Happy Thursday everyone! The June kit Aquarelle has a lot of floral prints in it, however, there are also a lot of graphics and some beautiful shades of teal and aqua that lend themselves well to pages that aren’t too “flowery”.
I had this photo of my kids dressed up for a special day at their school called Red Carpet Day, and I thought that I would bring in a bunch of stars to go along with the theme.
I began by adding some gesso to my background and used some red, pink, coral, and sea foam mists using the packaging technique. Then I used one of the cut files from the store and created a “stencil” to spray gold mist through.
Then I fussy cut out some hand drawn stars from some of the patterned papers. I also used the fabric star that comes in the kit and sprayed it with gold mist, too. I went around the edge of the star with gold thread. The rose gold stars from the alpha sheet were the perfect touch of sparkle, too!
Finally, I just added some layers behind my photo, a few bits from the cut apart sheets, and the acrylic stars that come in the kit as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
