Wonderful Adventures

It's challenge time again and I am hosting it! I'm a bit late in posting it hey! Well, this week we are sponging. I went crazy sponging this week. I used my nestabilities to cut a big circle from a post-it note, stuck it on as the moon and then brayered the sky. I did a lighter blue around the moon itself and darker to the edges. Then I removed the post-it and replaced it with the negative so that it masked the blue sky and sponged the moon. After that I sponged the clouds using Michelle's tutorial. I have been meaning to try it for AGES because she is just the queen of clouds and they always look great. My biggest issue was drawing a cloud shape that I like!

Here is the inside with a daytime sky and some more clouds:

Remember, if you join in the challenge, leave a link on the High Hopes Blog and a random winner will receive a prize of First Ride and the Wonderful Adventures sentiment! Woohoo!
