She makes her own way

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog where today I have an art journal to share that I made for Country View Challenges as an inspiration piece. The theme this month is 'circles' and was set by Hazel.

I made the background with a 3" gelli plate that I used as a stamp by brayering paint (PaperArtsy Fresco Paints) on it and then using a rubber stamp (PaperArtsy), with circles of course, to add some interest. I then stamped it onto the page and repeated until the page was full. Next I used the same stamp, with Pink Distress Ink in the conventional way and added some more circles. 
I bottle cap was used for the back circles and I also used a stencil (Dylusions) and added some polkadots with white paint. For the black splatters I used a Dylusions spray ink. 
Next I stamped the lady (Dina Wakley) who has circles about her also and chose a sentiment (Artistic Outpost) which I stamped on white paper and cut apart. I glued it onto the page and doodled around the strips with a black pen. 
The last thing I did was draw the black lines around the edges.
I hope you will play along with us this month. Make sure to read all the rules on the Country View Challenges Blog though ! 

Until later in the month when I will have another inspiration piece ! 

Thank you for stopping by today !
