Webster's Pages ~ Enchanting!

When I saw this paper in the Webster's Pages~ Lullaby Lane~ Deluxe Scrapbook Kit I just fell in love.  I adore fairies especially vintage fairies like the one on this page.

I knew I wanted to really highlight the adorable little fairy and immediately knew that Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint was just the thing.The first thing I did was measure the image, then cut out an egg shape from the Easter 2010 cricut cartridge.   I centered the image in the negative shape and used my exacto knife to cut out the image.  I inked the edges with a little "so saffron" ink and then painted on a liberal amount of Rock Candy Clear crackle paint.

I cut out a scalloped egg (a bit bigger) from the same cartridge, inked the edges and glued the crackled fairy to it.  The whole thing was a bit warped, so before my Fabri-tac (my fav adhesive) dried, I ran it through my Cuttlebug (using plates A,B, &C and a extra piece of cardstock for a shim) and it flattened right out!  Here's a closeup of the crackle effect.

I really love the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and use it every chance I get.  Here I sprayed it on some Prima Leaves (which I ALWAYS have on hand).  It gives them an understated shimmer that I just love.

The printed vine on this sheet is beautiful but I had to give it more dimension with these beautiful Primas, some satin vine and the shimmery prima leaves.  I also put some clear acrylic domes over each of the butter flies to make the come alive!

I welded the title base using Gypsy Font and cut it in white, and the top layer (not welded) in some agua paper.  To make it pop I used Rock Candy Distress Stickles, the perfect finishing touch!
