Hey... more circles for Paperartsy

The Hotpicks plate with the clocks was one of my favourites from the last Paperartsy release, and I had some fun on a canvas for the Circles challenge that closes tomorrow. I loved Ruth's stencilled circles from Friday's post,  although this is nothing like it, (apart from the stencilled circles!)

I had in fact already stencilled heavy gloss gel through a Memory Box stencil on a small canvas, and painted it..

 with Bougainvillea Fresco - I love this bright vibrant magenta pink!  The paint did dull the gloss of the gel down a little too much, so I carefully replaced the stencil and added another of gel over the circles to re-emphasise the gloss.

I stamped some of the blobby circles from EEV06 in plum archival
round the gel circles.

I had been playing with a  brayered tissue background and the column of clocks (HP1502) for another (secret!) project.. and had plenty left over.
I tore them out and glued them to the corners of my canvas, and then stamped the row of small circles from HP1504 in Bougainvillea fresco, round the whole canvas as a border

and then stamped the "hey wait for me" (HP1502) a single clock (HP1107 - the clockwork birds set) and the wings (ID09) on some more of my spare tissue and cut them out

I like the impression of the clock (time flying for real), calling out to the rest of the clocks, "hey wait for me.... "

Entering this to the Paperartsy circles challenge here

I too lope that vibrant pink Helen, might be a colour I need to pick up tomorrow, I don't think PA are there but one of the others stands usually carry some of their products.
