Stamperia Pink Christmas Star Home Decor

Hello, Friends!  Happy Monday!  I spent the weekend decking the halls, and wanted to share this sweet little Stamperia Pink Christmas Star home decor piece with you today.

I started with a 10″ wooden star cutout.  Then I had to break out my Mixed Media Boots from the Closet of Shame.  I wish I had thought to take step out photos, but here’s what I remember about the process.

  • First, apply Tea Dye Distress Ink directly to the surface of the wood.  Spritz with water to allow the ink to activate and spread.  Blot up excess with paper towels.  Heat dry.
  • Next, use a palette knife to apply a layer of Distress Crackle Medium.  Add a not too thick layer…like mayonnaise on a tomato sandwich…which all my southern friends will understand immediately!
  • While the texture paste is wet, sprinkle it with a little Bridal Veil Embossing Glitter.  Then gently heat.  The nice thing about Distress Crackle is that you can heat it.
  • Finally, water down some white chalk paint and brush it randomly over the surface of the star.

Next I just added on layer after layer of chipboard , die cut greenery, flowers, cheesecloth, miniature pine cones…anything that struck my fancy.  As a final touch, spread some Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive and then cover with Stampendous Shaved Ice.  This stuff really sparkles like snow!

This was a fun project to make, and I wore the glitter proudly the rest of the day!  What can I say…I really get into my work!

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday, filled with joy and creativity!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I can just picture you covered in glitter! Kathy, this is gorgeous! All of the shimmery layers work so perfectly together–you have a wonderful eye! And your floral arrangement with the tree and snowflakes is just stunning! This would be right at home in my breakfast room where the running theme is snow and deer! (My deer are wearing foam red noses we got at church this week. Tee Hee. It was really fun to see the congregation, the praise band and the pastor all wearing red noses!)

    You certainly have put us in the Christmas spirit with these recent wonderful winter scenes! An other spectacular mixed media project. I too would like to know if the chipboard pieces are available and where you do most of these purchases. Enjoy this wonderful day!

    Gorgeous home decor piece – love the paper, and the delicate chipboard cut-out with deer is stunning! Thanks for always sharing your amazing creations!!

    Another fabulous project. I learn something from every one of your creations – love the way you used the little Christmas trees, various foliage, snowflakes and gems on the snowflakes. These are things I would not have ever thought to include in a layout/project and yet you do it and it all blends and flows beautifully.

    Oh Kathy, this is really gorgeous. I love everything about it :) Very pretty, very wintery. You could use it as a winter theme not just Christmas ;) Hugs to you my friend.

    This is just beautiful. In your list of supplies you mention that the chipboard pieces are from your stash. Are these still available? They are wonderful.

    Great home decor, Kathy. The idea of using a star is perfect for these winter months. Your mixed media crafting is so beautifully designed and done. The deer is a lovely focal point…miss seeing them since my move. Creating something like this might be a great reminder of them. tfs
