' Circle of Life ' for Happy Daze

The focus this month is on The Olympic Rings, actually anything with Circles works for us here at Happy Daze.  It got me thinking about the Circle of Life, not the song from The Lion King although thats a fab song but the actual journey of life from beginning to the end.


 Products used:  Distress Inks, Stickles, Paint Dabber and a Bottle Top.   Stamps  by  Teesha Moore and Scrolls Work.


We are so lucky that we can express ourselves through the crafting/art medium which reveals many layers of our character.  Oooh am getting a bit deep here, but believe me if I was to explain all my reasons for creating this ATC you would drop off to sleep..............lol


Anyways we want to see how you  use circles in your projects, whether its journal pages, circle shaped cards etc, as long as theres a circle in it you have a chance to win a £15 voucher.  For full details and inspiration from the rest of the team pop over to the Happy Daze blog.

Had to schedule this post as will be in Surrey for a big family get together this weekend, about 70 of us if all goes well with my Mum and won't be back until Sunday evening but will catch up with you all on Monday.

Wishing you a very Happy Sunday and take care of yourselves, hugs Annette x

This is SO pretty!

Faye said...

Such gorgeous colors, Netty! Love the contrast.

Healing Woman said...

Yes, I agree. We as artists do travel through many layers in order discover ourselves at the beginning sometimes. Your eye in the center seems to draw attention to our all knowing center. The higher self.

I like this one a lot.

Have a fun weekend..70 people! Wow..sounds like my kind of party.
