After a play day at timetocreate exploring different ways to change background papers, one paper in particular screamed.. Celestial!!!! The whole piece, once finished, reminded me of some distant planetary system with moons, satellites, planets. I originally was going to do a mobile featuring such planetary objects, but after a very vivid dream, and one which oddly for me stayed in my mind the day after, I came up with the idea of a festival mask.
|Completed mask with photo edited on a night setting to show the glitter.|
The background was a glossy black A4 card. This had been daubed with metallic acrylic paints in copper and bronze. radiating from these were lines of Viva metallic pens. In between we stamped with silver and added imprints from the end of our daubers with gold 3D Stamping Paint.

To the mask shape cut from this background I added some gold glittered stars, (these have come up silver on this photo), stars cut from gold and copper-coloured mirror board (finished with Kindyglitz bling) and tinsel pipe cleaners bent into star shapes . I added additional silver finishes around the outside of the frame and eye slits ( dabbed on silver ink).

Thank you for stopping by. There's still time to get your celestial muses working. We'd love to see your art at anythingbutacard so why not drop on over and have a look at the amazing pieces done by the rest of the team.
Cheers for now.
