Helgas Artchix yahoo group challenge

this week was to make a piece of art just making it with circles and dots. Not to think about it just do..

Here is my effort. I used my Caran Dache watercolor crayons for some of the backgrounds, the first was a bottle top painted and stamped randomly over the crayon. I added the clock with a trusty gel pen. Next was painted and then a Hero Arts dot stamp, 3rd top was watercolor crayons again and flowers drawn as circles and dots for stamens. hmmmmm base leaves not so good. Next row was a peice of scrapbook paper, then three rows of circle masks which I wiped over with Ancient Page ink and then drew in the black ones. Next was watercolor crayons again and drew various color circles with different permanent markers. Third row was painted and then two different circle stamps I have,  that I love for zetti work, next was paint again and my large scroll stamp that I drew the scrolls out to make circles, added some gold rings with pen, the last one is just straight black paint on bubble wrap and pressed directly onto the watercolor paper. You can see more of the entries here.  or at least see what it was all about.

While I was playing with this I made an ATC from scraps on my desk for Paperarts group for the Winner Takes All. Here she is.

She's made of bits left over from the Spooky book pages. I had skulls and skeletons etc lying around. Hey, my motto "I'm creative you can't expect me to be neat too!!" so the song "Dem bones dem bones dem dry bones now hear da Word of the Lord " was ringing in my ears and an ATC was born....

I have been home from work for over a week, pity I have not been in a good space to do more artwork, but....... its not good being unwell and home, doesn't make for good playing time. But I am off to Elizas on Friday for our belated play day where we hope to finish our frame books  that we got from Jen C. I know Bevlea is finished hers and made a slide of it. Hers looks fabulous and I cant wait to see it.
Today I unpacked a box of photos and stuff I had just re packed to find photos of Geoffs mum etc to scan to finish my frame book. Hmmm, loads of photos in that box that I need to do something with apart from carting them round the world in a box..........Oh well another day. But was good to see photos of my own rugrats etc, gosh were they that little...........
