Cute Stuff - CREATE - Fancy Pants

I want to share my second layout that was published in the April CREATE magazine.  You can read and download this free magazine HERE.  The sketches can be downloaded HERE.  The second challenge of the month is to use either the card sketch or the tag sketch for something else.  I love this challenge the most each month...and I always end up making a page using the card sketch.  I used a photo of Dewan for this page:

Supplies used:  Cardstock: Daler Rowney acrylic paper;  Patterned papers:  Fancy Pants; Stamp:  Kaisercraft; Title:  Blue Fern Studio; Stars cut with Quickutz; Buttons:  Fancy Pants;  Other:  Gesso and Machine stitching.

This is the card sketch that you can download:


When I looked at the card sketch I was drawn to the panels across the card and the star.  I made that my focus for the page I made.

Here is some close ups:
Some added texture with gesso, stamps and machine stitching.  The first time I am using some twine under my photos.

The stars are always such a cute accent for a boy page.

Thank you for looking and leaving love.

xoxo
