This fortnights challenge over at the Studio is to use stars, I love stars as an embellishment as you can use them on most pages, they are neither girly or bogey, young or old - just a great all rounder. I used some Studio Calico papers that were sent to me by Jennifer Grace for winning her card challenge on her Frosty Festivities weekend - you can still go and check it out for inspiration if you want - here is a link to the start of the posts.
I cut some strips of paper that were just slightly bigger than my star die (cuttlebug set of 4 different sized dies). I inked and backed a few of the stars and then stuck them on my page, I also hung some of the stars from the top of the page and under the photo adding lines of black stitching. With my photo on I started to layer my embellishments. I used a Studio Calico pocket for my journalling and added washi tape, twine and a wood veneer star to this. I then created a little clustered embellishment using some of the sticker Christmas trees and a Tando chipboard tree which I inked green and then sprinkled with gold embossing powder, some more of the Studio Calico ephemera pack in the way of the year and a button. The final touch was a few sequins.
