Fairy Whispers

This layout was created for Case File 115 at CSI and was so much fun to work with.  I am enjoying their weekly challenges so much that I am renewed in my desire to try new color combinations, learn new ways to journal  and be more adept at scrappy problem solving. Here is the challenge for this week:

After border punching around the top layer of paper, I stamped the area just below where  the masking would later be. Next came the application of  modeling paste over the area where  the birds are sitting on a branch. After the paste dried , paint  and markers were used  to achieve the desired colors. 
In the area where the cut out photo would be, I misted with a pewter colored spray and began painting the chipboard pieces.

Next came the lettering in a way that would look as though it was fairy dust being scattered on the photo.  

Using two sheets of the paper gave me two of everything. The little gnome, fairy and mushrooms had to be fussy cut, and popped up. The wings and crown were crying out for stickles before adhering them to the photo.  

Thanks for taking a peek. Comments are always appreciated!
