Orion wrapped in the moon

For my friend Orion's bday it seemed appropriate to use the moon wrap I bought at the Neiman Marcus/Target pop-up last December in NYC. The wrap is by Rodarte. That's right, designer paper.

To add to the theme I made some galaxy stationary with my new white ink I recently bought for calligraphy experiments.

You can make a galaxy on any dark paper with a paint brush and some white paint or, in the case of this project, white ink. Dip the brush and then fan the bristles with your thumb towards your paper. Whallah; Jackson Pollock. Don't forget to spray in a sink or on a drop cloth.

 This was my first time trying out white ink with my calligraphy dip pin.
