Something different ...

I've been working on a number of projects recently around doodles of lines and circles.  The whole idea kind of began when I needed something to do as a distraction from thinking ... I've quite a lot going on at the moment and it has been difficult to switch off.  One evening I created this:

This is hand drawn on Khandi paper using a uni pin fine line (0.5) pen.  I then took a ghost monoprint created using a Gelli plate to create a postcard to send to my son:

Still in need of distraction I decided to see if I could continue to develop this idea and create an 'embroidery'.  Whenever I have a printing session with acrylic paint and my gelli plate I always print at least one on calico ... so I took one of these prints and created this mixed media piece.

The print was created using three colours, three layers and a number of handmade stencils and masks.  The circles were then added with embroidery silk in three colours.

I'm going to enter this mixed media piece in the STAMPlorations challenge:
