mood board at Mixed Media Place:
I was inspired by the pastel colors and the shabby chic look, as well as the colors, of the shabby chic moodboard.
Challenge YOURself asked for their challenge to use sprays/inks and to include a photo of ourselves:
I used lots of sprays and inks here and this is me in the photo :).
Country View Challenges, which asked to use stencils. I used TCW stencil on the background.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.
