Newton's Nook Designs 4 Year Celebration Blog Hop!


Hello everyone and welcome to the 4 year celebration blog hop here at Newton's Nook Designs!  I'm so excited we get an extra day to show off these gorgeous products from the July release!

I chose to make another project with "Cosmic Newton" stamp/die set.  It was so hard to choose, but I love creating night skies and this image of Newton with his telescope really spoke to me.


I started with the largest die from the Stitched Nested Creative Square by Studio Katia and inked it in multiple darker blue and black distress ink tones.  I knew where I'd be placing my Newton image and wanted it to look like there was a beam of light shining down on him.  For that area I used some Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  

After it was all dry, I splattered  with a little water and watered down white acrylic paint to create outer space.  I copic colored Newton and the tiny planets and placed them in the scene.  Lastly I cut out a banner and heat embossed the sentiment in black and added a few tiny pink stars.  

I hope you've enjoyed my project for this special event and I really appreciate your comments!  Keep scrolling for the list of participants in this hop, make sure to comment on every blog for more chances to win!
