I love a full moon and I hoped to take a photo of one on Monday 22nd Feb, but sadly the sky was very overcast that night.
So I decided to dig out some lovely moon photos I took in September. You may have seen these but here goes. They were taken on holiday in Rhodes.
I had one of them left over, it was a face I didn't like but it had some great textures so I decided to paint it over with Picket Fence crackle paint.
I wanted to use a moon quote so I used the Moon one below. This has actually been attributed to several people so I can't be definite who is the owner!
Shoot for the moon, if you miss it you will still land among the stars
Once my night sky background was make it was time to put my creative hat on. This is what I came up with.
Here is a close up of my moon and the lunar dictionary definition. I add even more texture with frantage and surrounded the moon with my Noor star die which I also dipped into paint. The little stars are a Lavinia stamp. I used gold acrylic paint.
I still wanted to keep a touch of the whimsical with my lunar page so I added a Lavinia fairy stamp and die cut a star for her to hold which was sprinkled with gold glamour dust.
I would like to enter my mixed media piece into the following challenges.
