Twinkle Journal Page

Finally, I sat down and made something!  I came up with an idea for a journal page.  The grandkids and I sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star which I thought would be the perfect way to complete this gelli print that I made during Summer of Color.

The original 8x8 inch print is HERE.

The original list of supplies included paint in two blues and a green on the gelli plate.  I used Tim Hotlz' globe die as a stencil.  Then I added white paint through a star stencil.

To create my journal page, I added the following:

Luna Girl Moonbeams digital image of girl and wings from their Shabby Green collage sheet.
Red Lead stencil of words from which I combined letters to create the word twinkle.
Computer generated word labels  Ranger Distress Inks were used on these items.
STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge stamp set--double arrow which I stamped in-between the word labels with Brilliance Moonlight White ink so that there would be a subtle sense of movement .  I went over the ink with a Sakura Gelly Roll clear star pen . I also used this pen to highlight the the word Twinkle.

I'd like to enter my journal page in these challenges:
