This month I was asked to be a guest designer following my win in October for Picture This!? The challenge was “Shapen Up”…use shapes. Seems fairly simple. I decided on a Star shape and pulled out my new 7dots Studio Writers Block Collection. This collection is totally Amazing. By chance the photo I chose to use is of my daughter holding a star wand (no I didn’t print this photo for the challenge, it was in a pile of pictures I had previously printed it dates back to March of this year). Then I got to work. Here is the layout I created.
There is some stamping in there too and yes they are my Viva Las VegaStamps!. I layered up some of the papers in a stack of my very dodgy looking star. It is hand drawn and you will see on the process video I had a few goes at it.
I layered up lots of texture. There is punchinella, sheet music, gauze, a charms creation heart (that I stamped with the same VLVS! as the background. and I used some millinery netting, thread and wire for even more texture.
Here are a few more close ups:
Oh and of course, for added texture there is Colour Blast Colour Paste in STEEL!
