Cat 5

Just a cat sitting in the moonlight as the last rays of the sun sink into the horizon.  Makes me wonder what she’s contemplating.

I started this whimsical journal page by placing masking tape on the edges of the page.  I punched a 2″ circle in a piece of cardstock and used it to protect the page as I created the moon by sponging chalk acrylic paint through the hole.


I then used the circle I punched out as a mask while I added the paint to the sky.


I used the Waves stencil to create the sun’s rays.


I replaced the circle stencil I created over the moon and used the Galaxy Cluster stamp with grey ink to create some texture, then added some gesso to create a softer glow and darkened the outline with black marker.  I then stamped the Japanese Maple Branch and Willow Branch around the page.  I sponged black acrylic paint through the Cat stencil and created shadows with a black watercolor pencil.  I removed the masking tape and darkened the border with a permanent black marker, using a ruler to keep the lines straight.

I really enjoyed creating this page and I hope you like it too.
