Taking it up to the Second Floor

Hey all!
I had a great time yesterday playing with... circles! That's the subject of the latest Second Floor challenge by Nathaly Kalbach and Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.  

Je me suis bien amusée hier à jouer avec... des cercles! C'est le thème du dernier challenge Second Floor de Nathalie Kalbach et Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.

Journaling: 'What goes around comes around.'
Journaling: 'On récolte ce qu'on sème.'

A couple of pictures of the making of... on all of the 4 layers of acrylic paint, i played with circles: using water as a resist, scraping, stamping, applying molding paste over a circle mask and applying paint over a punchanella. Awesome fun!  
Quelques photos de la construction de la page... sur toutes les couches d'acrylique (4 en tout), j'ai joué avec des cercles: en utilisant de l'eau comme resist, en grattant, en tamponnant, avec de la pâte à modelé par- dessus un masque à cercles et de la peinture par-dessus un punchanella! C'est génial à faire!

Go and give it a try, let it take you out of your comfort zone and enjoy the ride! But before you do that: i'd love to know you came by :)))
 Allez-y, essayez, laissez ce jeu vous sortir de votre zone de confort et savourez le voyage! Mais avant de faire ça, un petit coucou de votre part me ferait plaisir :)))

  6. Love the colors and the swirls and circles. Wonderful design!

  7. Tres belle! J'adore les pages avec le cercles!!

  8. Love your use of colour & the depth you get with the layering of stencils. I have yet to journal as I had wondered what the fuss was all about but your work has made me reconsider that viewpoint.

    If I can manage the time & energy it would be a more relaxing creative experience. I tend toward perfectionism and, since what I physically produce falls short of my expectations, I tend not to put paint to paper/canvas. I'm also in the middle of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's free stencilling course & that's providing an added incentive to play more with paint.
