Paperbabe Challenge #82 ~ THEME *STARS*

Hello Creative Friends

It's Friday and time for another Paperbabe Challenge.
This fortnight the theme is *STARS* we'd love you to share
your *STAR* creations over HERE on the Paperbabe Stamps blog.

There's a prize for one Lucky random winner so pop on over, 
read those rules and see what the Team have created just for you.

Here's my take on the Theme *STARS*

On to an A3 Journal page I traced around the Standard Torso and Fairy Wings 
templates, lay down lots of colourful Neocolor II's and spritzed with water 
to help those colours mix, move and merge around the page.

The Head template was traced, features stamped, coloured and cut out.
The Curly Hair and fringe template has also been traced separately 
ready to be fussy cut.

Stamping the Doodle *STARS* onto the background I rubbed crystal stickles glitter glue 
over the page with my finger to add some sparkle. I then used the Curly Fringe Hair
template to manipulate exactly where I wanted the hair to be before tracing around.

Those traced areas of hair behind the face were painted with white Gesso
and a hairline drawn onto the face making it easier to position those hair strands.

With those hair strands cut out and glued into place 
the pointy ear is lifted up peeping out from the hair.

Paper napkins have been collaged to the base of the page with 
extra's backed onto card and layered on top to add dimension.

Drawing in those finer details of my Fantasy Fairy using Neocolor II's, 
a fussy cut crown (included in the Fairy Wings template) along with 
beaded string adds that final detail.

I really enjoyed losing myself creating this piece and with limited craft supplies
at the moment due to a little home improvement it really does set those
creative cogs in motion.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead
and Thank you so much for visiting.
