* Circle Play


Yesterday I attended an online workshop hosted by Stampers Grove and taught by Gwen Lafleur. Gwen is an amazing artist and she designs for PaperArtsy and Stencil Girl.  

Here is what I made:

I worked on 9 x 12 inch watercolour paper and collaged the background using Professor Plum and Haystack PaperArtsy Fresco paint, along with some Heavy Cream over the collaged elements. 

The circles were stamped - I used a selection of circular Rubber Dance stamps (from Crazy Flowers Set 1 and Textured Sea Creatures). The leaves were collaged with stamped, green gelli printed paper. 
Colour was added to the circular flowers with Gelatos and Neocolour II crayons and I added some doodling with black, white and gold Posca pens. 

White acrylic ink was splattered over the finished piece and the edges were inked with Ground Espresso and Black archival ink. I also added some gold acrylic paint to the leaves and along the edges.

Thanks for stopping by today!
