I am way late to Elizabeth's T party today - and this will be a short one.
"Going round in circles" is the current challenge at Try it on Tuesday. I love circles, so this was a lovely opportunity for me to work in circles again. I created a spread in my art journal.
The background was created quite a while ago, it's a pink and purple spiral that I painted with acrylic colors. After it was done, I had no idea how to go on and so it sat for a few months - until this challenge came up. Suddenly I knew what to do with it. I journaled within the spiral and then added smaller circles that I cut out of the papers that I had created using the gelli plate. This became a fun project.
When I looked through my art journal and other sketchbooks I realized that I am using circles quite a lot. It is not always obvious at first sight. Years ago, when I was still scrapbooking, I loved to cut circles as well.
I created this layout 20 years ago, it is the right page of a two-page layout. And see - here is where the drink comes in. We had visited Fetzer Vineyards and had joined a tour through the garden. At the end of the tour there was some wine tasting. Of course my daughter, three years old at the time, did not get wine (what were you thinking???). She is drinking their grape juice - and you can see that she really liked it and loved drinking it out of a "grown up" glass.
These are such lovely memories. I miss her so much.
