Sky at night

Night skies .
I always think the night sky looks quite magical as the stars begin to  twinkle in the darkness.
I have made this page for Erika's theme of
In the Sky/In the air.... over at
The background is watercoloured, sprinkled with navy powders, then spritzed with water.
I fussy cut the stars and added some glitter, more on me than on the stars.
I used a TH skyline stamp at the bottom of the page. First of all it didn't show against the background. the second attempt at fussy cutting got thrown in the bin. This is the third effort......not  what I hoped it would look like. But it does convey to me how  vast the sky is
 and how because its there,
 we may take it for granted and not spend  time to look and wonder.

Thank you for calling in today.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

    1. Yes we should pay much more attention to all the things around us and deep in us ... that would heal the world !
      What a wonderful scene --- I love the background and the stars and this London skyline stamp is simply amazing!
      A fantastic entry for Erika's topic dear Yvonne! Thank you once more this month! You are my STAR in the AJJ sky!
      Have a great Saturday evening and a relaxing Sunday tomorrow!
      Hugs, Susi

  4. This is an amazing scene. I love how you have the giant stars and the London city skyline. Yes, you and I have been on the same wavelength before and I like you navy powders. I think I need to try a page with those. And the quote is also perfect. The excitement from nature in all kinds is always wonderful. Hope your weekend is going well, and thanks again for linking up to Art Journal Journey. It is much appreciated for certain. Hugs-Erika

  5. Beautiful night sky scene, Yvonne. I love the sentiment. Eileen xx

    Dear Greetings

  8. Wow, Yvonne, that blue color caught my eye right-off and then the point of view is perfect, looks just like I'm up in the air looking down at London. Bravo! xoxo

  9. I'm in awe of your night sky. It is lovely. In fact, the entire page is beautiful. I had to laugh at you getting more glitter on you than the page, Yvonne. I have had that happen to me, too, so I don't use glitter anymore. I think this is a marvelous entry and I am so in awe that you chose to show how vast the sky is and how we often take what is in front of us for granted. Thanks for sharing this with us using Erika's theme at Art Journal Journey.

  10. Stunning sky scenery. Great page.
