D is for DOT.
Also know by artists as a Round.
Best know in the world as a Circle.
My favorite way of making dots is with Punchinella. Ever heard of this? Well, I didn't know what it was until two or three years ago. Then I took an art journaling class with Moira Richardson, and my whole way of looking at circles changed.
This is Moira's explanation of punchinella:
"Punchinella is the by-product of the sequin manufacturing process -- rather than let this stuff go to waste, manufacturers make this sequin waste available to the public for fabulous artistic experimentations. Lots of people use this for everything from wreath-making to stenciling in our art journals! If you haven't tried it yet -- what are you waiting for? You'll love it!"
Don't want dots on your page? Punchinella comes in different shapes.
Moira has lots of it for sale in her Etsy shop if you're interested.
Here's my index card for the week.
You can see what great dots it left on the paper. I used spray ink, but you can apply ink from stamp pads or use foam pads and paint. I might add something more to this card, but I do kinda like it just the way it is!
