DREAMING OF A STARRY NIGHT
I took just a little extra time with this image, to Distort  the once-round lavendar-blue, starry "doughnut" and painted on the Layer Mask to make it appear to hang at the end of the "branch"/"hammock"/"bed". All of the strokes were done loosely and quickly and the whole image took about a half hour to complete. Again, the first strokes were done without a plan and the rest were built on what I "saw" as they were made. 

Here's how the Brush and image were created, on a 500 x 500 pixel 300 ppi black Canvas:

1. Made a Pattern from some random brush strokes to which I applied:

  • Effects menu, Esoterica, Apply Marbling
2. With my new pattern selected in the Patterns palette, chose the Pen brush, Soft Edge Pattern Brush variant from the Brushes palette.

3. In the Brush Controls palette, used the same settings as in the image named 
"PATTERN PEN PORPOISES,  GABBY GRUBS,  BABBLING BALLOONS,  OR WHO?":

4. Painted brush strokes and used the Layer Mask as described above.
