I was inspired by the gold stars, so I used the free PI star background cut file and painted it with gold acrylic paint mixed with gold glitter glue. It added just enough sparkle!
A few close ups of the mixed media cut file process. The gold paint was shimmery, but muted. The gold glitter glue added the littles shimmers of glitter bits. This was a good contrast against the darker polka dots Hazelwood paper.
I loved my son's silly glasses pictures from summer. They worked with this star theme and I wanted to use one canoe two's AC Hazelwood collection. I was all about using the gold foam Thickers and the gold phrase Thickers from Hazelwood.
Check out the gorgeous gold sequins from the December Swag Bag! I added several wavy rows of stitching to adhere the cut file down and to create a subtle frame around the layout. I used foam dots to raise up the photos and I matted them with vellum to help them not get lost against the sea of stars.
