Talking to the moon


For my third piece of art work I used the quote ‘talking to the moon’ from bruno mars song ‘talking to the moon’space3

For my first page I used a light blue color acrylic paint for the background. I stenciled stars with a dylusions stencil using white gesso. I stamped stars with a Tim Holtz star stamp using an archival ink pad. I also used some music stamps for some texture and a word stamp behind the manila tag. On the manila tag I painted it grey and stamped it with a music stamp. I used modelling paste through a shooting star stencil and through the dylusions star stencil, coloring the modelling paste with yellow acrylic paint. I used my Graphix black pen to border the tag. I stamped small earths onto watercolor paper and colored them black and white to more resemble the earth. I used some scrapbook paper with a star print and cut them with an edge to them, creating accents on the side of the page. I painted another piece of watercolor paper with dark blue acrylic paint and stamped moons onto the piece of paper with an embossing stamp pad, I used a brown embossing powder from Lindy’s stamp gang and set it with a heat gun. I then used the Tim Holtz star stamp over the paper to create a space scene and then bordered it with my Graphix black pen again.


For my second page I drew mismatching stars and used watercolors to color them different colors. I paired them and put one on top of another, creating a 3D look. I stamped the background of my page with word stamps, making sure not to ink the whole stamp to create a unique effect. I used modelling paste through the star stencil again, mixing the modelling paste with yellow acrylic paint. I used the music stamp to create texture for the background. I used some more scrapbook paper with a spaceship print. To create the quote, I colored watercolor paper with blue watercolor and stamped my quote with black archival ink, cutting out the words individually. To create the background on the tag I sprayed it with the midnight color dylusions spray and then sprayed white linen dylusions spray with a star stencil and then bordered the tag by using the edge of my archival ink pad.
