For the shapes mixed media challenge brief I got to create with the versatile Epiphany range of products; and it is these she has taken her direct inspiration from. I chose to use one of the range of self adhesive buttons. The round buttons coordinated perfectly with one of my favourite Crafters Workshop templates.
I took direct inspiration from the shape of these Epiphany buttons and used the circle design to inspire through the whole creative process of my layout.
Using gesso in a mist bottle I first sprayed a combination of funky circle patterns on to my background.
Then using The Crafters Workshop circle explosion template and Tattered Angels chalk Chalkboard glimmer mist, I created an 'explosion' of circles over the top of the funky gesso circle pattern.
This is how the background looked after drying. It is just the perfect complement to the Epiphany button embellishments.
Well thats it from me for the mo I do hope you have a fabulous weekend :)
