Twinkle Little Star with Sandi Clarkson

Hello, 13 Arts fans! 
Sandi here with you today sharing a layout featuring my newest little grandson. 
I thought that the new "Under the Stars" collection would be perfect for a newborn project. 


Firstly, I chose my papers and embellishments, then applied clear gesso to everything. The base papers are Constellation Paper, Under the Stars and Moonlight Paper, Under the Stars.
When that was dry I used the Doilies Mask/Stencil to add texture to my background. It was my first time using it and think it is so pretty ... perfect for a wee baby.

As that was drying, I painted my chipboard (Under the Stars Chipboard Set, 12x12) using the Ayeeda paints: Ayeeda Paint, Matte WhiteAyeeda Paint, Vivid Yellow and Yellow Amber Water Ink. I also used the Matte White to paint my flowers (Exotic flowers, 12 pcs.). They are more ivory in reality and I wanted them to be more pure white.



I did some fussing cutting of a few embellishments from the Under the Stars Elements paper A4 and also included some designs from the Under the Stars Ephemera Pack.




For blending and subtlety, I randomly dabbed 13 Arts white gesso much like you would do stamping. I was going for a more delicate look.



Before adhering my focal area, I layering in some Ecru Sisal for texture.




My flowers were mostly layered under my composition but peek out just a bit.

The final touch was splattering some of my Navy Blue Splash Water Ink all around the focal area. I had planned to use it more boldly over my stenciled area but decided that I was liking the soft blue and white project with just the pop of yellow.

I am so glad that you dropped by today.
I've included some links to the products used below:
