Here are some close ups.... 
I did some paper layers, using Beauty Abound-BS as the background. I trimmed the outside edges & matted with black cardstock & cut off pieces from the sides did some punch work, glued those pieces onto black cardstock, then did some hand stitching & distressed the edges. I  glued those pieces onto the back ground, gluing the black ripped pieces of the black corrugated paper that I painted with the Lumin Art -Mystique, under the punch work pieces....
I primed all of the chipboard with black gesso, then applied the clear crackle paint onto some of the pieces.  I then played with the Lumin Art colors in the blue & green tones...

I altered the flowers , with painting them with the iridescent colors & using Prills as the flower centers...

I glued on pearls onto the Indian Arrow, & glued on some black netting into the flower cluster, & some Prills-Stop Whining onto the netting

I cut the photo into 4, then matted using, Beauty Abound-BS, Harmony-BS & black cardstock, I also made a circle under the photos , & glued black & green doily's under the circle...
