Hello everyone,today I have a sweet little plate to share with you all as my design team project for
At the start of the design team term, Susan gave us a few themes to think about and the one that struck a cord and memory with me was. . .
Wish Upon A Star
Remember as a child looking up and wishing on the first star you saw at night.
This takes me back to walking home with my Mum, sister and Uncle James on many a dark night with the stars shinning bright.
Uncle James would point out the 7 sisters, the plough and many more, filling me with awe and wonder.
But the "over- riding" emotion of my memories is FAMILY and LOVE hence the house for home,
the words . . .
Home Is Where You Hang Your Heart
and the stars are for the wishes that I wish for my family at the dawn of a New Year . . .
Love, health, peace, happiness and never stop reaching for your dreams.
Wishes do come true!
Soooo how did I pop it together?
Just take some white Air dry clay, roll it out and use a plate to cut around making your circle.
Take The Happy Homestead stamp from Unity stamps co branded with Susan K Weckesser . . . it is huuuge and did I mention how much I loooove it . . . and stamp on the clay.
Now for the fun part . . . colouring!
So what did I use . . . no not paints . . . Tim Holtz Distress ink pads for vibrant colour.
Smooched some ink onto my craft mat, spray with water and then painted to my hearts content.
To add a little dimension I re-stamped the image, cut out the door and made some grass, flowers and a little brick path from the clay, just attach with a little water.
To add the glimmer I sprayed some Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in Pearl along with Clear snap Smooch Glitz in Frost for sparkle.
For the stars and wording I used a Sakura pen touch Metallic silver fine point marker.
All that I have left to do is protect it all with a layer of clear varnish.
So do you still wish upon a star?
We would love to hear if you do and then go on to create a piece of art,just stop by the blog and leave a comment.
Well that`s all from me today
