By the Light of the Silvery Moon by Helen Chilton


I love this owl by Melina - he's got real character!

I started off by colouring a 5x7" journal page with the Satin inks. I just sponge them on, mixing as I go.

I then used the A4 circle stencil to create a moon. The yellow ink didn't show much but it did mean....

...I could sprinkle on some Aged Silver embossing enamel while it was still sticky.

Playing around with my paints, I decided to try out the Interference purple which showed up really well on the dark background.

I added stencilled stars in the same colour.

After that just add your owl and leaves. They've been painted with the inks as well.

The inks are really great for colouring with - they sort of blob and mix together creating a lovely effect, drying to a satin finish. The owl is a really good size and I've finished everything with a bit of white doodling. Hope you enjoyed this project.
