Circles without lines

I have called this circles without lines because I have created circles without drawing the outlines. It is another trick of the eye where we figure out that these shapes are circles.

I started by cutting out various sized circles into a couple of pieces of A4 card.

I used these circles to dab paint through, stamp through and stencil through.
I chose a selection of PA fresco paints and archival inks.
By dabbing the paint and ink through making it stronger at one side, it gave the illusion of 3D.
I have used PA stamps also for a little text interest.
The hardest thing was balancing the composition and keeping the white background clean.
Pleased with the finished result....has endless possibilities!

I am entering this into the PA challenge.


  1. Oooh fabulous, love the white xx

  2. I really admire the way you kept the white clean!!! I am the world's worst for messing up everything by getting paint where it shouldn't be! All in all this looks really fabulous! I adore illusions like this of 3D. Great work, Hazel. You never fail to inspire! xxx

  3. This just turned out brilliantly


  4. That is just so cool! Love it! (I understand this one :) )

  5. A beautiful result.. Also a very interesting technique and way of building easily a great card!!! Very clever work as previous dear Hazel. Hugs, Coco xxx

  6. Really like this, it looks simple but it's a clever idea and it looks beautiful!
