Craft Barn Challenge moon and/or sensation

Well quick off the mark this time although, once I saw moon I knew exactly the song I wanted to do. I may have mentioned I like Pink Floyd and have already used two of their songs. This time I am using Eclipse from The Dark Side of the Moon. The last line is:

'Everything under the sun is in tune but the sun is eclipsed by the moon'

I painted the page with paynes grey acrylic paint. I then cut out a template of the moon and used pastels to create an aura around the moon. When I lifted the template off I gave another coat of paynes grey to the moon bit as the pastels smudged a little. This made it really black and standout against the rest of the page. Finally I wrote all of the songs lyrics down the side in white gel pen in as small writing as I could.

I am well pleased with the result.
