Default MIX232 - Round and Round (7/7/2017)

Challenge Title: Round and Round
Hostess: dini
Keyword: MIX232
VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE


Happy Mix-Ability day!
Today's challenge is a simple one, with a lot of room for interpretation - circles are a fun and whimsical design element, whether they're polka dots or open circles, randomly placed or in a pattern! Speaking of circles, one little dream of mine is coming full circle next week - I finally get to meet my Dirty Dozen sister Bridget (bfinlay)! Sooooooooo excited about that. But I digress. Here's the challenge....



Create a circle (or multiple circles) on your project using any type of paint.


I used my Gelli Plate to make a background - for one layer I used an open polka dot embossing folder to lift paint away, and for the final layer I used a stencil with multiple circles. The background and my finished card are below!



That's all I know! Remember, for your project to truly qualify as mixed media, you need to use at least 2 different types of art media. You can click HERE for a list of supplies you could choose from.

Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MIX232) when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. Then come back to this thread and paste a link to the card in your gallery so we can all ooh and ahhh! Go forth and create!

This was fun, I'd forgotten that I have paint. I bought 7 new stamp sets a couple weeks ago while in Michaels and one had circles on it, so everything came together nicely.

I did sort of bokeh-style circles on a wrinkle-free distress background.

Sheesh, it doesn't take but one card to turn an immaculate room into a mess!!

This was fun, it provided the boost needed to actually try stamping with bubble wrap. Verdict? Fun but I need more practice!

As I explained in my post, I don't actually own paint other than watercolor, but I did use several kinds of inks and markers on this card. The circles are small and subtle but they are there!

I finally caved and bought a Gelli plate - I made a section of a print from my first play into a card for this challenge.

Circle hello
