Wish upon a star

I was in a hurry to finish up a journal page that I started awhile ago for the Words & Paintery June Challenge.   I also mixed in circles and stars because of the Mixed Media Monthly - Reach for the Stars and the Country View Challenge to use Circles


I started with using the edge of the acrylic block and running it through acrylic paints.  I dragged them down the mixed media cardstock to create streaks of paint. 


 After that I wanted a focal point so I created a big circle by dipping in paint the bottom of a pail sitting on my desk.  I repeated a couple times to give multiple circles.   I added lots of splattering over the background with the same paints.


 I then pulled out this sentiment from Yvonne Blair/Impression Obsession and stamped it on tissue paper to put over the top of my background with decoupage medium.  I stamped a fine text randomly in the background which includes the definition of dreams.

I used crackle embossing paste to add a smattering of small stars in the corner and waited for them to dry and sprayed them with distress stain spray.  Then it sat for a week while I tried to think what I wanted to use to add layering.  I decided on die cut stars to layer and ink up in coordinating colors.
