Going round in circles... the theme of the current challenge at The East Wind. I try to join in with these challenges as often as I can, the images are so fabulous to colour. I must admit my mind HAS been going around in circles with this...I knew what I wanted to achieve, but couldn't make it work....I've wanted to try this 'spotlight' technique for ages, but haven't got it right... in hindsight I think it would have looked better if I'd coloured the 'grey' parts a bit darker ...although it does look a bit better IRL, there's more contrast! The die cut rings would look better if they were finer, but this was the best I could get with the dies I have! I'd welcome any constructive comments!
Thanks for visiting!
