Black hole sun

Howdy, howdy everyone! Got a quickie art journal spread to show ya with {gasp} - pastels!

As you may or may not be aware, I'm more of a grungy and dark crafter. I struggle with pastels and have no eye for the color wheel and what goes with what! It usually ends up in a muddy mess 😑

I was actually challenged on FB by a friend of mine to do something bright so I got to work and took up the gauntlet. I used distress oxides for the background and some stencils.

When I did the other side, I had that Black Hole Sun song by Soundgarden stuck in my head 😅

It was fun to be challenged but I still cringe when doing anything bright! 


  1. Bit of a surprise to see you using the softer colours Cathy, but you know you have ‘rocked’ right? You got a touch of grunge in on the sun though, so all’s not lost 😆😆 Joking aside, it’s a fab page ... Jane x

  2. Stunning gorgeousness here and the colours are so pretty. xx
    Have a lovely weekend. ♥


Hey - Tell me something good!
