This fortnight, Craft Barn's 22nd quotes and/or lyrics words were Moon and Sensation. Some of you were here earlier in the week and saw my ISP is not working at the moment, so my friend and neighbor loaned me an old laptop computer that has no mouse. She also gave me access to her WiFi, but I can only use it when she isn't on one of her many devices. So I knew I had a limited time to finish this challenge.
I had an idea of what I wanted to make, even before I looked for a quote, because I have several rubber stamps I thought I could use that would go well with anything moon related. Of course, I knew I wouldn't be able to take step out photos because I can't seem to load PhotoShop on Sally's laptop, but I was able to get my scanner to work.
I began by finding the quote I liked, which is really part of a poem. I spritzed the background of my used file folder with three of my shimmering mists, but the colors were so nearly identical, they all looked basically the same to me. I cut a yellow moon sliver,
then spent a long time looking for my beautiful face stamp. I don't have that many stamps and it's one I use a lot, so I can't figure out why I couldn't find it after going through every stamp I own in the three drawers that hold my stamps. What I found was a moon that had been stamped by a swapper when I participated in an image swap one year. I cut it out and colored it with blue pigment ink.
You can see the poem is by Emily Dickinson, and this is the first verse. There are four more verses, but I didn't use them. I also show this is the 22nd entry.
One final look of my moon before I head to the link-up.
I will also be entering this in Art Every Day Month (AEDM) for Day 3,
I also want to thank all of you for your lovely comments on my 21st entry. I was once again able to visit everyone, but still can't leave comments to those who are on Facebook, Flickr, or Fiona Spain who uses G+.
