It's Laura here today with a fun and easy challenge for you all. I am a sucker for stars. Perhaps it boils down to being a mom to all boys, but I can never get enough of them, or have enough on my projects.
I made this layout using lots of goodies from the Treasure Map line which is definitely in my Top 3 favourite lines ever by October Afternoon. I. just. love. it. :)
My printer is still broken, so no journaling on this one, yet. For now I write all my journaling on a post-it note, and keep it on the page. Then when my husband eventually gets around to fixing it I can remember exactly what I wanted to say.
Every year on Canada Day we get the family together with all the cousins and have a glorious beach day. This is just one photo from the day. Because I have SO many I will probably just print a bunch of them and put them in photo protectors beside this page and the few others I will make. I just love mixing entire pages of photos in with my scrapbook pages.
I think this ship sticker is so cute, and I had fun dressing it up. Once adhered to the page with foam adhesive for added dimension, I added glossy accents over the red parts of the sail. Then I used some tiny micro beads and shook them over while it was still wet. It really gives a fun texture to the page.
Speaking of texture, I used a star embossing folder on some white card stock and added a large square of that to the page. I can't get enough of dry embossing!
I also added some more Glossy Accents over the anchor sticker below.
So all in all on this page, there are stars on the patterned paper, card stock, tin pin, label sticker, some stamped stars, and even some tiny star sequins. Phewf! That was a lot of stars, but I think they all went well together in the end.
Are you feeling starry eyed? If you do feel inspired to get crafty, please share your projects in our Flickr group, and use the hashtag #octoberafternoon on other social media platforms so we can see all your awesome designs!
I hope you all have a great day!
