A wonderful place, where you can meet fabulous artists and lots of inspiring tutorials all thanks to the lovely Marjie Kemper, one of the most talented and generous artists I met. Please do check her gorgeous website here:

So, I started my background on a piece of heavy weight watercolor paper that I gessoed and then applied modeling paste through a couple of stencils and Finnabair 3D gloss gel medium through another.

When everything was dry I began spraying and inking until I was happy with the result.

For this purpose I’ve used ColourArte Radiant Rain (Namorado, Autumn Leaf  Seafoam, Teal zircon and Pewter and Primary Elements in Sunset Glow, Rose Gold, Teal Zircon, Mystic Blue and Warm Gray as well as ColourArte Pure Mica Minerals in Solar Gold and Heavenly White. While I was waiting for the background to dry, I started working on the stars. All the texture you can see there it was achieved only with gesso and the heat tool. First I diecut two stars . I applied on both with a palette knife a generous amount of gesso and then I sandwich them. When I pulled them apart, all that yummy texture was there in it’s glory. :) I left them dry and I inked/sprayed them. Drying the stars I started to play with the heat gun pretty near to the surface (be careful not to burn it though) and the gesso started to bubble and here is the result.

I glued the stars together using Finnabair soft gel medium in a Fineline applicator bottle. The rays are created with a hot glue gun. For the final touches I added some lovely Memory Box diecuts and some crystals and… Voila!
