Counting Stars

Hi everyone! I would like to share my second project for the challenge at 7 Dots Studio featuring "Magic and wonder." I just love their papers and can't wait to check out their 3 new lines! It is hard to find them locally so I must by them online.  For this 6X8 canvas I have used a piece of paper from the "messy head" collection, under the chipboard tree with the stars.  I am lately enjoying making whimsical pages and canvases, and I really enjoyed this challenge! 

I used lace and Lindy's Stamp gang sprays, along with some mesh tape, fussy cut images, cheese cloth, stamping and flowers from Manor House.  For the chippy, it started out magenta, then I put Ferro paste, didn't like the way it looked so I gessoed it then crackled painted it and added some purple Inka Gold.  It went through a lot! Then I glued some wooden stars on it and ran over them with the Inka Gold as well.  

Thank you for visiting, I would love for you to leave a comment :)
