Starry Night Arch - Tando Creative

Hi! I'm sharing an arch I created for the Summer theme this week on the Tando Creative Design Blog. One of my favorite Summer activities is star gazing. I used Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Night painting and lyrics from Don McClean's Vincent as my inspiration for this piece.

I painted an Arabian-Style Layered Arch Frame with a shimmery yellow paint. I then backed the arch with a felt damask specialty paper for a fun layer of texture. I painted stars from the Grab Bag of Stars first with a layer of white acrylic paint and then with a coat of Rock Candy Stickles. I finished the frame with dots made with a dimensional pearl pen and song lyrics that read:

"Look out on a summer's day with eyes that know the darkness in my soul."

You can find this chipboard and more in the Tando Creative Retail Store! We'd love to have you join the Summer Challenge!
