Step 17 (creating a tree house in the scene)

After preparing the objects of the tree house, in this step, we will combine the objects to be manipulate into a single tree house. Start by adding the stem to the main document. Scale the size and place it where needed.
step17a
Then, add the shape to the document. Place it on the top of the stem. As usual, scale the size accordingly. Mask some unneeded part of the stem.
step17b
Then, add the door to the tree house. Give this door layer a layer style by going to Layer > Layer Styles > Bevel and Emboss:
step17c
Finally, to make the tree house more decorative, add some vines to it. Select all the tree house layers and hit Ctrl+G to group them. Here is the result should be:
step17d

Step 18 (adding highlight on the tree house)

To define the casted light, we will also add some highlight on the tree house. Please refer back to the previous step 15 on how to do this purpose.
step18

Step 19 (adding distant tree and stone houses)

In this step, we will add more tree houses to fill the distant space of scene composition. To do this, just duplicate the main tree house group layer three times. Scale the size of the duplications accordingly and place them in the space area behind the main stone house image. Vary the opacity of each duplication between 9-35% depending on the distance and depth they should convey. For example, the smallest tree house is set to 9% opacity at normal blending, the middle one is 15% and 38% for the biggest one. Mask each group a bit where needed:
step19a
Do similar way to add more distant stone houses:
step19b

Step 20 (adding farthest background)

There is still much empty space behind the main stone house. In this step, we will ‘enrich’ the composition of the scene by adding more background objects to fill the empty space. To achieve this purpose, we will use the same image used as the foreground in the previous steps. Duplicate (Ctrl+J) the layer containing the image used as the foreground. We can choose any layer from one of the four foreground groups previously made. After choosing and duplicating the layer, scale the size and place the duplication layer above the gradient background layer in the layer panel. Hide some parts of the layer by masking it and set its blending to normal at 65% opacity.
step20a
Add another background on the other side. For the second background object, set its blending to normal at 30% opacity:
step20b

Step 21 (adding more objects)

We have almost finished the composition. In this step, we will add more nuance of fairy atmosphere by adding flowers to the scene. As we can see in the screenshot, we can figure out where I added the flowers. However, optionally we can add the flowers somewhere which is not exactly the same place where I put them.
step21a
Now add fairies and butterflies. Give some highlight on the fairies the same way as we have add ones to the other objects. For the butterflies, vary their blending opacity to 45-60%.
step21b

Step 22 (adding light)

Create a new layer on which we will paint some soft white light under the faries feet. Activate the Brush Tool again. Choose a very soft round brush. Set its opacity to 10-20%. Paint some white light under the faries feet.
step22a
Create another new layer. Fill this new layer with black. Set its blending to color dodge at 100% opacity. On this layer, paint white spots on the foreground areas. Use a very soft round brush with size varied to 1-5. Set the opacity of the brush at 60-100%. Still on this layer, paint some light on the door of the main stone house. To paint the light on the door, set opacity of the brush to 5-10 and stoke the brush repeatedly on the door and stair. Well, this is the layer should look like in the normal blending at 100% opacity:
