Art Journal Challenge: Stars

Good morning,
The art journal challenge is coming closer to it's end!
What a great experience this has been so far.
Don't get me wrong, there are still at least 4 prompts in the bowl,
But it's hard to believe its flown by so fast!

Today the prompt was Stars:

I absolutely adore stars,
and have probably been looking for the right project for those glittery ones for a while!

You can see that I'm working through my journal day by day,
soon it will be too fat on one side, and nothing on the other.
Oh well!
so here are the process pictures
First I just stamped these stars with permanent ink


Then I used my two star stencils to add more starts with acrylic paint.
This blob of paint started out as a sort of pink color, and it was just wrong!
So I covered it with orange, and then white, it's still not quite what I pictured, but there it is
none the less. 
Next I started adding the stars, they are glittery, and have literally been on my desk for years! 
Then I looked for a bible verse, I thought something with stars, 
and then I opened my youversion bible app, and this was today's verse
On a side note, about three or four years ago I painted this same verse onto two pieces of scrap wood,
They have been in my kitchen ever since. 

I'm pretty happy with my stars prompt.
I'm going to miss this little challenge when it ends next week, 
Maybe I'll just start over again!  

Hope you are having a blessed day, and remember to leave a comment for a chance to win some Dina Wakley scribble sticks!
