The last for BOAF

Well this is my last project for Birds of a Feather Kit club.  Time FLIES!  (Did ya' get the pun?  Yes...intended...)

Anyways, when I got my kit in early JUNE, I printed these photos from LAST July 4th to do a double page spread.  I had been waiting for the perfect kit and this was it!  PLUS, I want to start working on my double pagers a bit more...i need to start feeling comfortable with is what I came up with.

I love the burlap stars and the sparkly ones, too, and I thought they had a nice contrast with each other.  I also used the red mesh in the kit to cut out star shapes, too, and layered them on my clusters.

I wanted to add a bit more sparkle, too, so I used some shiny silver paint and painted some stars in the background with a mask.  And to make my large blue stars stand out a bit more, I stitched around the inside edges with red thread.

I really like the design of this 2 pager, so I decided that I would share it with you in the form of a sketch!  Hope you can use it!
