Glue Mystic Garden dark pink patterned paper on the bottom of the matting so 3/4" of the paper extends from the bottom, trimming sides evenly with the matting. Ink the edges black. Add Songbird Say It in Crystals and pink glitter ribbon across the bottom of the photo and matting as shown. Glue the matted photo on the right side of the page, overlapping the inked paper doily as shown. Write or computer print journaling on Mystic Garden light blue textured paper and trim to rectangles. Ink the edges black and mat on Mystic Garden dark pink patterned paper with 1/8” borders. Ink edges black.

Use your finger to color the Foiled Fancies birds and dragonfly with Green Yellow and Steel Blue Inka-Gold. Color the 2 butterflies and swirl with Rose Quartz and a touch of Lava Red Inka-Gold. Let dry. Use a cosmetic sponge to ink the edges of each piece with black ink. Add remaining ribbons and decorate the Foiled Fancies with flowers/rhinestones from the remaining Say It In Crystals.
