February Joyful Stars Blog Hop

  Thank you for joining us for our monthly team blog hop. This month we are featuring new products from the  2014 spring/summer Idea book. If you are coming from my lovely upline Joyce Houck at, then you are on the right path.
   This month I decided to recreate the artwork on page 122. I changed it up by using the Ariana paper pack instead of Lollydoodle. Take a look at how cute it turned out.  Here are a few hints that might be helpful if you try to recreate this.  All the balloons are cut on glitter paper.  The purple balloons are silver glitter paper with the purple glitter gems on top.  Then I used liquid glass over it all to hold them in place.  I also used liquid glass on the owl's belly for demension.  I would love to hear your comments.
 A closer look!
