Illustration Friday: Star gazing

This week's Illustration Friday theme is Star Gazing. What a lovely topic! It immediately had me wishing for warm summer nights, lying on the grass by the lake, watching the stars overhead.
I did these in my Sketchbook Project book. Well actually, on watercolour paper which I then stuck in. The top is using a wash with salt in it (I discovered it only really works if it is table salt, not the sticky sea-salt kind). I then used a metalic mist spray and a stencil to make the stars. Unforunately you can't see how shimmery they are.

The second one is a watercolour and ink and coloured pencil drawing. I tried the salt thing again but ended up just painting in some little stars.
