All that we are is the result of what we have thought – Buddha

This page started out as a demo page at one of the Artvergnugen Workshop Demo Pages, I had created a simple background with acrylic paints and used my Stamps and the included templates with acrylic paints. I later hand cut out wonky circles, layered them on top of the spread and sprayed over with Liquitex Professional Spray Paints. While the Spray Paint was still wet, I lifted off areas with a paper roll and scratched off parts with the brush end to reveal more areas of the background again.

I liked the result but it looked a bit flat so I added some more dimension and interest by using the Derwent Artbars – water-soluble wax bars – in different colors around the circle patterns. I love how the Artbars pop off the acrylic paint. It was a fun, easy and fast spread, especially since the background was already there and saved my day having me feel I did something creative when I spent most of the time with paperwork.

Here is the list of what I used:

    Love your background. What was the color of the base of the page?. Did
    you cut out the circles to make a stencil and spray yellow?
    Keep up your beautiful work. I really enjoy following you.

      Nancy- the base is a background that looks like everything you see that is yellow. Then I cut out circles, masked off areas with them and sprayed over with the beautiful Blue Liquitex Spray Paint. I love to do this whenever my background doesn’t really speak to me as smaller parts of it are more interesting than bigger :)

    Such great colors! The Buddha comment is really a good one. I actually thought of s song by Pink when I read the post title. The song’s called “Are We All We Are.” Great spread! I want those stamps!

    I just got this stamp set in the mail yesterday and will share something that I create with it if I feel it is ‘worthy”. :-)
