The Aurora Borealis is one of the most stunning sights.
Think you can't recreate that beauty?
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.
