Day 3: Give me some space

I wanted to keep this week to Halloween stuff only, but I couldn't help but share this now.

I started painting just recently.  I am not very good.  I just do it for fun.  There are a few things that I have painted up around our house, a lot of it is in Dexter's room since I painted most of the decor.

On a recent trip to Hobby Lobby, I saw this picture.

It was huge and I immediately recognized the art.  It was also like $60.  I had the whole set of this scrapbooking line at home.  So I picked up some 12x12 canvas and started.  I repainted this about 4 or 5 times.  I'm still not 100% happy with it but well, it's what I got.

After painting the background I mod podged the scrapbooking embellishments to the canvas.  Then afterwards, I sprinkled the whole thing with glitter for the appearance of stars.  The canvas cost me, I think, $12 for 6 (?) maybe, and then I had everything else.

It's not my best work, but I like it and it will make a nice addition to Dexter's already awesome bedroom!
