Journal52 #5 - Television

 Thankyou for all your comments on my last blog post, it's always so nice to be able to share my art with people.

Today's post is taking us back to the journal prompts from

I am up to week 5, and this page follows the prompt "Television" and couldn't be any more "me" if it tried!

As a huge science fiction nerd I have many TV shows I could have chosen from, but as I'm currently rewatching Stargate SG-1 from start to finish I thought it an appropriate choice. Plus I instantly had an idea for an awesome Stargate themed page!

The main feature of this page is the SG-1 Stargate itself, which holds a wormhole through which the show's characters travel to other planets each episode.  

I kept the background simple as the Stargate contains a lot of intricate detail that I didn't want overshadowing by too much business elsewhere.  This page was mainly painted in acrylics.

The sentiment is a play on the saying "There's no place like home", with the " home " bit replaced by the Stargate symbol address for the planet Earth; home for most of us I presume!!

The "There's no place like" is formed from die cut letters bought from my favourite craft shop, That Craft Place.  Those, along with the earth address and the yellow Stargate chevrons were coated with Glossy Accents, also from That Craft Place. 

Thankyou for popping by, please do leave me a comment, I just love hearing what you folks think of my creations!
