Wandering Star

hello everyone, today see the start of a new challenge at Country View Crafts and theme this month is Stars chosen for us by the lovely Rachel.  What a great theme! The team have put together some lovely creations to get you in the mood, so come on have a play, and if you are the Winn you will receive a lovely voucher to spend in the shop.   My piece as usual is a journal page 
 
I used white Gesso and while still wet stroked Fresco Acrylic from Paper Artsy into the Gesso which gave a lovely effect. I could pull the colours about and leave some of the white showing.
 
Once it was dry I painted in the trees again using the lovely chalky paints from Paper Artsy. These are such a versatile Acrylics and my definitely my go to paints.  The stars are from Lin Browns new stamp plate ELB 30 I then added the high lights with a white gel pen. To darken the bottom slightly I rub in some paint with my fingers where needed.   Well that all for now but pop back later tonight as I have another post to share. Hugs Debsxxx
