* AALL & Create: We Are All Stars - Marilyn



Today for my AALL & Create GDT project, I have a journal page to share. It features Marilyn and has a host of stars in the background.

Here is how this journal page came together:

The card was painted using PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Finish paint in Lipstick. 
Using the Saturday Morning stencil, I sponged on Deco Art Fluorescent paint.
Next I heat embossed some of the Scripted Stars in white and stamped Reverse stars using Versafine Claire in Chianti.
I added some gold stamping (using paint) and gold splatters.
Admittedly, the background is a 'hot mess' as this stage :) 

Next I stamped and coloured the two Marilyns and fussy cut them both.
I added # 18 Poet washi tape to ground the girls, along with some words from #6 Crafty Washi tape.

I made a frame from #6 Crafty washi tape. I don't have any of the new was his yet, so I need to go shopping for some.

The finished piece, ready to stick into my art journal:

Stamps: #468 Scripted Stars, #475 Marilyn,  #485 Reverse Stars
Stencil: #118 Saturday Morning
Washi Tape: #6 Crafty and #18 Poets
