Hello there! Happy June - wow this year is really zipping by! Time for a new challenge at Countryview Challenges and the theme this month is seeing stars. I decided to get out my paperclay and make a moon and some stars and turn them into a canvas....

Seeing stars at Countryview challenges
I had lots of fun making this - the moon and some of the stars came from a mould by finnabhair and the fancier stars came from a stamperia mould. Once they were dry I stuck them onto the canvas using superthick slap it on and left them 24 hours to set. Next I painted them in goldfinger metallic paint (IB) and I used several IB paints to make the background - raven black, park lane, a translucent purple one. Next I stamped some smaller stars in goldfinger then splattered the canvas using a wash of goldfinger mixed with white gesso. Then I added some silver Glorious and some white and gold frantage and heat set them. By this time i was getting happy with the outcome so then stamped and added my sentiment (from paperartsy).
I hope you feel inspired to join the challenge which you can find here
Have a wonderful day!
