Be your own star - another AJ page

Here's a page I made in my art journal earlier this week.

I've sprayed different Dylusions ink sprays on yellow cardstock, which gave them a rather different colour. The turquoise became green, red turned orange and so on.. Quite fun, really, not quite knowing how the colour I sprayed would turn out!

I've also used different Dylusions stencils. They are just so cool, and you can get many different effects by using them in various ways.
The stamps I used on this page are from Dylusions and Norsk Stempelblad. I really like the "grungy" (can you say that?!) stars, and they were actually what inspired me to write the words "Be your own star". It may seem planned, but it wasn't at all. All my pages are made in the spree of the moment, never planned.. That's the fun of it - just playing with colours and stamps as you go..
I've added some Stickles to the star in the middle of the flower, and some Liquid pearls on the side, just to get some texture on the page. I also gave one of the big stars a coat of Distress Crackle paint - Clear rock candy, wich I coloured with Distress Stains - Picket fence and Adirondack Acrylic paint dabber - Gold.
I've doodled with the lovely Sakura gel roll pen which is the absolute BEST white doodling pen ever!
Earlier I've used both Ranger's and one from American Crafts, but they are nothing compared to this! I just love the crisp white colour the Sakura pen gives.
Finally I went around the page with the dabber and also gave it a good spritz of Perfect Pearls mist - Sunflower sparkle.

Thanks for popping by!
