Friends are like stars...

I got a new stencil and stamp set of coordinating stars and could not wait to play with it in my art journal.. I also got some Lindy's stamp gang ink sprays.. When I buy something to try out, I always buy it in blue, as its the colour I use the most.. So I sprayed my background in 2 different blues, one has sparkle its so pretty. Then used Tim Holtz distress stain and a blending tool for the background stars.. Grabbed France Papillon's design cube as it has little stars, so stamped them in black.. Then I went back to the stencil and outlined the stars through the stencil onto a Gelli plate acrylic paint print that I had been wanting to use.. I cut them out and stuck them onto my background.. Then well if you follow me you know what I always do next is the fun part, the doodling around the edges of the stars and adding the white Signo pen lines.. I also added little white dots here and there.

I wanted to write something, I nearly printed it out on my computer and that little voice in my head said no, its practice time.. So out came the pen and I wrote the Quote.. Good friends are like stars you don't always see them but you know they're always there. I just had to sew around the edge of it. It does not look finished to me now until I sew around the edges.. 

So to all my friends and followers this one is for you.. :)

Have a great day
Sandy :)


  1. Another outstanding work of art, Sandy, worthy of framing! I love the jewel tones and how vibrant, but perfectly, you have used them. And, oh my, yes, printing was the ONLY way to go. You have excellent skills with that, too, and should always do it when you can!! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  2. I agree with everything Darnell said!! It is fabulous, just like you my friend, you sparkle and shine!! Thank you so much for always visiting my DT posts and leaving me comments, you shine brighter than most!

  3. Excellent job....I have a hard time understanding why you would doubt yourself when it came out so that quote too!!
