Ups and downs

Here I am with another circles blog...just because I am enjoying playing.
This time I was inspired by a colourful page in the Times colour Supplement this week. It featured a fairground girl who graduated from Oxford University and then went home to work on the family dodgems. The bright colours of my circles are cut from the dodgem cars.

I started in my journal with red lines created by painting string with London Bus and dragging it down and across the page. Next, I dipped a ribbon reel into green paint mixed from frescos and rolled that down and across. Then I stencilled some dots with Black Archival.

Next, I arranged my circles on the page and glued them, doodled around them with my black Stabilo pencil and wet some of the lines.
I thought of something to write and scribbled it with my black Fudeball pen.
Just love the combo of colours.

So, entering this into the Paperartsy challenge.
