Oh My Stars

These are my four precious boyssss...four years ago....Love this pic of them. I used lots of layers and some masking and stamping. The large star in the bottom corner is first stenciled on...with neg of cut, then stamped with a variety of stamps...using the star as a mask I stamped the paper and the edge of the star. The title was computer generated. The quote in the mini K & Co frame is a simple thought from my heart...'My precious sons...the darker the night....the brighter you shine....in my heart.' They are truly the brightest light in my life...I thank God for every moment with them...even the tearful ones. I used some plain card stock...the two pattered papers are from My Minds Eye...there is a bit of paper burning and one K & Co brad. The stars are a take on what Nanne did several months ago...she has an awesome tutorial on her blog...though mine are much less perfect...i wanted them to look a bit distressed. I then accented them with some gold craft paint. All the stars are pop dotted in the middle to keep their shape...some stickles on the swirls and scalloped mat. Thanx for looking! I so appreciate you stopping by!
