You are a Star

I had a go at an inky LO of my eldest, this is shot from a while back when he met up with his cousins and played in the local woods.  He is a star - he is thoughtful and considerate, he looks after his younger cousins really well, he always wants to do what is right (even if he is cross about and doing it he needs to do the right thing for himself as much as everyone else).  So on that basis the LO has quite a lot of stars on it - I die cut them using a cuttlebug die and then lightly attached them to the page and spritzed with cosmic shimmer mist, and I flicked a few drops over too, then I added some gesso stars too, using the same templates and spreading gesso over them.  Lastly I stitched around a few too.  

The papers are prima's pixie glen range, which are soft blues and pinks - they have a patterned side but on the other are smaller 6 by 6 squares and journal blocks and strips, so I cut out several pieces from the B side.  I inked and ruffled the pieces, made a fan folded strip of paper and punched some....and did a laced section.  The flowers I made using the rose tutorial out of some of the mulberry printed papers in the range, the chipboard swirl is by tando and I ruffley painted it with white acrylic.  I also used some fabric resist pieces again from prima - the bird, clock and heart and inked them with distress ink.  I also tucked in a pin and a metal frame.  The alphabet is an authentique mini and some more of my pink paislee distressables - I'm loving them at the moment as you can make them any colour you like, I inked it darker at the bottom just to try a different effect with them.  Finally I added some little bits of liquid pearl and some mini star buttons, lace and crystal decorations of my sisters wedding cake!
