July Challenge - Have Fun With Circles

 Welcome everyone to our July Challenge

This months theme was chosen by Hazel so let's all Have Fun With Circles

Hi there, Hazel here, kicking off this month's topic which I have had the privilege of choosing. Fun With Circles!
Love them, satisfying, enduring, versatile, just fun! I hope that you will join in with us this month. I have used circles of paint and stamping on top. To explore the details, please hop over to my blog.

For our July Challenge I have created a birthday card with circles. If you want to know more about this card, please visit my blog! Thank you and happy crafting!!!

The new theme at Country View Crafts Challenges this month was perfect for me! Circles – I love them! They are ideal as a frame for an image or to contain a sentiment or to add a little movement to backgrounds. For my first piece this month I wanted to practice the clean and simple backgrounds many of you do that I so admire. I used stamped circles (from Emma Godfrey) as my background in my journal and as a frame for my sentiment. Su (the name for my phrenology head) is doing a good job keeping her crown of greenery on! As always there is more on my blog. Gabrielle x

Hello everyone,
Corrie here with the first of two inspiration pieces for Hazel's fun 'circles' challenge. I hope you play along with us.
This is a little art journal page with lots of circles... if you want to know how I made this then hop over to my blog HERE
I'll be back later in the month ! 

I have created a textured canvas today using texture paste and Deco Art paint. This was definitely one of those projects where I started with no fixed plan and just enjoyed the journey. More details over at Addicted to Art today.


Welcome to July when summer will soon be in full swing. I decided to let my cute style out to play this month for Hazel's "have fun with  circles" challenge......I used lots and lots and if you want to see exactly how many pop on over to my blog here where I will reveal all.

Living up to my 'last minute Sue' tag I've made a birthday, and a Father's Day card. One has gone in the post on the way to the airport, and the other has gone in my suitcase. I'm really enjoying using my Distress Paints, I think the Distress Crayons have given them a new lease of life. For more details wing you way over to my blog, and have a fun week.

My card box seems a bit depleted at the moment so I thought it was time to start adding some more back in. Having come across a Prima paper pack recently on one of my shelves I decided to use these clocks from it for my circles and used a mop up tag to mount them on. I really must use patterned papers more often to get some cards done for special occasions throughout the year

I have had fun playing with painty circles in my make for this months challenge - I have a step by step on my blog here if you would like to see how I made my card.
