Opening my Citrus Twist package the first thing that strikes is the star gazing pattern paper from Heidi Swapp's September Skies collection. Fashion, movies and home decor have all been under the constellation spell for a while so it's no surprise to see it making the jump into scrapbooking. I'm leaping onto the bandwagon and here's my take on this interstellar trend.
I don't want to be too literal with it so no scrapping about the moon or pairing it with a night sky photo. Instead I choose to focus on the zodiac motifs : how the star points are joint together with lines but with the alphabets of my layout title taking the place of stars. Since I'll be spreading my title out across the width of the page I go with some smaller-sized alphas (spray painted glittery silver to better fit in with the colour scheme of the layout), mixing in a larger sized R from a different set so that it'll stand out when placed against the backpack in the photo. In a final node to this celestial trend I sprinkle some enamel stars among the horns of my deer embellishment cluster.
