"Stay Cool" by Anthea

Hi all again. 
 
How is everyone enjoying winter? It has finally kicked in here with some dreary and rainy days which means some quiet scrappy time for me.  The other day - I opened the blinds wide open (the sun was shining that day) and poured myself a wine and sat down for some well needed scrappy time. 
 
This was one of my creations; I didn't mean to channel my inner summer, but I love how it is so simple yet so bright and fun at the same time.
 
 
I started off by using some texture paste with my favourite D-lish stencil double mounted on circle stencil that I whipped up to make these really cool yellow circles on my page. I dried them in between each one with a heat gun to keep them clean looking.  I must say, the size of the D-lish stencils makes them ideal for double stencil technique - I encourage you to give it a go.
 
 
I then splattered three matching mists all over the page and added some random stamping to mess it all up.  (I couldn't have it too clean looking!)
 
I then added a bright yellow flower and a big vellum star with a resin glitter star from a previous JAP kit as my main cluster. You may notice that I only secured the vellum star with a dot of glue in the middle.  I did that because I like the way the star kind of flares up and creates more texture. 
 
 
I then added some  more vellum stars (that I got in a mini kit) and some sequin stars that came in the same  JAP kit that the big glitter star came from. 
 
To finish, I cut up a mini journal tag to tuck behind the photo to create my title.
 
 
That was it.  Like a said, simple, but I think effective.
 
Hope you enjoy.
 
Hugs
Anthea
