Star




Today I have for you another project that I finished while at the coast with my friends.
This chipboard start is a new CTMH product. It comes white, and it has a hole
in the back to hang it on the wall. When I first saw it at Convention, I thought that
it looked a little country, and the new Dakota paper pack was a perfect fit. 

I had trouble printing a template, so I got a piece of printer paper, and traced
one of the points of the star to make a template. Once I got all of the paper marked
and cut out, I sanded the edges to distress them a little, then used my tombow 
adhesive to adhere the paper to the star, using a little liquid glass at the tips.

I then inked the high points of the star with Pacifica Ink, to help blend the tops of the star "arms"
(not sure what else to call them).I decided that I needed something in the valley's of the "arms", so I twisted 
white and chocolate waxy flax to make them look like rope, and glued them down with liquid glass. 
To finish the look, I found a blue button in my stash of retired CTMH stuff, and threaded it with the twisted 
waxy flax and tied it in a bow. I glued that down with liquid glass as well.

I thought it could use a little something else, so I randomly placed bitty sparkles on the "arms" to bling 
it up a little.
