Challenge: Paper Cutz Challenge #106 – Wish Upon a Star
I started with Julie’s layout in general and went from there. I ended up with the three pictures on the bottom and liked that but I struggled as I worked on the top of the page. I had a crown that I kept playing with but it didn’t make the final cut. I finally came up with the glitter stars and LOVE how they turned out! The large star is actually multiple ones that are layered together. I added the Glitter Glitz and it dried as one piece on the top and I was able to create the one large star that I wanted! I’m so glad it turned out because I used almost my whole bottle! The lamp on my desk gets quite hot so I set it under there and left it for a couple hours to dry. That’s my best note as far as how long it took to dry. Another option would have been to use my heat gun. You may notice I also added small glitter dots to the background paper.
One thing I did with this layout was combined new product with my old stash to create something I like. I remember when this paper first came out, I thought it was so cute. Today I had a hard time making it into something I liked with the matching stickers. By adding the border (new product) and glitter I was able to create a page that I was happy with and still use up some of my old stash.
Below is a closeup of the stars because they are so pretty! The smaller one is just a cardstock diecut attached with 3D foam tape
