I Love You to the Stars and Back

Hello everyone! Hopefully you were able to check out all of the wonderful projects in the recent blog hop between Creative Inspirations Paint and Genuinely Jane Studios! If you didn't you can go back here and see all of the links to the projects on the hop. 

For my project today, I used a page from a GJS Bracket Album to make this star covered hanging using some CI Paints and Deliquesce embossing powders. 

Black gesso was used to cover the front and back of the wood bracket before adding modeling paste using a CW star stencil. After the modeling paste dried, I painted the stars with Antique Silver CI Paint and embossed around the edges of them with Deliquesce Platinum embossing powder. 

The sentiment was made by painting cardstock with more black gesso and using a stencil and some yellow paint for the sentiment. After it dried, I embossed around each letter using Fine Black Deliquesce embossing powder and then used some Buttercup CI Paint over them for some shimmer. I wanted hearts on this since it was a love theme, so I painted some Studio Calico wooden hearts with Tickled Pink paint and added them in various placed. The sign was tied off with black ric-rac ribbon. 

As you can see there is a lot of shimmer to this project! My daughter fell in love with it when she saw it, so I have it hanging in her room. 

Below are the CI products used on my project. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the Inspired By: Father's Day Challenge going on and have a wonderful day!!!
