Circle Happiness

This works fabulously when the paint palette is loaded with a rainbow of colors, especially if you are finished painting for the day and there is still loads of paint on the palette.  I just dipped the cardboard circle (a fancy tool – the center from an old roll of masking tape) into the paint & stamp.  I stamped on tags, I stamped on paper, and I stamped on my shirt.  The shirt one was not intended, but clumsy hands make for a colorful shirt.











I watered down some of the paint from the palette to color in some areas.  Perhaps I’ll cut some off for a junk journal page.  Who knows what I’ll use this background paper for but I had fun making it.    That’s what the art is for me, fun.  How about you?  Want more fun?  Stop by Paint Party Friday and Julie Balzer’s blog to check out some fabulous posts!

    I love seeing the creative ways people use their extra paint and I LOVE stamping with circles. I have a box full of round objects of various sizes picked from the recycling. There are so many different things you could do with this beautiful paper!

    What fun–and I absolutely love that last one with the colored areas. Sometimes those “fancy tools” make the best things 🙂

    Wheee! This looks like such fun to do. Now you have got me thinking. You should try this on a sheet of glass. How cool would that be?

    It looks so bright and colorful. very creative to use the masking tape to form the circles.

  • dawn February 4, 2012, 6:02 am

    This is so cool and colorful, LOVE LOVE the fun you had and all the results. Using leftover paint is always fun for me as well. They all came out so awesome!! Going to try this idea and circles on anything are always my favorite.

    Thanks for the tip on using masking tape, I’ve just bought my first one and prob. would have thrown it out when done. Now I will save everything because you never know when you might need it.

  • Helen Campbell February 4, 2012, 10:07 am

    Excellent way to use up that pesky left over paint. And with such a light hearted, fun result!

  • Gloria J Zucaro February 6, 2012, 11:37 pm

    How wonderful! beautiful colors! I was picturing that you rolled the tape through the individual paints, but then I guess you would really have a mess on your hands and the colors would all get smushed together and turn muddy! A brilliant idea!

  • julie February 8, 2012, 5:35 pm

    Love, love, LOVE it!

  • Lenna Young Andrews February 8, 2012, 11:12 pm
