Back to Basics - 7 years old

I love the grab bags with their mix of different shapes on a theme...and the stars are one of my favourites, I could quite happily fit several of them on any page or project.  For this page I decided to paint them; I started by covering them in white acrylic and once dry added a thick layer of yellow acrylic.  Whilst the yellow paint was still wet I sprinkled on some fine clear glitter just to add a little sparkle to the proceedings as it is a birthday page.  The stars help frame my photo and I stuck them around the edge of my stitched circle.

The photo is obviously a 7th birthday one - I'm not sure how the reflection of the candles got picked up in his hair but I really like it.

What a great layout... love the bright colours in the midst of a dark sky - like the face illuminated by the candles in a darkened room - so well thought out!
