Aim For The Moon - For Colour Blast

Hello, Its Kerry here.  I have been inspired by all the galaxy projects I have been seeing.  I had this wooden panel in my craft room, I had painted it previously but never liked it so it sat in my UFO (unfinished object) box.  It had this great cracked texture, so I prepared it by giving it a good coat of black gesso.

 

 I started liberally spraying the shimmer sprays in 'Rose petal', 'Deep Water' and 'Singin the Blues' and dried it thoroughly.



 Once dry, I used a dauber and some white gesso to give some 'cloud' like areas to the panel.


 Next I used one of my favorite craft supplies... baby wipes :)  I sprayed the baby wipe with 'Bling', 'Rose Petal', 'Singin the Blues', 'Deep Water' and 'Snow white' and dried this thoroughly also.




Then I tore the baby wipe into small strips.


 Using the embossing powder in 'Bling' I embossed some Whichcraft chipboard embellishments.


To put it all together I flicked some 'stars' with white ink on the background and painted a few with a fine brush. I layered my baby wipe with some black gauze.  I attached the embossed stars and frame and printed this quote (one of my favorites, some people say its by NV Peale, other sources say W Clement Stone). A sprinkling of glitter and microbeads and we're finished :)
 








Thanks for dropping by :)
