The latest Craft Barn Alpha Challenge has us turning to the W page of our dictionaries... but we also have to use circles in our background... Hmmm.
My first thought was 'wheels' with the children's song 'the wheels on the bus go round and round' but someone else has done that, so I went back to the drawing board...
In the end I decided on "world" as I have a Paper Inspiration stamp of a world map.
I forgot to take many photos along the way this time!
I painted the double spread page with paint - I used Lake Kaisercolor and also some Sky Fresco over the top, before blending a bit more Lake over that...
Now for the circles... I went for some circles stencilled using Fresco paint, (Squid Ink, what a lush colour!) and "bumped" with Snowflake.
I took "the journey awakens the soul" (Tim Holtz) and stamped in black archival.
I masked my dictionary definition and sprayed some blue patina perfect pearls spray over the whole page to blend in the stencilling a little, and also gives a nice shimmer in real life.
