'Smile" Layout - UmWow Studio Sketch Challenge

Hello there!
I am back today with a layout I created for the current sketch 
challenge taking place over at UmWow Studio at present HERE.  

Here is the sketch.  As you can see I turned it on it's side {one clockwise 
turn to the right} to make it work with my landscape-orientation photo.

I used paper from 7 Dots Nature Walk Collection, designed by DeeDee Catron, 
who also owns UmWow Studio, as well as an UmWow mask & flair.  

The base paper already has some white paint flicks printed onto it so I just
 added a few more in a couple of shades of green, as well as my masking, which 
I misted while still wet for that lovely gel mediumy type of look you see there.  

The chipboard word is from 2Crafty Chipboard & embossed with Gold 
embossing powder, that seems to match everything these days & looks so luxe!

I printed directly on my photo as I like to do that sometimes.
I used my Canon Selphy printer, which is ever so handy,but
I did notice that the perforated line for trimming the photo
encrouched on the text so I will remember for next time not
to print my text up quite so close to the edge.  For now I
saw no reason to waste a lovely photo so used it as is.

I love the look of the Prima lace with a little random 
misting using Prima Color Bloom Sprays.

The stickers also come from Nature Walk Collection from 7 Dots, 
as do the butterfly stamps, as well as the negative sticker sheet
 pieces I have misted up & used above & below my layout too.  

Thanks so much or your visit & Happy Hump Day!
