Besties by Paige Evans

Saturday, August 1, 2020

I started by having my Silhouette Cameo DRAW (not cut) my Concentric Circles cut file with a pencil on light blue textured cardstock. Then I splattered watered down white acrylic paint with a toothbrush for a finer mist centered on the bottom left side and the thinning out towards the edges.
While the paint was drying, I grabbed Paper 24 from my Bloom Street collection and punched small stars from all of the different colors. I grabbed my pile of 12x12 patterned paper scraps from Bloom Street and used a larger punch to make a bunch more stars. I placed all of the stars over the drawn concentric lines, adhered them in place lightly, and then machine stitched over them to keep them in place permanently, using a running stitch and white thread. By only stitching through the middles of the stars, the points are free to bend up and create dimension and shadows.
I added a 3x4" photo to the bottom left corner and created a custom title with the colorful Puffy Word Stickers - I keep one sheet for using the words as is and I use another sheet as an alphabet to pick and choose the letters. I journaled with a blue pen below the title.
To finish, I scattered adhesive jewels from the Mixed Embellishments tone-on-tone over some of the stars to add sparkle & shine and little bits of interest. I hope you are inspired to pick up my Bloom Street collection and Concentric Circles cut file to create this page and be sure to check out the Summer 2020 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine for TONS of great ideas!
