Galaxy Themed Mixed Media Art Canvas

Hello All and Welcome to The Crafty Bat

I am a big fan of the galaxy look so I wanted to create my own on a 5x5 framed canvas, I used the following materials: Distress Ink Pads, Blending Tool, Water, Dew Drop Ink, Water Brush and a lovely quote stamp from Bee Crafty.

To get the look I was after I had to decide on the colours I wanted to use this took some time with changing my mind then looking at other colour combos until I was finally happy

I layered up the colours bit by bit and then went over all the edging to give it a dark space look I finished the canvas off with a mixture of white ink and water and flicked it on.

Next I used a Star Stencil and my white ink with my water brush and coloured in the stars in the stencil and carefully removed the stencil.

The last part I then stamped the quote onto some smooth white card, cut it out and inked the edges up and then played about with where to put the quote. Once I was happy I then glued them into place. 


One galaxy themed canvas complete with a fitting quote "Shoot for the moon Even if you miss you'll land among the STARS"

I hope this has given you some inspiration to have a try your self, play around with different colour combinations and techniques and most of all have fun doing it.
