"Star team", for Scrapbooking Top 50

Hey there!

I liked the sketch at Scrapbooking Top 50 and decided to give it a go!

No automatic alt text available.

Here is my page....

 
I added a Charms Creations hessian heart to this page, so I can share this page over at Charms this month too!
 
So.... how did I make this page?
 
Recently I had some Colour Shimmer Dusts (by Colour Blast) on a messy mat, for a project I was working on. I had HEAPS of colour left over on the mat. So I took a piece of white cardstock and put it upside down into the leftover colour and smooshed it. All the blues in the background are the result. I left it to dry.
 
Once dry, using a pencil, I drew a star directly onto the background. Because Colour Shimmer Dusts are water based and reactive, I simply took a wet paintbrush and painted the star. So easy!
 
I then decided a touch of pink/purple was needed, so I got some Colour Artist Ink (a new Colour Blast product) in Berry. I painted this on the edges of the star. Again because it is water based, it mixed and reacted with the blues. I also added some splatters.


Here are some close ups.
Here is the Charms heart, with an acetate word on top, and alongside a D-lish Scraps Willow flower and small metal flower.

I used some silver messy thread, another metal flower, as well as a button from my stash. The stars are acrylic and I got them from Corbett Creations.


 
 
Thanks for looking!
