Shabby Wall Hanging

So, I finished this project this morning.  But, photographing it was difficult.  I either had too much light, or not enough.  So, I went with the black backdrop in my photo-tent.

I used pattern paper from 4 different collections, which is four different companies.  The largest pattern paper is from a romantic pattern paper collection: The Primrose by DCWV.  The text paper is: A Night at the Theater, from Melissa Frances. The dictionary pages is from Stampin' Up!, and the blue polka dot paper is from the collection: Sky's the Limit, by My Mind's Eye.
I used only one stamp:  Love Lives Here, by Paper Trey Ink.  The sentiment is: Home, is where the heart is.
The house is stamped onto a beige card stock and heat embossed in white.  I machine stitched the house to a cut piece of cream felt by Paper Trey Ink.  I adhered the felt to a piece of blue polka dot paper from   .  I added a white resin frame that I sponged some kraft ink on the raised areas to show some detail.
I added a half doily to the left side of the frame.  I added a material piece to the right side of the frame.  I  used some tulle trim from Melissa Frances (GN580), a tea stained lace trim and some white crinkled seam binding from Tim Holtz.  I ran the three layers through my sewing machine to add some stitching.  I added a multi-loop bow made with the white crinkled seam binding, and held the bow together with a pearl and rhinestone broach by Melissa Frances (BR005).
I used white paper blossoms for the floral cluster.  I sprayed them with a Tattered Angels spray: Burnt Red.  I brushed on some picket fence distress paint and dazzling diamond glitter.  I cut some leaf shapes from the dictionary page and distressed the edges with the paint and glitter.  I added two tiny blue blossoms, that were distressed the same way.
I tucked in a few buttons, a collection of clear sequins, a trio of pearls, a linen banner piece, a tiny bottle cap, and a heart bingo piece.  This wall plaque, is clipped to a vintage inspired hanger.
