Little Yellow Bicycle - Fern and Forest

We are All In a Flutter at Little Yellow Bicycle!
The Fern and Forest Girl collection has lots of embellishments with wings.  Sharon Kropp came up with some adorable little fairies for the collection.  I based the fairy on my canvas on hers.
This is a 9x12 Canvas. 
All the colored accents and doodles were done with my Faber-Castell Pens.  Pitt Big Brush Pens for the color accents and a Pitt Artist Pen (bold) for the outlining.
The fairy was pieced using paper from the Fern and Forest collection.  I also used the paper crafting kit to add details.  Her scalloped collar is from a flower that I cut up and tucked under the paper for her head.  The blue ruffle on her dress is a scored and scalloped paper that I tucked under her dress.
After building the base and the fairy, I added glitter accents in her hair, on the leaves, flowers and scattered around the canvas.  The hair was done with paint and just sprinkled while wet.  The polka-dots are Tim Holts Distress paint, also sprinkled while wet.  Finally, the detailing on the leaves and paper flowers was done with a Souffle Pen.  The ink from the pens dry fairly slowly, so you can add glitter while they are still wet.  (It is quicker drying than paint or glue, so you need to work quickly.)
Chipboard accents were added for touches of dimension and layers.  The title piece 'wish' is also from the chipboard package.
I used lots of Clear Cuts, too.  Some of them (starts and bursts) were added with Modpodge and are flat, and some (leaves and butterfly) are attached with glue and are dimensional. 
If you have any questions, be sure to ask!
