I started by punching out a bunch of patterned paper squares.
Next I made a grid with a ruler that I lined up all the squares on.
I toned it down with a light layer of white paint.
Then I added some scraps of fabric.
I added a spray of stars made with a stencil. All that was left was to draw my girl and then fussy-cut her out and glue her to the background. I also stamped and cut out the cute little bird for her hair. For the sentiment, I combined words from two different Dylusions stamp sets. I embellished my girl's dress with the "joyful" sentiment from Bo Bunny and some Ruler Ribbon from Tim Holtz.
Here are the supplies I used on my project that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
