Garden of Weedin' Layout

Hi everyone,

Lots of bling on the layout I have to show you today. This is a layout of my friend and I making our DIY Dandelion blowing in the wind t-shirts. We made them with a loofah and fabric paint. You can check out the post on this craft HERE. 

I got a little crafty with this layout as well. I used this sketch from PageMaps:

I thought this sketch was very fitting as the flowers look like the dandelions we made. I started out with the blue card stock base and then took a white card stock and spritzed it with Tattered Angels Electric blue glimmer mist and then spritzed it with Tattered Angels Viva pink glimmer mist. Loved the results. It matched my photos perfectly!!
I then went around the bottom and top of the white glimmer misted paper with some pink glitter glue and then around the blue edges with some silver glitter glue. It's a very sparkly layout with so much bling!
 Since dandelions are weeds, I went with the title of "Garden of Weedin'" and I cut this at 1" from my Cricut and used green card stock and then went over it with green stickles!
 From my Accent Essentials cartridge, I found this "flower" cut and it's in a group of flowers. Almost looks like snowflakes. It cuts 4 images at once. Two of the snowflake/flower, one diamond shaped image, and what looks like a sparkle/asterisk image. For the open ones, I layered the two snowflake flowers together and then some I folded over to get the smaller ones on the bottom. Then I stickled them with Crystal stickles and used green stickles for the stem.
I've very pleased with how this layout turned out and I think it's very crafty for a crafty subject that I was scrapping. 

 Thank you for taking a look and your comments are appreciated!

Happy Scrappin'!!
