To Boldly Go....

     This canvas was great fun to make and it's just right for the current challenge at The Male Room, which is Sci-Fi. Being an avid Trekkie I just had to have the Enterprise in there somewhere.
     It started life as a white canvas that I found in The Works some months back, it has been painted black with acrylic paint.  I have used Cosmic Shimmer (no pun intended) to spritz the canvas to create an array of stars systems in various colours, this I have to do in the greenhouse which has become my spray booth, no worries about over spray in there just a few pretty plants!!
     The planet is a mix of sand and acrylic paint splodged on to the canvas in an arc, this took longer to dry than just paint but has great texture.
     The alien and planets come from a Creative Expressions stamp set called Outer Space. The planets have been stamped on acetate with Stazon and then glittered from behind using Art Institute glue. The alien is stamped on card and coloured with a green highlight pen before being covered with Wow Glow-In-The-Dark embossing powder and he really does glow very well.
    The Enterprise is a small picture taken from a magazine, I really hope it doesn't cause any infringements, it's only meant to be for fun and the canvas is not for sale, it's going on my wall at home.
    I would like to thank Aldridge Crafts for supplying most of the items used. All that remains is to invite you to join us at The Male Room with your Sci-Fi project an wish you in true Vulcan fashion to 'Live long and prosper'.

I would like to enter this canvas in the following challenges:
A Random Fan - Planes, Trains and Automobiles (Spaceships?)
