Although these companies have provided me with some product to create this project the opinions I share are solely my own.

so i stared out playing once again with watercolour paper but this time i started with a sheet that i had used for a clean up from another project.

i cut a circle to cover the centre and then i stared adding Color burst in the various colours.

can you see where i used bits of the torn card in the corners.. they were the inspiration for the colours to go where.

so it was just a matter of adding colour, spraying with water and heating until i was happy with the colour.

then it was time to add some stamps. today i am using The Ripple Effect stamp set from Visible images and i used all three in the set.  firstly i stamped in the back ground with water. you can see the ghosting of the stamped image below

and then i stamped with some archival inks both top and bottom

as you can see i also added some chit chat stickers and i used my stabilo pencil to shadow my large circle

and here you have my final piece.

i love how the silhouette of the white circle  contrasts with the colour on the outside……this is a piece i will display for a while in my studio to remind me to ….

be original, be authentic, be fearless and be me bravely.

until next time my friends,


Supplies used:
