Urban Skyline

So a couple things were my inspiration for this projects
1. Moodboard from Mixed Media Place, love those teals/greens and the sunlight.

2. This art journal page created by Aga Baraniak.com  she also has a video tutorial

And my take, I have been trying to figure what was bothering me about this page but looking at Aga's i have it figured out my skyline is too big.  I will need to try again.

I really wanted to incorporate telephone poles- more of an urban skyline.

I used thin wire to string pole to pole, love how this turned out.  I really love the poles definitely trying this again with a smaller skyline I think it will look way better.  (great english eh?)

The background was created with dictionary paper on water color paper and covered with clear gesso.  I used Lindy's sprays, water and a paintbrush for create the background sky.

Used light modeling paste and skyline stencil to create the city buildings.  Painted with Lindy's and Dylusions sprays, I used a paint brush.
Around the star i painted a little gesso to give them a halo affect like they were glowing.

I painted the poles with black water color paints then highlighted with white water color.
