July Inspiration With Debbie, Featuring Serendipity and Sanctuary

Hi everyone!  Hope everyone here in the USA is enjoying their summer.  The weather has been up and down, sunny, hot, mild and breezy with a twist of rain. Can't complain though.  Lots of time to spend outdoors on the weekends!  Today I have three layouts to share created with the Serendipity and Sanctuary paper collections, along with lots of chipboard, embossing powders, glitter and  flowers.  
 My first layout features the Serendipity paper collection and a sweet photo of a friend's daughter.   I used the Merriment paper for the background and added some texture  with some masking, paint splatters, misting with the Imagine Ink Sky and Cotton Candy Mists, along with some random stamping with the Garden Frolic stamp.   The layers under the photo are from Calling Cards, Anticipation, Chronicle and Fascination.

I used the Deja Vu Dangle Chippies here, embossed with many colors, Mushroom, Snow, Auburn, Fuchsia and Breeze.

To the side of my photo is a cluster of Blue Fern flowers, including the Attic Charm Daisies and Glitter Roses along with some Tranquil Lilies.  I cut apart a Berry Stem chipboard piece which was embossed with a mixture of Auburn and 14 Karat embossing powders.  I added a few metal flowers which were embossed with Snow, 14 Karat, Breeze and Fuchsia embossing powders.

Here I've placed pieces of the Quatrefoil Panel and Tangier Page Panel, both embossed with Snow, 14 Karat, Breeze and Fuchsia embossing powders along with a sprinkling of Blue Ice and The Pink Ladies Imagine Ink Glitter.

My next layout features the Glee paper from the Serendipity collection.   I added some  masking and paint splatters.  Layers  underneath the photo are from the Imagination paper and Keepsakes paper from the Timeless collection.  I had a lot of fun working on this layout mixing embossing powders to compliment my picture, which I took it a few years ago.  I have a big planter on my deck full of daisies. 

The Blooming Flourish chipboard was embossed with a mixture of Verdant, Sage and Auburn embossing powers.  I cut the flourish in half and used it on both sides of my photo.  The Royal Monarch Butterfly and Mini Ring Things chipboard were covered in brown ink and then embossed with a mixture of Verdant, Auburn, Chili Power and Tangerine Embossing Powders.  

The title is from the Brilliant, Amazing, Dazzling word set, embossed with the same mixture of embossing powers I used on the butterfly and mini rings.  I used a stencil on the background with some brown texture paste and sprinkled on some Autumn Glitter and Auburn embossing powder.

My third layout  was created using papers from the Sanctuary Collection.  I used the Botanical Garden for my background and added some random masking. 

To the right side of the photo I used the Gingers Poppies Chipboard which I embossed with Mushroom Imagine Ink embossing powder and then lightly inked with some cranberry and purple ink.  I used some Blue Fern flowers from the Attic Charm Daisies, Tranquil Lilies and Courtship Blooms. 

The Floral Lattice Bits Chipboard was embossed with Mushroom and lightly ink with cranberry and purple inks.

The title is from The Optimist Word set, which I lightly inked with purple.  I used two purple roses from Courtship Blooms which I sprinkled with some Merlot Glitter and then misted a darker purple.
