To begin I gathered together some supplies to create my Spin Art Circles: the spin machine (very pink- like its owner ;) ), some PaperArtsy Smoothy die cut circles, a few paint brushes and a selection of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics -Twilight (FF147), A Bit Fishy (FF208), Cloudy (FF184), Yellow Submarine (FF73), Cheesecake (FF54). It was a bright sunny unusually warm autumnal day when I started making so I think that influenced my blue/ yellow summery colour palette.
I knew there was a chance when I started to splosh/splatter that some paint could go 'astray' so I placed the spin machine inside a pizza box, the lid held open with some cardboard 'walls' to catch any 'rogue' sploshes/splatters.
I loved the results and was more than happy to welcome the addition of some splashes of green that some of the wet sploshes/splatters of blue and yellow PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics had created while spinning.
Although I loved the Spin Art Circles as they were I wondered if some subtle stamping may add just a touch of detail to some of the white spaces so I picked out a couple of PaperArtsy Mini stamps (MN72, MN108) and inks that I thought would play nicely with the style and colours of the Spin Art.
I wanted my Spin Art Circles to have some rigidity for displaying so crackled some chipboard circles with PaperArtsy Crackle Glaze (FF22) sandwiched between PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics - Twilight (FF147) and Snowflake (FF15).
The design of the rotating display stand isn't as size restrictive as the spin machine, so it offered me the opportunity to work with larger size panels of PaperArtsy Heavy Smoothy. To get around the fact that the rotating display stand doesn't have a designated space or anything to hold the card in place like the spin machine does I used some Sizzix - Sticky Grid.
As I mentioned above the same stamps / inks used on my Spin Art Circles were also used on my Art Panel background: PaperArtsy Mini stamps (MN72) with Tim Holtz- Distress Archival Ink (Speckled Egg), PaperArtsy Mini stamps (MN108) with Ranger Industries - Archival Ink (Cobalt).
