Our Shining Stars....

**Hi there**

I wanted to share with you another canvas I made....this time of my boys:) I have a little spot next to our bookshelf in the living room where I am going to hang it. Once again it is just full of layers upon layers of paint, glimmermist, inks, material, bandage wrap, paper and other embellishments. I have never really counted the layers on my works but I dare say in everything I do there is at least 9 or more! I started off using a star shape for a mask and just went crazy with glimmermist......the fun part about this is it doesn't matter if you stuff up you just add another layer of something else!!

I have used Such Sweet Tierney Chipboard buttons on here, some Prima felt stars and some clear Heidi Swapp stars which I added alcohol ink too:)

The cute little owl is a chipboard piece from My Mind's Eye.

And a galaxy star vine from Prima.

So this is my staples lately.....all my paints, mists and inks....yummo! I love all this colour.

Beautiful days here at the moment....I think its time to get into the pool:):)
Have a fabbo day xo
