Shimelle Star Shine - Never Let Go of your Dreams Layout by Rachel Lowe:

Happy Monday everyone.
I am a huge fan of Shimelle and this new collection StarShine is no exception.
This photo if my oldest son has been sitting in my photo box waiting for the right
 collection as I did not want to covert it to black and white as it would lose the features
 of his stunning blue eyes and blonde hair. 
Finally the right collection!
The stunning background paper I used is from the paper pack (it is called Curiosity).  I
 don't often centre my photos but with this background paper I did not want to lose the
 visual impact so I worked from the centre outwards.
I cut it down to 11 1/2 inches and attached to cream card stock. I then sewed around to create another layer to create a border (I have sewn in a messy fashion which I think suites this layout).
I have foam taped my photo to create a 3D effect and so I could add chipboard and 
die cuts under my photo.

 I have sewn on my paper layers and also tucked my chipboard globe ('never let go of your
dreams' is a die cut attached onto the globe chipboard) under the photo. I have added
acrylic stars and chipboard  stars to accentuate the solar system background.

 I have focused my layers and embellishments in the middle of the page to ensure the
 background solar system pattern remains a focus.

To finish I added the acetate word imagine ad the chipboard arrow at the bottom of the page.

Thank you for stopping by today. 
Have a fantastic week.
