SIlvery Moon

Hi all, welcome to my blog.  Thank you for choosing to spend some time here, I really appreciate having your company.  Today I am sharing a page from my Goddess book, which I began last year.  Today's page - which I am going to enter in the Artistic Stamper Creative Team Challenge Blog ("Texture") is dedicated to Selene, the Moon goddess.

I started with a page from a Kraft board album (from Papermania) and covered it with canvas, which I coloured with Distress Stains in Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord.  Then I sprayed on some Mr Huey's ink (Passport) and Radiant Rain (Pewter) to darken it down.

When it was dry, I spread a nice thick layer of silver Ferro paint over the top left corner, sprayed my swirl stamp (a foam one designed for stamping on walls!) and pressed it into the Ferro to get a good impression.  While everything dried, I moulded a crescent moon from white polymer clay and stamped the word "Selene" onto frosted shrink plastic using Platinum Planet Brilliance ink.  I also used the Brilliance ink to stamp the honeycomb stamp, which I used unmounted, onto the background.

To finish it all off, I highlighted here and there with Pearl  Moon Metallic gilding wax from Creative Expressions (love the turpentine smell!)  And that was it, finished just in time to enter the April Challenge (nothing like leaving it to the last minute, is there?)
