July Sketchbook Challenge - circles


I started this art journal page after I saw a great idea from my teacher, Moira Richardson.  She put different little metal gears on the page and then sprayed paint over them.  How neat.


So I went into my DH's stash of nuts and bolts.  I found some washers and such, laid them down in my journal, and used two colors of spray paint to develop my background.  I wasn't sure what to do next, so I got up and left it alone.  When I was reminded of the circles for this month's Sketchbook Challenge, I had a theme for my page.  

I cut out a bunch of circles with my hole cutter, added washi tape, stencils and some sheet music.  And I was set.  Love the blue and brown together...

Cute! I love the look of the page as a whole and that color combination is great. Sort of a combination of texture and pattern that looks so nicely together!

I love the blue and brown, too. The repetition of circles is really interesting.

I like how you used the washers to leave that mark. Blends together nicely.
