The light in the sky

The Aurora Borealis is one of the most stunning sights.
Think you can't recreate that beauty?
Think again...
This month's challenge at Make it Crafty is just that.

I used this image and created a template in a shape to "block" out the lighter shades.
Using my air system, I sprayed B24 lightly into the the areas.
Moving the template by 1/4 inch, I sprayed with BG13.
Repeating this process with B02, BG11.
Once I had a good portion covered and a nice shaped beginning; I used a variety of B's and BG's by hand to feather flick some smaller, more random forms. Using my B0000 and BG0000; I blended the edges into the surrounding areas.
I continued this process until I achieved the look I wanted.
It was a lot of fun and something completely new that I would have never thought to try.
I hope you will give it a go as well.
