Apple Barrel Gloss Paints were used on the background of this page. I love their shiny-ness! And I was thrilled that I was able to write on top of the paint. I wanted a lop-sided star on this page. But I wanted one that looked better than this one. Those darn haphazardly lopsided stars are harder to draw than they appear. The silver ink aura around the star is the only other element of the page that I wish had come out better.
