Shimmering Stars for 4th of July!

Fire Engine Red Shimmerz on Burgandy Colored patterned paper created a really fun metallic look for this 4th of July Page. I cut out 5 triangle shapes, painted them lightly with Shimmerz, creased them down the center and adhered in a star shape on my layout. It just brought the paper to life, I love it! I used the same technique with the small blue stars by creasing them down each center point. I sanded all the creases and then Spritzed them using Sea Foam. I love the aged worn look the Spritz gave them.

Thanks for letting me share and I hope you all have a wonderful and fun 4th of July Weekend!
