Dark to Light Canvas Dream

Hi there 

How are you today.... it is Sunday and the sun is trying very hard to shine. 

I have been playing doing something different. 

Yesterday I got an old canvas which I had already used and thought I would 
try something different 

So I started painting the canvas with white Gesso and then blue paint. 

While it was drying I played in my new 4" journal with the paints I am going to use.

Can you see how the paint has separated into little balls of colour. 

did not quite work on the actual canvas. Think it soaked onto the canvas. 

Anyway back now to the canvas 

Then used some transparent paste to create the planets on the canvas with 
rays of light radiating out of the planets. 

Filled the circles with Prism paint and waited it to dry 

Added splats of royal blue watercolour paint to the canvas and before it drys 
took my "poky" tool and spread the lines out. 

Then this morning I added more Royal blue across the canvas using 
paints and Gelatos to add texture and depth. 

Can you see the word Dream that was drawn in white paste and the inks below 
leaked into the word. I then added more colour by running over the cream 
Gelatos  crayon. 

I would like to enter it for the following
