Love You All the Way to The Moon

Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge this week challenges us to the moon.  I knew that I was going to scrap a page with with my youngest.  One of our favorite nighttime stories is the book "Guess How Much I love you?"   This started a nightly tradition of saying how much we loved each other.

We always tried to top each other and I loved that she came up with all the way to baby Jesus star and back.

I had a fantastic time creating this layout and loved how the page turned out even before I put the words and the photo into my moon.

The background was started with a mix of embossing paste applied over a star stencil.  I let that dry and then came back in with a shimmery gold mist sprayed over the entire surface.  I cut out a large circle to use to trace my moon in with watercolor pencil. I used a waterbrush to soften the edges.

I also cut a series of stars using a variety of dies which I then stamped with script.  I popped some of the stars up and left some layered under.   I added a touch of shadows with a blue watercolor pencil.  I added a mix of sequins in the background.

I printed out the words and cut them up to frame the circle. along with the image which worked in hanging off the edge of the moon.
