Circles by Bernadette Ball

 Good Morning Everyone!

My project this week has been a circle themed canvas.  I have had this 8" canvas in my cupboard for ages, wanting to use it but not wanting to ruin it.  I use the #useyourstash so much on Instagram - I need to start practising what I preach!! 

I didn't bother gessoing the canvas itself, and went straight on with the crackle paste through a circle stencil.  I took 3 greyboard circles from the circles grab bag 

and gessoed them before adding the texture paste through the same stencil.  

I then used a combination of paint and sprays to colour the canvas and the greyboard circles using autumnal colours and finishing off with a bit of mica spray.

I then took a piece of ivory coloured card and added colour with the sprays I had used on the canvas and die cut some different sized circles.

Once I had die cut the circles I did some stamping using leaf rubber stamps and put a couple through my big shot in a leafy embossing folder.

Once I had decided where I was putting the circles, I took some mini clocks, painted them with black gesso and added them to the piece.
