DIY Airbrushed Galaxy Art
As I mentioned yesterday, for the rest of this week I'm going to be sharing projects I made using the Craftwell Ebrush.
Today I wanted to share with you guys this fun airbrushed art I made for my wall using Hazel and Ruby masks with Craftwell's Ebrush! These 2 products work so well together!
I'm a space nerd so I airbrushed a galaxy onto my canvas and used a Van Gogh quote about stars.
I started by adhering some of the Lace is the Place tissue paper onto my canvas and a couple of strips of the Maps of the World paper along the bottom as well.
I cut out about 3 half inch stars from Hazel and Ruby's "Cut your own Stencil" material and placed them on my background before spraying over if with a variety of markers.
I *love* the Ebrush and my favorite thing about it is that it has adapters for lots of different markers! I used Sharpies, Copics, Spectrum Noirs, and AD markers on this art!
After I had my "galaxy" air brushed, I removed the star masks and gave it a coat of Mod Podge to seal the inks and then added my quote. I used the Brooklyn Alpha for my smaller words and the Chalk Art Alpha for my larger words.
I lightly sprayed over my letters with a black AD marker and then I also outline them as well before peeling them up.
I peeled up my letters and then decided that I also wanted some pine trees along the sides of my canvas, as if you're looking through the trees, staring up at the milky way. So I air brushed those on as well.
Sometimes I get in a crafting zone and don't realize if I'm making spelling or grammar mistakes. That happened here. I realize it should be "makes" and not "make" but it's close enough for me. ;)
