Follow Your Dreams - Mixed Media


I was inspired to create the layout of this piece from the City Crafters case card. 

I have been wanting to do a space theme for a while and thought the circles would give me the opportunity to stamp some planets and create orbits and rings by stamping onto acetate.

The base paper is from Kaisercraft Boho Dreams and so is the Follow your Dreams sentiment, the other sentiment is stamped in white in on black card.



I stamped the Eclectica stamps onto acetate and then heat embossed. This is one of my favourite embossing techniques! 
A good tip is to only buy heat-resistant acetate, so that way you won't ever get it mixed up and melt it!


I stencilled the stars with clear embossing ink and then heat-embossed with WOW! powder. I heat embossed some star chipboard shapes to match.

Hi!
Thanks for stopping by Word Art Wednesday to say hello. To answer your question, No, you don't have to use the word art in order to play along. If you read through the third paragraph of the blog post (Or the challenge rules), you will see that any art is fine to enter into our challenges as long as it is family friendly/G-rated, and is just a good, clean piece of art. I look forward to seeing your cards linked up with us. I enjoy what I see here, and look forward to having you play along.
Have a blessed week,
