It's all in the stars - Astrological Signs.......D

Where does all the time's time for yet another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and it is the Pink Teams turn.  The challenge this week is being hosted by the lovely Dawn and the theme is 

This can be interpreted in any way you wish ......

I chose to alter yet another canvas.  I gessoed and then laid down modelling paste mixed with dark blue paint.  I then used crackle embossing paste with a patina coloured paint.  Once crackled I collaged over the top using individual zodiac signs which has covered most of the textured crackling lol. 

I then stamped a zodiac circle on white card and tore round it.  I dabbed navy and red DI over the top.  I then triple embossed it using utee.  Once dry I cracked it in places for the battered look.  I added a pointer in the middle to choose the birth sign required.  The same technique was used for the lettering.  

I will be giving this to my son instead of a card for his birthday in May.

I do hope you have enjoyed your visit and I hope to see you join in over at Eclectic Ellapu this week.
