Fun To Paint Circles

I've been playing with paint and drawing circles...inspired by Roben Marie Smith, she's a wonderful artist with great on-line videos.
Here's some photos of the step-by-step process. I finger-painted some circles in an old journal book with some colorful acrylic paints.
Then I added multiple colors of paint and continued to make more layers of circles...
Afterwards I added some white paint for accents...
Then I layered more circles using white and black pens...
Now, you may be wondering what you do with all these colorful circles. I like to cut them out and add them to my projects as accents. Below I used them to embellish wrapped gifts...
My next project was in my Dylussions mini journal. I laid down several colors of acrylic paint.
 Using an old plastic gift card, I smeared the paint around.
 Then added some white paint...
I cut out some of the circles and glued them in my journal pages to create a fun background. Next I made some paper dolls using Catherine Moore Character Construction stamps, and glued them to the page. Here's my finished journal pages.
Bright colors huh? It's fun - makes me smile. 

Hope you had a great weekend!
