AJ - Round


This month over at Art Journey they have chosen the theme of 'round'.  I used a cog stencil with turquoise tint (580.8) pan pastel over black card.  I cut some spellbinder circles from patterned paper and gave them a coat of watered down honey dew fresco paint.  I stamped various images onto each circle and mounted them over the cogs.  I mounted the whole piece onto white and then black at opposite corners.

Unfortunately this isn't the best photo but the weather is really dull - sorry!!!

I like the dark and mysterious feel to this Sam-seems like there is a story woven into to it somewhere. Beautiful ideas.

Love Chrissie xx

Lovely card! I like the way you used the circles as 'photo frames'. Great use of the AJ stamps, nice colors too. Thanks for taking part in our challenge!

Wonderfully haunting! I love the images built into the system of cogs and each with a different direction in their gaze. Fabulous piece!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
