Wish upon a star!
ey there! Are you ready for a new beginning? Spring is just the season…leave the worries behind get out and smell the roses! Well they are not quite blooming yet hehe..but you get the idea! Life can be overwhelming sometimes and does not do any good for us to get soooo entangled trying to solve all issues at once. So get out there re-energize and I bet that “ Monica closet” will be neat in no time after a break!!!!
So I am trying to follow my line and I made a project today just because I wanted to! Well I have a nice collection of embossing folders that I am trying to put to a good use. I really like making projects that use these simple beauties. Since the idea is for a new beginning I decide to use stars as the main focus of the project…Shine! Yeap that is what we all need to keep in mind!
To start the project I had the perfect set of stamps. Gilli elements “Start set” (This is a set with 3 starts in rubber stamps). Since I wanted the color of the star to pop I decided to use a lighter ink to stamp…memento london fog was just perfect for that. You can see the stamped the lines, but the light gray blend in quite well with the marker colors. This color scheme was based on the Touch twin challenge…when I saw I just fell for it! I am not a huge fan of orange but for some reason, in this project orange is making me happy!! LOL. Well back to the project. After coloring my starts I cut the stamped/colored image and added a thick coat of glossy accents from ranger. While my starts were drying I stained my ribbon with the matching copic color. I added the respective twine and glued the star with it’s respective bow. The embossed bases are from LifeStyle (form Quickcutz) and Sizzix. The “orbit”, that is how I call lol, is a punch from EK. This time I picked Ice Stickled to use as bling. The chunky glitter added a bling plus a super cool texture to the embellishment.
Since in my sky the stars hang from bows. My backdrop is “faux stitched” in space. . The embellishment I wrote and cut by hand. To add a little touch and tie the sentiment to the whole project I used the left overs twine (that was used on the top).
I had a good time making a project that helped me unwind and remind me that sometimes its okay to let it go. Stop and re –energize and day dream! We are all just humans… Betty Davis said it all..”Why wish for the moon when we can have all the stars..” Something like that LOL…Now it is your turn to wish…upon your star!!!!
