Dance with fairies and talk to the moon

I got to play in my art journal this week!!!  Can you tell it's been a while?  :)  Not a lot of crafty time this summer and this background has been waiting for me to finish it since the beginning of June, when I first started it with some Dylusions sprays.
Over the Dylusions I stamped some lovely butterflies from Unity Stamp Company's Butterfly Beauty and some flowers from Unity's Insightful Meadows.

 Next I added some gesso onto Unity's Tattered Chicken Wire stamp and stamped the gesso randomly for some texture. 
 I cut some fabric and used a gel medium to adhere it to the page and added a smiling moon sticker from my Halloween collection.
 The girl is from Unity's Reach For the Stars and was stamped onto watercolor paper and colored and adhered with gel medium with a couple pieces of tissue paper under her to soften the stamping in the background.
 I used a few butterfly rub-ons I had in my stash to add some bright spots of color to the pages.
 I had an old card with little fairies on it that I cut out and added glitter to their wings and adhered to the pages.

 I added some gold star gems in the sky and printed the words out from my computer and cut them out, distressed with Antique Linen distress ink and adhered with a gel medium. 

I have never taken this long to do a page from start to finish and am happy to have finally had time to complete it.  I love this quote/sentiment and this page very much reminds me of the dreaminess of childhood and my daughter.
 
I am linking this to Art Journal Everyday as well as Unity's Friends with Flair.
