La Belle Vie Star

This is one of the new Close To My Heart My Creations items.  I loved that we have such a large star to decorate!  It is 12", flat on the back, and hangs beautifully on a wall.


I pulled out some La Belle Vie (it's never far away...!)  The first thing I did was sponge all the edges with Slate ink.  After I was all done, I thought that my brayer would have worked nicely, too.

I cut the flowers with the Artiste cartridge at 2-3/4" and before I rolled them , I sponged the edges with Slate ink. Even thought this project uses dark colors, it still has a very romantic feeling to it, so it will go on our bedroom wall.

I hope that you are having a blessed holiday weekend!  I so appreciate that you took the time to visit!!

I love how you took an angular sharp edged star and made it feel soft and romantic!

Gorgeous! How did you know what size to cut the paper to cover the star? Or do one of our cartridges cut it for you?
