My last Scrapaholix project.
I had a piece of one of the papers left from my first project and I wanted to use that as the inspiration to this second project.
It was a warm white with little black hearts so I decided on a romantic love theme. One of the little cut out quotes on another of the papers was “love you to the moon and back” so this loving couple sitting on a star seemed to be a good fit. They look liked actors from a silent movie to me so I’ve combined the moon, movie, and stars theme to make a sparkly glitzy 1920s/ 1930s style layout.
I cut out extra flowers and a moon using the pink spotty Bazzill included in the kit (I loved that spotty card).
As I knew I wanted to do a spot of mixed media on the paper and card, I made sure to give all of it a couple of coats of clear gesso. This protects the paper from getting too soaked and still allows paint to flow when sprayed with water.
There was a cut out film strip already included on one of the papers in the kit so I used that as well as some extra film reel from Tim Holtz.
I’ve added glitter and lots of little stars (stars from Tim Holtz Idea-ology) to keep the glitzy movie star theme going.
I’m afraid it was raining when I tried to take the photos so there are raindrops and smudged ink blots showing. Just ignore those lol.
Die cutting using dies from my personal supplies.
