Journal 52-Recycled Art


We are up to week 16 at Journal 52 and this weeks prompt is Recycled Art.
For me this involved a rummage around my scraps and bits and pieces. Like most crafters everything will have a use some day, I cannot throw stuff away. The original base was a page torn from an art  book. Now don't be shocked,  this was a bargain in  a charity shop, you can just about make out the building in the background..
Next came a few sprays with coloured ink and some  left over unused  trimmings.
 The lady [I called her the wise woman] was cut out and is from a magazine picture of  a Van Gough painting, I knew I would make use of it one day. I tend to cut out this sort of stuff , thinking it too good to put in the bin, when they are to  be used is another matter.
Thank you for taking the time to take a look, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
