Visual Journey #12

Reach for the STARS

Following last weeks pages that reminded me of the on-line 52 card pickup workshop, I decided to find out more about Stephanie Ackerman and found a 'Documented Life' video she made. I enjoyed watching her creative process and although I didn't follow all of her 18 layers but took alot from the recipe and made it my own. The background is similar to Tim's February tag and the two tags I have made recently here and here.

The stamped circles were all one stamp originally but I cut them into individual ones so I could use them singly. They are now far more versatile and great for projects like this.

I added some washi tapes and hand wrote three quotes around the pages.

I used Tim's faded dots stencil to add some texture .........

..... and die-cut some stars in blue card but finger painted them using DecoArt phthalo blue, cerulean blue and white acrylic paints.

Finally I typed and printed the main quote, cut it up and inked the edges before adding it to the page but also created shadows with a distress marker.

I'm loving coming round to your linked blogs and looking at what you are creating. I often come away with an idea or two stored to use another day. Thanks for sharing with me and each other. Please collect this code and add to your post if you want to share too.
