Make Your Own Constellation Art


Hello World,

It’s no secret I love anything outer space related and stargazing. Before I discovered my passion for design, I actually wanted to be an astronomer or a physicist. I even was almost going to be a galaxy for Halloween this last year.  To bring a little of the night sky into my home, I DIY-ed some simple wall decor featuring one of my favorite constellations- Ursa Major.

Check out the tutorial to make your own:


1. Gather your supplies: a small canvas, black and blue acrylic paints, Mod Podge, glitter, a Sharpie, studs, and a brush.

2. Paint your canvas. I painted black paint on the top half, and blue on the bottom half, and then blended them together to create a gradient night sky.

3. Allow paint to dry, and then apply a layer of Mod Podge.

4. Sprinkle glitter onto the wet Mod Podge and allow it to dry. Once dry, add a second layer of Mod Podge to seal the glitter.

5. Once all your Mod Podge is dried, draw out your favorite constellation with the Sharpie.

6. Dip the back of each stud in some Mod Podge, and place it on the canvas at each star location. Allow to dry and enjoy!

If I can get my hands on more small canvases, I think I’ll make a series of these and hang them up in a row. What is your favorite constellation?

Happy Crafting!

“We’ll be counting stars” Halloween Makeup

Hello World,

I love Halloween. The candy, decorations, costumes, and non-traditional makeup is completely acceptable. For my costumes, I like to focus more on my face, and have my clothes being a secondary focus. I also live in Idaho, so I usually freeze if I don’t wear many layers on Halloween.

Below is a Halloween makeup idea inspired by the Milky Way Galaxy and “Counting Stars” by OneRepublic.

For this look, I used all drug store eyeshadows, E.L.F. glitter eyeliner, Wet ‘n Wild liquid white eyeliner, and Kiss lashes.

I originally was only going to do half my face, but I got a little blend happy and kept expanding the galaxy onto the other side of my face.

What are you going to be for Halloween?

PS- My hair is not as brassy as it appears in these photos. Promise. I just forgot to adjust my white balance for indoor lighting.
