Happy November!
Wow! Where has the year gone? I can't believe it's November again and so little time to go before Christmas!

I've decided to take a risk and try to take part in Art Every Day Month again this year... sadly, I'm unable to promise to create every day but I'll do my best to create on some days and will try to get to a few of the participating blogs each day...  I'll also try again to make it a month of Thanksgiving! Focusing on our blessings is always and only good for all of us.

So, I'm starting November with a Circles page, just for Moo Mania &More's current challenge. I love circles, so had a quick play on an acrylic (Liquitex) smooshed background I made yesterday, just using circle stamps. I spotted the words as I was hunting for the circles and so they became flowers...again! It's not a brilliant page - the larger criss crossed circle looks so out of place - but I like the idea and will do something similar again...this one may or may not make it to my journal, though I did resize it to fit, just in case. Love the way the circle background stamp looks around the edges...and I love squiggled stems!

Why not join us just for the month? It's lots of fun and really good for your art!
Thanks for popping in
I'll be back soon

Hi ya Cath, i'm loving the outer edges too. There's always a warmth with circles always gives a hug. Such a versatile shape in it's own right it sure makes the world go round hee hee!! Like you i'm trying to get back into the swing of creativity and catching every moment. I'm not sure if there will be enough hours in the day to post but every little bit helps.
Have a great weekend Cath Hugs Tracey xx

I'm running SO far behind. Trying to catch up is harder than I anticipated.

This is a beautiful card. I also like circles and I adore how you changed the flowers so they were all different. This is a gem, dear.

Beautiful piece! Love the colors you chose.

Hi Cath. I applaud you for attempting this challenge. I have failed miserably in the past. The colors of your page are calling me. I luv-a da purple! haha Would you like some purple candy little girl? LOL My face would be on a milk cartoon in no time, geez. You've done a beautiful job. Just make simple stuff, that was my downfall, time did me in. I will pray good thoughts for you! xoxo

Love the colours you have used, that i something I always comment on with your work - you have such a great sense of what colours to use together.
I agree about the circular edging to the page - it is so warm and inviting - like a giant hug. Then there are the circles in the centre which are now flowers with their various stems - love stems that are actual words!
A fabulous beginning to the challenge.
Hugs, Neet xx
