One of the main features of this layout is these fantastic Palm trees. After priming them with gesso I also randomly smeared them in light molding paste. Then I painted them with green and brown Shimmerz paints.
Finally after adding my flower clusters, I decorated them with two different types of 2 Crafty leaves. I used both the winter leaves and the simple leaves. I used the same techniques on the leaves as I used on the top of the palm trees.

Last but not least here is a layout I created for a recent guest designing position for 7 Dots Studio. It depicts a picture of my daughter walking though tall, dry marsh.
I've had this 11" Viney Page Frame for a while and have been trying to incorporate it as a whole frame on a layout. However I finally decided to cut the vines out and use them as separate pieces on my page. I wanted to mimic the marsh from the picture and I layered the vines it over some stamped shrubs.
To get the texture on the vines, I used some Sandy Stone Texturez and then sprayed it with red Shimmerz spray ink.
This is how the frame looked before I cut it:
