Shoot for the Moon...

Hello everyone,
I hope you're all well. Sorry I haven't posted anything for a few days. I've been doing lots of crafting but just haven't had anything finished until now.
I've always liked the quotation: 'Shoot for the moon... Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.' and I thought it would go well with Sagittarius Tilda so I've put them together on a journal. I recently bought some more Frantage and I've used the Silver Encrusted Jewel Kit to create the stars (which are an X-cut die). I have also used:
Papers (hand-stitched) - Maja Design (Vintage Spring Basics)
Seam binding, lace, crystal pin, hemp twine, winged heart charm, tiny vintage blooms - Ribbon Girl
Cheesecloth, gesso - Live and Love Crafts
Roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
Lettering - Pion Design cut-out sheet
Pearls, tiny wooden stars (covered with Aged Silver Frantage), Pumice Stone Distress Ink (used on Kraft card and letters) - Samuel Taylors





A close-up of one of the stars:




































I'm entering my journal into the following challenges:
Midweek Magnolias - New Stash (Frantage kit and this is one of my latest Tildas)
Papertake Weekly - It's All New (new Frantage kit and encrusted jewel technique)
Simply Magnolia - Vintage or Shabby Chic

Thank you for taking the time to visit! I appreciate your kind words so much.

Have a great day!
Rebecca.
