Look At The Stars {12x12 by Jess}

Today we've got one heck of a stunner from Creative Team member Jess Mutty!!
Most of the time I start a new project and grab a bunch of stuff somewhat randomly with no real plan. But every once in a while a little seed of an idea will plant in my mind and grow, little by little, idea by idea, into a vision.  This page was one of those seeds.

I've had the photo since last Christmas and then DeeDee created that lamp post and I fell in love and just knew.  Then came the amazing tiny star confetti and it had to be done.  So I took a deep breath and plunged in, doubting that the reality would live up to the vision, and it turned out to be one of those magical, in-the-zone layouts that just flows and works.  

I painted, pearl-dusted, and distressed the background paper, layered the photo area with cardboard, punchinella, mistable paper, and lace and added the painted lamp post on top. I backed the lamp part with paper and filled the holes in with silver glitter glue.  

I also used the smallest chevron lines from the chevron mask in several places and a couple of the flair from the Wild West Flair set.  

The title is, of course, drawn from the song Yellow by Coldplay.  And the page would not be complete without a whole bunch of teeny stars.  I love them so much!
