Goodnight Moon ~ inspired by a Vera Lane Studio digi set

Hi everyone! Yesterday a brand new digi set called Goodnight Moon was released in the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop and I am smitten. It reminds me of sweet dreams, parents reading bedtime stories to little ones, and lots of love. The set consists of four images and a sweet saying. I chose to feature Sleepy Moon Girl with Flowers to star in my art journal page.

I printed the image onto white cardstock which had been spritzed with Lindy's Yellow Rose of Texas and Marigold Yellow Orange Starburst Sprays before printing. It was shaded and the flowers coloured with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and the fussy cut along the outside black lines of the moon only. The image was printed a second time onto white cardstock so that Sleepy Moon Girl could be coloured using the same pencil brands. This image was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and the yellow moon was then adhered on top of the white one from the second image. The finished image was then adhered to black cardstock and fussy cut leaving a narrow black border to help it stand out from the background.

I wanted a cloud behind the moon image so one from the Helga's Hedgehog set was printed, coloured with pencils, and fussy cut the same as the main image so it could be tucked behind when I was gluing things in place.

The background, a 6x6 watercolour page, was spritzed with Afternoon Delight Denim Starburst Spray to create a shimmery night sky. To break up the blue, Ranger Texture Paste was scraped through TCW Tiny Circles stencil. White Posca paint pen was used to brighten the dots which had absorbed some of the blue water based spray. The wording was printed onto white cardstock and the openings in the letters were coloured with yellow pencil. The words were then matted with black cardstock. A doodled border was added to frame and finish the page.

Thanks so much for joining Sleepy Moon Girl and me today. To see more amazing projects created by my talented VLS DT teamies, be sure to pop over to the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group throughout the week.
