Twine Circles

Having a crafty bank hols and making another circle project.

This time its a 6x6cm box canvas.

First I used black paint and stencils for the background and a book paint using medium so I could pull in back off and leave some behind, then used 4 paints to wash over the top.

I love making the twine circles and have used them a lot when doing mixed media projects.

I painted under one of the circles and used a circle stencil with modelling paste and stuck down the twine. Used one of the PA script stamps, flicked black, white and red paint over the top.
Finished with buttons.

Around the edge I used one of the Ellen Vargo stamps on deli paper with black paint.

More fun.....dare I do another one.......

Circle Frenzy

I have gone into a circle frenzy with this double journal page for the PA Challenge.

I die cut circles from deli paper, fabric, hessian , tissue paper and card and painted in different colours, then for 1 of the fabric pieces I use Emma stencil with modelling paste.

For the deli papers I used all my circle PA stamps and then on the tissue paper some crafter's workshop stencils.

Lots of fun.

Going in Circles

I Lovvvvvvve circles and us them all the time in my art journals, so I HAD to take part in the Paperarsty challenge details here!!

Here is a quick one I did last night.

I used Fresco paints, black stabilo pencil and PA stamps to create my large circle flower. I also used a Prima circle stencil but it hasn't shown up that well.

I think its fun and I don't think it will be my last entry, already working on another one....

Thanks for looking.
