I've never done an ad challenge before so I had a good look at it and made a list of elements I could take from it: Purple, white and black, mist, stars, net, famous person etc This is what I came up with, hopefully you can see which ideas I went with.....
I created the mist effect with two colours of Shimmer Mist and some ink and a blending tool to make the bottom corner really deep. I made a couple of stencils and used them with some cut and dry foam to make the stars, and edged them in glitter with a quickie glue pen.
To fit in with my photo of Paul Weller I made the journalling block into a target shape for a bit of Mod style!!
I was really proud of the fact that I used absolutely no patterned paper on this layout, I got a good sense of satisfaction from creating the pattern myself. Don't worry though, it's not something I plan to do often, I love patterned paper too much!!!
