August 19..."S" Micro Art Mini Challenge

Star Wishes
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.    Harriet Tubman

Summer nights with stars sparkling and frogs singing, we'd catch jarfuls of fire flies, temporarily holding them prisoners to watch them twinkle for a few minutes before releasing. If we were lucky, we'd see a falling star and make a quick wish. As an adult, I still feel like doing it and it's especially wonderful if I can do this while standing on a beach. Tossing that wish out there while watching a star cross the sky makes it all the more powerful. Stars fascinate us, we watch them, name them, and sing nursery rhymes about them. Wishing on them somehow seems right.
Today's Project:  "S"  Star Wishes
  • Make a quick sketch of your version of a star on your 3x3 card using a pencil.  I made 2, one a bit starfish-like and the other a geometric star someone showed me as a kid how to draw. I drew them on everything and was thrilled at the time that I could make something pop off the page in 3d.
  • Use your favorite materials to add color to the star and the background.
  • Add details with a pen
  • Remember when you were a kid, what kinds of wishes you made on stars? Make yourself a wish now and write it on the back of the card. 
  • Set it out somewhere where you will see it often and remember what you'd like to see happen for you
