Journal52 wk 10: Art for a Cause

So here is the next page in my art journal.
The promt is: "Art for a cause".

As I donate money to the 
that is what this page is allabout.

Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories, on average, every 38 minutes. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.

I give money to this foundation, because I think children should be happy
and laugh and live. Hope this way I can make a difference.
I started to paint the page in my book sky blue
with a touch of white.
As the symbol of the foundation holds a star,
I used Michael Strong's larger star
stamp and embossed it with dark glitter blue
embossing powder.
Then I took this cloud template and
white paint.I covered the star,so it
wouln't get paint on it.

This is how the page looked when i took 
the template off.
Then I took this Stampotique stamp to symbolize
one of the children.I stamped with archival blach
and colored the child with distress paints.
I was tempted to leave the page like this,
for it shows the helplessnes of the child.

Then I added some small stars and thought
of those kids who had their wishes granted and are 
now up there among the stars.

I found this beautiful sentiment
by Stampers anonymous and just had to
add it with a little doodling around.

Of course the name of the foundation 
had tobe added on the page too.

Here you see the final page
Below you see the trademark of the foundation
that inspired this page.

Have a creative day!

Treffende pagina, Hetty.
In Nederland hebben we de Doe een Wens stichting, met hetzelfde doel.
