My Other Creations: Collaged Star

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is Lucky Stars.  I found a nifty 3D paper mached star that I gesso'd and decorated with a "Hope On" sentiment.


I found a cardboard paper mache star in my stash and went to town with the Gesso.  Once that dried, I glued on some trellis shapes and inked it with Distress Inks.  I added swirls and stars and a sentiments and wah-la!



Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:

  6. This is so cheerful... What a great uplifting little piece. It is the physical incarnation of that feeling of encouragement. The (radical) star die gives it a bursting feeling, too. Like it's putting out positivity!

  12. Andrea, this is gloriously full of color! I think your star is celebrating a universe of color. I like how your paper mache star is fairly simple, and then the top is just bursting with juicy color layers!
