Wreck This Journal: Poke holes in this page using a pencil

Standard

This wasn’t completely my own idea.  I was browsing pics on Twitter (#wtj #wreckthisjournal) and I saw someone had had the clever idea to make the holes into stars.  I’m so sorry I can’t remember who this artist was, but if you are reading this, let me know and I’ll credit you!

I also can’t completely remember what her page was like, but she did say I was welcome to use the idea as long as I put my own spin on it.  So hopefully that’s what I’ve done!

I poked holes in the black paper, and then I put this gold glittery paper behind it, to make the ‘stars’ appear to shine.  You can see this better in the close up pic.

Then I added some other stars to the black paper.  I wanted to use a gold pen, but as luck would have it, that appears to be the only colour gel pen that I don’t have!!  But I quite like the contrast of the silver.

I then used a gold glitter pen to add some trails behind the gold ‘stars’ to make them look like shooting stars.  I’m not entirely sure this gives the effect I intended, but I like it anyway!
