Stars - Mixed Media Monday

Happy Monday, friends! That means it is time for another Mixed Media Monday.

I am still participating in the Journal52 Art Journal prompts, I am about 2 weeks behind but hope to get upto speed soon!

Here is my page for Week 11's Prompt, which was Stars: to take inspiration from the nights sky.

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss - you'll land among stars.

I started my going over my page in purple and then blue paints, the paints I used were quite thick and also had a metallic shimmer to them, which added to the night sky look.

This next picture should show the metallic shimmer a bit more:

I used stencils and gold paint for my stars and free-hand painted the moon. 

The quote was printed from a free PDF Printable I got HERE. I just minimised the poster sized pages down to fit onto 1 A4/Letter sized page, and cut each word out with pinking scissors. I also water colour painted each cut-out word with blues and purples to give a bit of colour. 

Just a simple page, but I am happy with the results and I love placing inspirational quotes in my Art Journal to reflect on at a later date.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to be back soon with some more artwork.
