How gorgeous is this art inspiration piece at ARTastic?

It's a painting by Hilda Rix Nicholas and I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous teal tones.  Then I noticed the book/newspaper, and I knew which photographs I wanted to scrap.

For the vintage style criteria I included a crocheted doily, buttons and vintage book page. I also included teal highlights in my colour scheme:

Graphic 45 Come Away With Me - Cosmopolitan patterned paper
Kaisercraft Crochet Doilie - White 
My Mind's Eye Find Your Wings & Fly layered sticker
American Crafts Geyser cardstock
Echo Park Life is Good - Happy Borders patterned paper
Vintage book paper
Painted buttons
Butterfly die cuts
