As soon as I saw the star themed papers in the new Mother Goose paper line by Graphic 45, I knew I would have to make something with that theme. I have been fascinated with the night sky ever since I was a youngster.
I finally caved and used one of the lovely door knobs that Graphic 45 makes for their staples line. It was hard to use, but I think it fits the piece nicely. Of course to add a little age, I brushed on some patina gilders paste.
In order to achieve dimension and depth, I mounted my focal on some foam I had on hand. Lots and lots of Petaloo flowers were used too. When I am making something like this, I will root through my stuff and pull everything I can in the intended palate so I have lots to choose from as I create.
Here is another look closer inside. It is hard to see, but I did use a glitter pen over all the letters that frame out this project.
Another trick I used in this project was to add lots of ink to tone down the colors. The yellow was just too bright for my taste, so I used faded jeans distress ink to change the hue and edge my fussy cut flowers.
I hope you enjoyed this fun little project. I know I enjoyed reminiscing about how often I used to wish upon stars and I have been inspired to do so again.
