Scrap 365 Sketch Challenge September Part 2

Having stuck quite closely to the original sketch for my first layout I decided to have a second attempt but this time use the sketch more for inspiration rather than exactly.  
Once again I used one large photo instead of the three small ones and this time I used small photos instead of the circles down the side of the photo.  I also replaced the small cluster in the bottom left with an almost mirror image of the top right.

I love adding pretty fiddly little bits to my layout and so added these beads to the end of the ribbons on my journalling tags.
 I had to use feathers somewhere in the layout to mimic our fascinaters  and so I cut two in half and tucked the halves under paper pieces around the photo.
 The paper was the perfect colour for our clothes but I wanted to add some purple to tie in with Mum's dress and so I coloured a few sections with purple glitter.
 When using my cosmic shimmer sprays for another layout I had placed the paper to be sprayed onto a piece of card and then rubbed the mist while wet to hide the area where the paper had been.  The resulting card has been sitting in my paper stash and was ideal to use for the lettering.  I used a stencil on the back of the card and then hand cut my letters.  I mounted them onto white ribbon coloured with ink so that they stood out form the patterned background.

I wanted to journal onto tags but didn't want them hid in pockets so I hinged them onto the page and secured them by tying their tags together.
