Oh boy! I had fun with the metallic shiny paints and mists on this one!!
I'm trying to do some layouts that are not on a white background. (Quite why I decided to go for a black sheet instead of a patterned sheet I can't tell you...) Any way, black sheet on my desk - lots of staring - umming and aahing... When I get to this stage there are two things I can do. 1 - give up and do something else. 2 - find a layout that inspires me and CASE it! I turned to my Sparklers team mate Yulia, and this is what happened.
I used a combination of paints, Heidi shines, spray mists and Shimmerz paints to achieve my background. Whilst I had the mists out I dyed a doily too.
I coloured some wood veneer stars in a bright blue. When matting my photo I wanted some more of this blue. Not having anything in my stash that matched I painted some card with the mist so it matched perfectly.
I started adding a few sequins from the Glass Slipper mix, then some stars from Sunny Smiles... then some stars from Fairytale 2... and then a few blue ones from Magical Ocean. I found it hard to stop!!
But I was having fun, and that is what it is all about!
Thanks for stopping by today!
