Going round in cicles

We're kicking off the second week of the Frilly and Funkie challenge today. I am the host for this challenge and it will also be my last post for a while as I'm taking some time out. The theme I've chosen for this challenge is circles. Including circles in my projects is one of my favourite things to do, so for this challenge I want to see circles, lots of circles, not just one! Stencilled, stamped or even a circular project such as a wreath!


 I started by punching some circles from corrugated cardboard.



 I then applied acrylic paint and blended it around the page using a baby wipe.



 I then used some stencils with acrylic paint around the page. 


To give the circles more definition I used a grey acrylic paint around them and blended the paint out using a baby wipe. 


To make the circles stand out even more I used the Prima Art Alchemy paints and again used a baby wipe to blend the colours. 


You can see from this shot how the paint gets caught in the dips of the cardboard. 


 The sentiment was stamped with black Archival ink.


I doodled around the edge of the page and used a white Sharpie pen to add some white dots.


One last close up shot of the text.

I hope you can join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog to see the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
