When I first saw this paper from Fancy Pants, I fell in love. It's so cute and darling! But I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it...until now.
I realised as soon as I saw the "Wish Upon A Star" title card, that I had the perfect title for a layout: "When You Wish Upon A Star"...and so this layout was created.
I had lots of fun with my Imaginarium Chipboard. I painted the branches with Twinkling H2O's. And left them as they were. I painted the stars and alphas with Twinkling H2O's, then covered the stars with Kindy Glitz, and the alphas with Dimensional Magic. I'm not sure why, but every time I cover Twinkling H2O's with Dimensional Magic, it crackles as it dries, and I just love this effect.
I will let you in on a little secret - these colours were not easy for me to work with, lol! I struggled at first until I found my rhythm. Or maybe it was just that my mojo was a little slow to kick in? But I am happy with the end result - I challenged myself and succeeded. And no, I don't always succeed, lol!!!
I want my girls to realise how much I did wish for them. They were wanted. Not accidents. Not second thoughts. But well and truly wanted, and wished for.
Thank-you for stopping by today. I hope I have inspired you to challenge yourself, to grow as an artist, and try something new. It's not always as scary as it seems... :-)
