Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

 

This is my make for the DT team of Outlawz

Sunday - Songs and Rhymes


For the month of  January our sponsor is: Sherry West Art with a prize of 2 images


The  challenge for this half of the month  is to take inspiration from...

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Perhaps it is little known that Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star actually consists of 5 verses, with the fifth verse rarely sung. Here’s the complete 5 verses, taken from the Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes (2nd edition, 1997), with the repetition of the first two lines added to fit the melody.


Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
****
When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
****
Then the traveller in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

In the dark blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye,
Till the sun is in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
****
As your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the traveller in the dark,—
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!


Note:  The theme doesn’t have to be taken literally.  You may use any word or phrase out of it for your project.

I used  a yellow shimmery water colour both for the background and the moon and stars adding some other colours to finish painting the digi .

I started with a white card blank using mats of kraft card. 

The yellow layer is a background using the wax frottage technique - using a wax crayon and an embossing folder.

I then added the three star buttons.

You will find this on the Outlawz  Sunday Songs and Rhymes Challenge on January 10th.

Happy Crafting!
