Round Robin Spread

This spread I made in the Round Robin Art Journal of Karin. I started with Some blue acrylics mixed with an Acrylic Glazing Medium and a Crafter's Workshop stencil called Mini Mayan Calendar.
I then sprayed the background with Lindy's Stamp Gang Moon Shadow spray and added some Distress Stain.
I coloured two Stampotique stamps with my trusted Copic Markers, cut them out and coloured the edges with a black Copic marker. To make sure they do not look like the're floating in air, I put some washi tape under their feet.
The quote was typed on my old trusted typewriter and I just love it's vintage look. I enhanced that by distressing the edges and using Distress ink Walnut Stain. I used some leftover strips of design paper which I stitched with my sewing machine, and then added a strip of plaster gauze which I coloured with Distress Stain.
Here's a close up of the circle made with the stencil. When drying the paint and glaze started bubbling which was a happy accident because I loved the effect and the way the spray collected in the indentations.
I hope you like my spread, I must admit I was pretty happy with it (blush). I'm now off finding challenges. If you want to know what supplies I used, check out the supply list I added. Click on the product and it will take you directly to a webshop that carries that particular item.
Have a great week, hugs Frea
