Today I wanted to show you something I made to hang in my room. It's the Leo constellation! While I don't believe in horoscopes, I've always found the concept very intriguing. It would be pretty cool if our destinies were actually written in the stars and the cosmos, wouldn't it? Anyway, I'm a leo and I decided to finally use that round canvas I bought ages ago.
To do the galaxy effect, I first painted the whole canvas a very dark grey and then sponged on some blue, purple and white. I let everything dry and I painted the constellation. To do the small stars, I used the other end of the brush to make little dots. And for the even smaller ones (that you can't see on the picture), I used a flat brush. I put some paint on the brush, pulled the bristles towards me and then let go. It created tiny dots all over the canvas. This was super fast and easy to make and I'm pretty happy with the results. What is your sign and will you be making something like this?
