Round and Round by Sue

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Good morning and happy Friday. It's Sue here and I'm really happy to be sharing my piece for our fun Round and Round challenge.

I started by making an inky background with some stencils and Distress Inks.

Then I die cut some circles to stamp through. Is this a stencil or a mask, I'm not quite sure, but it does both so it could be a stask or a maskil. Anyway I stamped the lovely Lost Coast Designs Chloe Collage through it with some Wendy Vecchi gray ink.

Then I stamped other images from Leonardo's Accessories Set  in brown and plum.

 Now it was time for the scarey bit! I outlined all of my circles with a black Stabilo pencil then hit it with the water spray. The watercolour pencil spread out beautifully, I just blotted with kitchen towel before it ran all over the page. I also did a little gentle splatter with other watercolour pencils.

And there we are, all done and sewn into my journal.
 There's still a week left for you to join in with our challenge.  Link up your stamped makes featuring circles for a chance to win Lost Coast Dollars!!
Have a great weekend, and thanks very much for looking x


  1. I love this Sue.. Stask or Maskil what fun hee heee!!! Either way it does the job magnificently.
    Love how the pen bleeds around the image, those pens are fab little watercolours in disguise.
    Happy Weekend Hugs Tracey xx

  2. Looks like an authentic Da Vinci notebook page... Great work Sue!

  3. Fabulous page. Love how you used the stencil and then masked with the circles for stamping. Like Craftyfield says, looks very authentic. Love it. Hugz
