Journal 52 Books

Journal 52 and its already week 20. 
The prompt we were given this week was Book Inspiration.
I love reading books, and like many  authors,  I  choose a book to suit my mood. One thing comes that  high on my list  when reading a book, is that it must have an ending. Not necessarily  happy, but a definite conclusion. I went back in time for my inspiration book, . A Secret Garden by Fances Hodgson Burnet.
Using the title  as the prompt for the background and flowers.  The actual cut out book print pieces I used  came from old books picked up in junk shops.

I have been seeing some fabulous journal pages in many of the inspiring blogs I visit.
 Many times I have have thought I would join in at the Art Journal Journey but never quite had the courage to do so. However,  the theme is Circles and maybe , my round flowers  and background splodges will be okay.

Thank you for taking the time to visit, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
I may not get to visit you all for a few days, but will catch up soon.
