a page a day 9 & 10

The circle theme continues ...
 day 9 ... I do have in my mind this story ... i actually have several ... that i really should commit to paper and pen ... it is a fanciful tale about 7 sister and 7 moons ... so that was in my mind when i did this page ... i kept the whole circle thing going using both large and small circles, that were made with paint and in .... i love the way it turned out ... i am starting to enjoy this process!!!

 Day 10 ... I found this fab clip art of tea cups on pinterest and i knew i had to use it in a page ... i started with a highly patterned background that i was not to fond of ... so i dripped paints down the length of it and left it to dry ... i was kind of stuck until dinner when i grabbed a napkin and knew i had to use it ... i had previously seen my friend Kathy use on a journal page ... so down it went ... i used a torn layer of white to cover and mute some of the paint and then i cut out the flowers and applied them.... and the queen? well she just demanded that she be included, and who I am to argue!

Thanks again so  much for joining my as i exercise my creative muscles and try this new to me art form!
peace love and paper!

I hope you find the time to write the story that accompanies the card. I adore the 10th card with its floral elegance and queenly silliness.

Hi Jo
When I viewed the circles I could definitely understand the nature of a story with seven sisters and then I view the page with the teacups and I say "this is so pretty".
Such different pages but both beautifully executed.
