Just thinking of how much I like Van Gogh... starry night

My dd and I love Van Gogh and I wanted to do something different with the newspaper clip announcing her engagement.  I am also playing around lately with some art journaling techniques and painting some canvas (more on this hopefully later).  I painted 2 canvas with some gesso and acrylics, layered some book pages and stenciled some flowers.  I also used a couple sharpies ( white, gold and silver) and made this up for her.  The vintage ribbon border is from our local antique mall.  BTW, the wedding colors will be navy, ivory and silver. :) tfl :)
