Extravaganza Artwork - Star, Pie, 6x6 LO

I think if I group my last items into three posts, I can get them all posted by Monday! 

One of today's items includes a star created using Huntington products. When I made this star, I wanted to use the damask paper as it is one of my favourites in the paper pack. The picture is not the greatest as the sun was shining in on one side... I also used the Pearl Flourishes and the Sarita Textiles to add some finishing touches.
 The pie, created using the Artiste Cartridge, was not difficult to make and since it was so light, I was able to display it on one of my boards. There are two photos here - a straight on photo that shows the top of the pie and one that shows the side of the pie so you can see the details of the pieces.
The last item is the final layout that I created This is actually a 6 x 6 layout so it is quite small. The photos are from a visit to the Queen Charlotte Islands off the northwest coast of British Columbia. I was sitting on a piece of driftwood, playing my clarinet when my older sister took these photos. I love the Artbooking overlay for this layout and I wanted to use the greys in the Huntington paper pack to show that you can mix other colours with it as well. I chose to use blues. The Sarita Textiles were perfect for this layout and I ended up adding Autumn Terracotta just because it worked so well with the shades of blue.

I was not expecting that vivid splash of blue on the layout as I scrolled down. That is quite lovely! Your artwork is gorgeous, Alyson.
