Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Using a flat brush, base coat the canvas in Calypso Sky. Let dry and apply a second coat if needed.
  2. Turn the mixing bowl upside down onto scrapbook paper and trace the edge with a pencil. Cut out the perfect circle shape using scissors.
  3. Brush a coat of Mod Podge onto the back of the circle and place it gently in the center of the canvas. Smooth the paper down gently with your fingers to remove any air bubbles.
  4. To make the moon, trace the bowl onto a coordinating piece of scrapbook paper. Using a smaller bowl, trace a circle over the same circle but offset it. This will create a crescent moon shape between the two circles. Use scissors to cut out the crescent moon shape.
  5. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge Satin to the back of the crescent moon and apply it to the canvas over the original paper circle. Use your fingers to smooth out the paper and remove any air bubbles.
  6. Cut out other shapes (like stars) from coordinating papers to compliment the moon and adhere them to the canvas in the same way using Mod Podge Satin.
  7. Using a flat brush, apply Mod Podge Glow to the moon shape. Add Mod Podge Glow to the stars and any other papers you would like to glow in the dark.
  8. Using the end of a paint brush, dip it in Mod Podge glow and make small dots all around the moon to look like distant stars.
