Chick Magnet...

Morning all!

Have lots of projects on the go at the moment...I have one to share today, it is one I created for White With One, the challenge is to use white with yellow and stars. We got 3 chicks 2 weeks ago, they weren't yellow when we got them but I thought that the challenge would be perfect for photos of DS posing with a chick, too funny!
I experienced with different papers here again, this time I played with white tissue paper for my main background and inked paper towel from the kitchen, I was inspired by an article in the latest Somerset Workshop magazine! Here are the photos:

The chicken is from Twiddlybitz, and is so cute! I sprayed the raw piece with water and separated the layers at the tail and on the head to make it fluffy, I then added a couple of coats of white gesso.
There is a couple of white tags on the layout, I circled the hole with a piece of rolled paper towel!

Here is a close of the background and title, you can also see a home made mini peg covered with paper holding a stamped word!

Here a closie of my home made star (made with a template) to create those beautiful textured stars I took a sheet of paper towel and inked with "Scattered Straw" distress ink then sprayed with water to spread the colour over the piece of paper towel. I then cut a star out of scrap paper and glued tissue star over it.
Another detail is the flower centre made of rolled yellow twine :) I also made little stars with 3 staples.
There are plenty of punched circles around the page as per usual :D and a hand stitched border
Material list:
Papers: Prima, Pink Paislee, Kaisercraft, Fancy Pants
Flowers: Manor House Creations, Prima (Got Flowers)
Pink Paislee Portfolio Stamps, stars
Distress ink and pen in Scattered Straw
Gauze, buttons, pins, brads, pearls, twine.
Now I am in the process of making vintage Xmas card for the Fatcats Booth at the Adelaide Paper Show next month. Will be back soon with pictures.
