The Astronomer


Boy is it dark this morning. The humidity is back and so is some rain. It was hard to get out of bed. :)
I've been working on my night sky journal as well as a few other things, and today I have a page from that journal for you. The color today for Yvonne's Colour My World challenge at Art Journal Journey is red.
I have a couple of these red napkins. I love the city building shapes, and added with the torn scraps of the star paper it makes a good background.  Add the Earth, a TH found relative, some interesting old computer background paper, and a little sparkly tape, and you have this page.
I like to think of him as the astronomer.
That's all for me today. Its a work morning and I have places to go and people to see. (And dreams of going back to sleep.)
Sigh.
Thanks for visiting.

Fun and interesting page. Would love to listen to The Astronomer's lecture and to go star gazing with him.

It was so dark when Himself left for school this morning he had to turn on the outside lights. Stay dry today.

This is turning into a fabulous book, Erika. Each page or spread you create makes me love it even more. It certainly is a wonder to behold. You are pulling out all the stops on this one!

Getting up when it's dark is not easy. I woke up at 4 this morning, and it was dark but with stars. Your journal page is gorgeous, great idea. Hope your day t school won't be too bad! Hugs, Valerie

Its a fabulous journal page, I love your colour choice for Art Journal Journey today. The red napkin is awesome and your found relative looks at home on this page and yes, maybe he is an Astronomer.

I like the shapes of the buildings, it gives a sense of home and comfort and the stars bring hope it would seem. It's really love your work, warm greetings!
