Starry Inspiration with Art Anthology

Hello All! Today I'm up over at Art Anthology sharing my Starry Inspiration Canvas

This month the  Dream Team's challenge was "Art Appreciation" . For my project I choose Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night for my inspiration....

I started by pulling out any and all my blues.....



For my first layer of color was a heavy mix of Corlorations. After my mist dried I lathered on a mix of  several Blue Velvets....


Before my Velvets dried a used my catalyst  tool to add a ton of texture and movement to my canvas. I even mixed in a bit of Dimensional Crystal!

After my layer of blues dried I smoothed on a bit MUD (our new smooth paste) to form the base of my circles, which I quickly covered with a bit of Vegas Gold.


Before my layer of Vegas Gold could dry a pushed my 
Hurricane Stencil into the paint and added a bit more paint.


Which brought me to this stage......


For my finishing touches I added a quick platter of Raider and a Van Gogh quote.



A closer look just for fun....




While I know I am no Van Gogh.... 

I hope I have inspired you to play with your paints today!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
