The first photo shows the front of the chest with all collage components in place.
The second photo shows the right side of the chest in progress and the third is the same side with most all the components in place. Ready to decoupage.
The fourth photo is the back of said chest with components taped in place and the fifth is the completed decoupaged back of my Faerie Chest!

The in-between works like this: once I have all the components taped in place I use my digital camera to take a photo for reference. Then I choose a manageable section and remove the pieces. Here I make a concerted effort to take note of what things overlap each other and where and which should be applied first. From here I am just playing by ear-the key, I suppose, is simply to keep your creation balanced. Nothing to it!
