The October challenge from the ladies at ARTastic was to use van Gogh's Starry Night as inspiration. I thought of the night not too long ago when I saw the owl (Bob or Terry?) in our neighborhood. I love using stars on my scrapbook pages and have a million star brads so I decided to use those for embellishments.
My journaling, which I wrote in all caps because I love the font in the Where the Wild Things Are previews, says, Seeing this owl in our neighborhood put me in the Halloween spirit. Although the pictures aren't so great, when I see them I remember the night Captain and I followed it as it flew silently from rooftop to rooftop.
Which reminds me that in January I wanted to paint our spare bathroom like Starry Night and Corey went along with it. It was more work than we expected but I think it's fun to go in there.
Here's the before:
I love standing in the mirror with the door closed, seeing the swirls and moon behind me.
If you want to make a Starry Night bathroom too, you only need a gallon of blue, and a tiny bit for the stars. I got a quart of white, yellow, and black, and it was way too much. Also, when making the stars just dab, dab, dab.
The hardest part is trying to find a shower curtain to match! I think I'm going to buy a white one and continue the mural across it with the leftover paint.
