Spinnin' Round and Round And Round


I am so punny but I couldn't help myself, the layout... full of circles, the topic... a spinning ride, the carnival theme...  Simon Says Stamp,  the sketch... Scrap Around the World.





Supplies: water colour paper (Canson), gelatos (Faber-Castell), ink (Tsukinenko), blk paint (Plaid)Blue chipboard letters (K and Company), blk chipboard letters and stars (Heidi Swapp), chevron cut file (Chic Tags), Silhouette cutter, marker (Sharpie), pen and liquid glass (CTMH)


I went a little freestyle with this one.  For my base, I  started with a 12' x 12' piece of watercolour paper because I knew I would be painting my background.  I used gelatos and paint with chipboards and chevron Silhouette cuts from Chic Tags.  You would not believe how easy it is to colour chipboard with gelatos.  Love, love , lovin' that medium.  I finished off the stars with a bit of liquid glass to add a little shine.

While I didn't enter this layout in either challenge, for inspiration I used the sketch from Scrap Around the World's August Challenge #4





 


and the carnival theme from Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

TTFN,
