Thank You - Sketchabilities Sketch No.133

Hi everyone,
how are you this time? In case you haven't follow me from the last post, I would like to make something different. I'd like to encourage people and myself with some nice words, as sometimes I need it as well. So, here's one for you and me,"Train yourself to find the blessing in everything." Hope you like it. And here's the Sketchabilities with Sketch No.133
 We are excited to have 
13@rts here with us as a Premium Sponsor in 2015. 

13@rts is a Polish manufacturer of mixed media art products and thick and originally designed scrapbooking papers, stencils and variety of embellishments. It was created by Aida Domisiewicz a.k.a. Ayeeda 2,5 years ago. The company is developing fast and is already widely known in different countries all over the world.
Our clients praise 13@rts goods for their great quality and very good prices. We are innovative and we’re introducing new products and techniques into mixed media art. We were the first company in the scrapbooking industry, which put together under one brand all basic mixed media products including sprays, inks, water and acrylic paints, acrylic mediums, glass beads, microbeads, glitters and papers. We constantly work on new products, so there is more to come from us soon.

Here's my layout...

I started to love white paper more nowadays, hope you don't mind about it. Well, off me go gesso-ing my paper. Once it dried, I used the stencil from Balzer Design - Mini Leaf Frame where I will put my photos. I used smaller photos this time as I want to stress more the embellishment and layers. Plus, I had this inspiration from Finnabair having her layout using a smaller photo as well, so I thought I gave it a try (and I love how it turned up). I used new sprays that I've got from last year from Lindy's Stamp Gang - Cape Cod Coral, Clam Bake Beige, Bodacious Blush and love the results. Put all the embellishments and chipboards together, did all the gesso with all of them and then sprayed some more of the sprays to match the background colors.
The embellishments that I used are filigree, resins, our chipboards and microbeads from 13@rts.
A little trick for you who wondering how to blend all the embellishment more closely to the background, I always did extra brushing around the sides with my brush(small to medium brush).
I would like to join this layout for Pixels and Papers Challenge Blog with the picture below...
I got inspired using the color pink I guess, to describe how my love is... 
and The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge with the theme "Think Pink"
