Artful Times challenge

For the challenge this time at Artful Times the choice is,

Spots and Stripes / Circles and Straight Lines


Von and Neet always make great samples for inspiration.


This ATC just seemed to evolve as, when I started it, I wasn't sure which of the choices to make.

I painted the background with acrylic paints then I rubbed over the stripes with a baby wipe to make them blend together. That ruled out 'stripes' so I left it to dry.

In the meantime I cleared out a drawer and there were even more peel-offs waiting to be used up. My quest to use up all my peel offs isn't going very well.:(

The circles were from one sheet-the lines from another and the words from yet another sheet. I actually enjoyed using them--who would have thought that peel-offs could be fun lol.

Hope you pop over to Artful and join in the challenge.

Love Chrissie xx

  11. Hi Chrissie. Thanks for your kind words on my blog.
    I think your background is striped so you shouldn't discount it! Great idea adding those peel offs to complete your design.
    Enjoy your weekend.
