I got a sheet of waxed paper and some brown tissue paper. I scrunched the tissue and ripped and stretched and shaped until I had a basic tree. then I smeared Gel Medium on it with my fingers and just shaped it till it made me happy. I let it dry overnight on the waxed paper. Then I GENTLY peeled it off and glued it to the background. I touched it here and there with a metallic paint, just to give it more depth.
The Fairy is a copy I touched lightly with some chalks. I didn't want too much color because I didn't want to distract from the beautiful background. I glued some Cicada wings on her and glittered them. I have a small box of them I pulled off dead Cicadas. I save everything!! I cut a couple of small squares of foam board and glued them to her back and then glued her so she's sitting on the branch. Oh, I mounted her on cardstock before I cut her out. That's all there is to it.
