Circles and Squares!..

Hi-de-Hi Campers,

(I'm trying to change the introduction a

Yesterday's make was this...

...a tiled canvas frame focusing on the theme of circles. 

The tiles were made using PaperArtsy 4x4 greyboard and cut into lil squares (sorry if you can see some slices in the tiles; the craft knife wasn't playing ball)!

After cutting them, I then stuck them on with Glossy Accents and left them while I had lunch! 

After lunch...the tiles were dry so it could then get to decorating them. YAYYY!

All the tiles were done with a base of Snowflake (now I'm not sure if it was needed).

Once that was dry, I then cut pieces of paper the same size and tiles and stuck those on randomly.

Painted the remaining squares (left to right) with...London Bus, Tango, Sage, Smurf, Orchid, Wisteria, (Grunge Paste, Guacamole, Bora Bora, Sherbet and Lavender.

Onto the completed tiles I stamped, stencilled and experimented! 
That should actually be on a studio wall...
Stamp, Stencil and Experiment!

The scratchy circular stamps and round cog-like stamps are Ellen Vargos and
the other stamp is a JOFY mini.
These were printed in Archival inks, Jet Black, Coffee and Olive.

Painted the JOFY stamped images with a lighter version of the base colour...(top to bottom) Cheese Cake and Yellow Submarine, Antarctic and Mermaid, Moonlight and Lilac.

The only stencilled image colour is Amethyst.


Whatever I could find in my embellie stock that looked round! Oh yeah...and a little bit of Stickles and pearl glaze. Then as a finishing touch I added flicks of Bora Bora and Pewter to the whole thing before screwing the board onto the frame.

Hope you like this and if you have any questions please ask and I'll get back to you as soon as I can,
ArtymeB:) xxx.
