Twinkle twinkle in Amanda's galaxy journal

There is no easy way from the Earth to the stars. - Seneca

Big topic, with so many possiblities. I really didn't know what to do, I had so many thoughts and ideas. 
Decided to just start. 
Laid down the usual acrylic wash in blues, purple and a little red. 

Then the fun part, flicking white paint all over the page to create a star filled galaxy .

The journal is full of colourful planets and aliens and a little whimsical, so inspired by the cover of a children's book I saw at the library and the first nursery rhymes most of us learn, l made a start. 

The little astral boy slowly took form, surrounded by lots of stars and planets. 

Dancing through the galaxy, is he sleeping or just day dreaming, I don't know. 

But as he plays in his imagination he asks, Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are?

And there you have it, all done in a blink of an eye. 

All yours Amanda, enjoy.
