Hi there my scrappy friends and welcome to the ScrappingClearly blog this lovely Monday! Melinda here with you today sharing a page I created using (once again!) the very awesome Starshine collection by Shimelle! I just can't help myself, I love it!!
Here is my page
I was VERY inspired by a page shared on You Tube by Lillith Eeckels and had a bunch of stars I had created that I wanted to use up and went with this design! Isn't it fun!
I started by stitching that black circle onto my background after drawing (about in the middle) a circle using an empty paint pallet of the page as a template. I went around about 6-7 times and I LOVE the texture it gives!!
I created my stars by first cutting a half or 3/4 of a full 12x12 piece of white card on my cameo. Next a quick coat of gesso, some stamping with black permanent ink and then COLOUR! I have used some Colour Shimmer Dusts by Colour Blast - these little pots are AMAZING to play with. I have used Candy and I think Cobalt but it may have been Peacock.....
When I stuck them down I just used a little dot of wet adhesive in the middle of each star and love the dimension I have achieved!
I used a couple of layers of papers (namely the Gemini and Hubble) behind my photo and then I have used the Chipboard, Flair, Thickers, Paper Clips and Rub-On pens to embellish. Oh and the background paper is Juno!
I have used one of the clear stickers for the title (I stuck that to some white smooth cardstock and fussy cut) and also a few acetate pieces from the ephemera pack!
Lastly the journalling, the date and some splatters, again using the Colour Shimmer Dusts and a paint brush! Oh, and a hint of the Midnight Colour Shimmer Dust to balance out the black of the stitching, the stamping and also my journalling!
