Starlights Frame

Hello, happy Saturday. Hopefully, lots of you have received your Starlights by now & are busy playing. The response to the new colours has been phenomenal & you can see individual images of all eight colours in this blog post.


Sue made a terrific video about the Starlights............

 I managed to get a little free time & decorated the HOME MDF frame & charm kit with three Starlight colours; Blue, White Gold & Zinober Gold..............


I applied the White Gold Starlight with a paintbrush, rather than a brayer as Sue describes in her video, because I wanted to see the brushstrokes. I painted the back board with black gesso first, then a very thin layer of White Gold - Starlights are semi-translucent & I wanted a slight contrast between the back & the frame.............


When the Gold was dry, I mixed a little water with the Zinober Gold & added splatters, then I applied Blue Starlight through the Leaf Swirl border stencil with a piece of Cut & Dry foam..............


The heart was painted with Firecracker Satin Silkies.

That's it. A really easy project, but I hope it shows just how shimmery, shiny & gorgeous the Starlight paints are.

Have a great weekend.
