A Calm Night & Rafiki

If you read my previous post 'Elephant Kisses' then you know I was completely inspired to make another mixed media canvas project. I titled it 'A Calm Night'.
I almost didn't title it but there was a huge empty space and it didn't seem right. I used Basic Grey's Out of Print paper pad for the mosaic background. I then painted over it with twinkling H2O's starter pack colors, and smooch mists (which I mixed with water to dilute the color a little). I added the houses and trees by using markers, smooch ink, and stickles.

I created stars in the sky with stickles and liquid pearls. For the moon I used a journaling stencil and just followed it around with stickles. I added a gem to the middle empty space to complete it.
I absolutely love buttons and recently I saw a page that had buttons as the clouds. I had to steal that idea stat ;)

I also did a layout recently for the July/August Scraps of Darkness Round Robin. I followed Celina (Forevervampress) and I got to lift her Sleep layout. Here is 'Rafiki'
This is me at Animal Kingdom at Disney World last year. I painted the border and used mists and streaks of paint on the background. I fussy cut the flowers and used a stickles/liquid pearls border around the pic. I used the July Scraps of Darkness kit for this page.
