Journal Pages.

Inspired by the Masters is this months theme at Art Journal Journey.
Oh dear, where to begin, there are some fantastic pieces of inspiration over at AJJ.
Anyway after looking through some old books  I came across Van Gogh's painting called 'The Starry Night'.

I printed out a copy as I intended to use part of  it on my page, but first of all I got out the paints and had a go at my version of the  sky and background hills. Then a bit of fussy cutting of the print out to add to the bottom of the page.
 This  is not one of my comfort zones, but I enjoyed the challenge to try.

I am slowly catching up with my Journal 52 pages,  this one fits the prompt for Week 44 Skyline.

For week 40  at Journal 52 the prompt was Experiments.
I used one of my  first Brusho try out/ experiments pages  and this was  the end result.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.
