Theme 38: In the Stars

How you choose to interpret the theme is completely up to you. It simply needs to be tasteful – no pornography or messages of hate here. When you sit down to create, you cannot think about how people will or will not receive your work. You are required to simply enjoy the act of creating.

We have all turned our faces to the night sky at one time or another. Was it to look for Orion, the Big Dipper or another constellation? Was it to watch for shooting stars? Was it to make a wish? Whatever magic you have sought from the stars, bring it to life in any way imaginable.

Important Guidelines

The work submitted must be something you have created and/or worked on between the time the theme was revealed and the Thursday unveiling. Please submit your response to no later than end of day Wednesday, October 21st if you would like it to be posted on Thursday, October 22nd. OR send me a link to your response to include in the comments section of the post.

With your response please include:

1. Your name - either first name, shop name or both.

2. The name of your piece (if you choose to give it one)

3. Something you'd like to share (process of creation, idea behind piece) if you'd like to share anything. Please limit this to 2-3 sentences

4. The shop and/or blog links you'd like to include

5. Two photos of your piece or of each of the pieces (3x5 or 4x6 and 72dpi or a max of 96dpi - if you need any help with that please don't worry I'd be happy to help!)

Most importantly, enjoy the starlight!

I'm so excited for this theme! I'm a bit of an astronomy geek and your inspiration picture is so beautiful! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

This is such a perfect theme--I was literally just outside admiring how clear & beautiful the sky is tonight. Is anything more magic than a sparkling night sky?
