Ok, so I'm a complete copycat! I have been inspired by these two wonderful posts here and here and decided to have a go myself!
Upon looking back at the above two posts, mine's pretty crappy in comparison! Oops....
I had a LOT of trouble with colours and actually applied a few new layers on the purple, magenta and orange. Dramas!
This was for a birthday present for my friend Leanne. I feel terrible that it's not perfect, but she seemed to like it.
I'd really like to do one again to put on a wall of prints in our new bedroom!
A blank canvas in your desired size
A base colour
A variety of acrylic paints
a circular stencil to trace your circles (I used a medicine cup!)
Paint your canvas with a roller. Make sure you do 2 coats!
Measure the diameter of your circle stencil, then halve it. Mine was 4.4cm so I needed to make 2.2cm squares. Rule up your grid! Lightly...
Then, using your grid as a guide, draw your circles
Here they are all drawn up, now it's time to paint!
Work one colour at a time, be random and have fun!
Depending what day it is, you may see this post featured at any of these wonderful parties!!
