Helgas circle challenge

Helga, of Artchix fame, has posted a new challenge on her artistic life blog. This is the first of a series of nine. Without thinking too much so that you can better develop a sense of fun in your artwork the challenge was to use circles. This is my offering.

The backgrounds were made by using stamp pads to apply the colour directly on to the paper, watercolour or watercolour crayon. To make the patterns from top left to right I used a rubber wine bottle stopper, a stamp pad and a cotton reel. In the middle I used a gel pen to draw the circles, 2 different pill packs and a rubber stamp with bubbles. On the bottom again from left to right I used a sponge dauber, watercolours and gel pens to draw the “faces” and finally a piece of bubble wrap.

  1. Fantastic dots and circles, Carol! Thanks so much for playing in this fun challenge! Hold onto your grid….you’re going to need it for the next challenge which I’ll post on Wed. : )

  2. And the great Circle of Life is everywhere!!! I think these are lovely Carol.


  3. Circles hold such importance in life. I love what you have done and it looks like you had great fun!

  4. Thank you, Carol, for sharing these ideas. When I was working on my art journal, I was always trying to think of different ways to do backgrounds. This is so useful. I have ordered a Moleskine artist journal and it should be here any day now. I will try these ideas out.

Please let me know what you think about this post, I welcome your thoughts
