Home Decor Star featuring 13 Arts Christmas Stories

Hello, 13 Arts fans! 

Sandi here with you today sharing a Home Decor Star from Creative Embellishments that I altered with my 13 Arts Christmas Stories papers along with a few other items. 

The first thing I did was to trace and cut out the star on my gorgeous Christmas Stories paper and then adhered it to my birch wood piece. 

When that was good and dry, I covered the paper with 13 Arts clear gesso. 

I've used the Circle of Stars Stencil and modeling paste to provide some texture. Then for a colorant, I've applied some of the Coral watercolor from the 16 pan Watercolor Set. 

My sweet photo is of the granddaughters during a rare winter storm earlier this year, 

I also fussy cut a few embellishments from the paper collection as well as from the older Dreamland collection. 

To provide height under the photo I used corrugated cardboard to make room for adding my florals from 49 and Market. These are the Cranberry Rustic Bouquet. The white ball twigs and the pine cones are from the 13 Arts Store. 

I alos added in some pearl adornments from the now defunct Petaloo. My Petaloo stash is getting really low. 

To add shimmer, I've applied Old Silver Glitter Ink form 13 Arts. 

For a sentiment, I used one of my fussy cut elements. 

Looks like they are having fun, huh? 
Yes, for this part of Texas we get very little snow, so the kids soak it up! 

I just kept adding until I was out of room, haha! 

Thanks for coming by today! 
I always appreciate anyone reading the blog. 

2022 is around the corner! 
Happy New Year!
