I heart glimmer mist- DT project for YMH

Have you tried Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists yet?..  
Oh, I have and I absolutely love the stuff.. I got in the creative mood yesterday and wanted to think outside of the box a bit..and so here is my layout I created:

I used these amazing embossed papers by: SEI Windsor collection but I didn't have flowers to coordinate with the layout.. What to do, what to do?..LOL
 I decided to grab some of my older Prima flowers, some green leaves,  Tattered angels Glimmer Mist and some Ranger paint dabbers in gold..
I wanted to make my own flower vine..so, grabbed some wire, green plant tape, the green leaves, some of the roses I found in my stash and glimmer mist (in Suade and coffee Shop).. wrapped the tape around the wire and then glimmer misted it, which gave it a nice brownish glow.. I adhered it to the layout using the wire, by punching a few small holes into the layout and wrapping the wire through.. 
then grabbed some of my older Prima flowers which I then attached those to the vine, by gluing them onto the layout, then the roses and finally adding some final finishing touches with gold paint..

Here are some close ups:
You can see here that I brushed gold paint on EVERYTHING..LOL
all the brown flowers and leaves have been Glimmer Misted.. The flowers were all originally white and the leaves were green.. 
Added some tiny white roses in the middles of some of the flowers.. painted them with gold paint..

As for my title..
 I found some over sized chipboard letters in my stash, that I've had FOREVER and never really knew what to do with them.. I painted them gold with the Ranger dabbers.. then rubbed a little black paint here and there.. added some gold and brown ribbon and finally a cute little charm I hand made..

a close up of the hubby..LOL and some of the roses.. 

I am so happy how this layout turned out, not too feminine even though its covered with flowers.. I love the fact that I can take a flower of one color and make the color I need and all I have to have is some glimmer mist in my stash, which I really need to stock up on...

All right then fellow crafters.. That's my Monday post and I hope you like it as much as I do..
I want to thank you all so much stopping by today and checking out my Monday project for Your Memories Here..
oh and before I forget.. There are some spots left at Sweet Retreat in Pittsburgh..I'd go, but that's a long trip for me and my boss wouldn't be too happy with me skipping out on work..LOL
Hope everyone has a fantastically Scrappy week..
