Dusty Attic - August challenge

It's August... hooray!!
I think I forgot to link my July challenge, so I am reminding myself !!

This is the

So beautiful.... right?
I searched for Yellow...and shades of lavendar
AND, then this happened...

Debi from "Chipboard Crazy" came to my Workshop Wonders August event and brought some fabulous chipboard designs... she gifted me these beautiful DA designs - how can you not love them!!
I started with the "Decorative Frame #2" - gessoed the lot - and the "Word Pack #17 " - then sprayed them with Tim Holtz Distress spray in 'Seedless Preserves' (let it dry , then spray again, and again - gives you a variegated finish)
I also used this spray and TH 'Fossilized Amber', Heidi Swapp 'Amethyst' and created the drips and a little through the Prima 'Lace' stencil (it's such a delicate design!)
Can you see the fairies legs under the M of the title? It's actually a Prima sheet from 'Fairy Rhymes' collection (Sweet Briar) - initially I was going to have the fairy be the 'Tooth fairy' but...she flew away!!
I picked up a bunch of blooms from "My2Angels" ...and a few from "Tjs Scrappin With Style" and even squeezed a Prima bloom in there too!!

Photo is of Katelyn's reaction when she her FIRST tooth fell out - big grin!
