Swinging in to say, Happy Friday!
To create this cute scene I masked out the owls from Every Day Wonderful Owls. Then I lined up the little girl on the swing from Happy Mind Happy Life and extended the rope to the moon using Staedtler sketch pens. Now, this is where things went wrong, I used different pens to fill in the masked gaps around the edges of the moon. I don't know what I was thinking... apparently, I wasn't! The ink from the pen I used to do that (I can't even remember which pen it was) bled and created a green tint that I just couldn't get past.
For the sake of not overworking the paint any more than I already had, I stamped the moon again on gold foil paper and adhered it to the piece, and was much happier with the look.
Little Moon loves rainbows. LOVES them. So I paper pieced the little rainbow t-shirt onto the little girl in the swing. I used gel pens to color her and add "moon dust" to her hair and also for the rope. I tied little bows from embroidery floss to anchor the swing to the moon. Don't miss the tiny hot pink toes and fingernails! So cute!
The stars were added by outlining randomly from the Star Confetti stencil then they were colored in bright colors and coated with transparent glitter and a few in purple foil.
Fun Fact: Little Moon's legal name actually means "golden moon." When my daughter decided on what to name her, I was excited to immediately have a nickname for her and began to call her Little Moon or Auri Moon. Recently, I discovered that the meaning of Auri is gold. She was born on the first full moon of 2018. Kismet. So of course I'm even more drawn to the moon now than ever, and of course, her room must be personalized!
Stay tuned for a few follow-up creations I'll share during the upcoming blog hop as well! See you then!
