SDC244/245 - Scribbles/Circles


This is a combined entry as I missed the deadline for scribbles, it only seem wright to combine the
 two challenges and actually they do go well together.
Anyhow, here goes.

This week Kristen Catalano is our hostess and she has challenged us to a "Circle" challenge, here is what Kristen says about this challenge:

"I love to use circles in my projects, so this week I am challenging you to get creative and show us what you can do with circles in your project"

 My vision of scribbles is slightly different to the DT's version of scribbles, in my mind I see a mass of well  jumbled scribble! lines and disorganised mess.
Circles are easier, round, solid, hollow, large and small even bubbles.
Now to combine the two.
This is what  I came up with, a little book/journal using the new stamps I had delivered last month.
Yeah, using my new stamps at last.
I have a thing at the moment for homemade books but haven't gotten around to posting about them yet, I will eventually with measurements and details.

I began with a piece of watercolour card and made a cover by first cutting to the correct size then scoring at various points. Stamping followed using archival ink then masking fluid on the stamped images to retain the white paper beneath.

Mini ink pads were pressed directly onto the card and spritzed with water to make the colours run and blend then dried. The masking fluid was removed and the images coloured with watercolour pencils.

Scribbles and doodles in white/black marker pens were added to the background.
Signatures were added using ribbon and threaded through  the punched holes, a small pocket was formed in the cover and more ribbon created a mechanism to keep the book closed.



 And inside.

So hope you like this entry, if you would like to see more inspiration pop on over to the Stampotique blog here.
