Kraft plus - October challenge

I missed the Triangular challenge last month but this month I couldn't say no!!

"Inspired by Nature"

Okay, I've been a little tricky with my 'feather' and 'other natural item'...
The skeleton leaf reminds me of a Feather, and it is originally a real leaf!

I purchased a packet of these Kraft 12x12 die cut pages, this one adhered onto Black - the bottom half has been sprayed with various shades of green inc Kaisercraft 'Lime', Lindy's Stamp Gang, Heidi Swapp and Colour Bloom too! Before it had a chance to dry (I know, patience is a virtue!) I smeared some Gel Medium and sprinkled the sequins.
The cute photo of our son Tim (Preschool pic,) has been mounted on a piece of Maja Designs (difficult to see but it has leaves all over it) - can you see the 3 jewelled beetles, they were snipped off a necklace... bought especially to do that!! Title is a raw Kaisercraft wood flourish - there is a little florists wire and Prima wire which are bent to look a little grassy?

Tim loved insects from a young age and would spend hours in the yard searching for them - I remember one day finding a 2l ice cream container and the entire base was filled with the most amazing coloured jewel beetles!!
