Altered Metal Barn Star

I wanted to make my mother a unique mother's day gift. I came across some cheap metal barn stars and decided to create this project for her for mother's day. I was inspired to share this by Melanie over at the Croppinsville Blog. For this altered barn star, i cut all of my paper pieces using a pattern. I printed my pictures on photo paper and cut them using my pattern. I inked the edges of my paper using cranberry Colorbok Cats Eye Pigment Ink. Then I put modge podge all of the star and attached my pieces. I followed up with 4 additional coats of modge podge. This is the end result.
