We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Going round in crazy circles!

Firstly can I welcome new followers, and also say thank you for all the comments I receive - I love reading them and they are truly appreciated.

This week's Craft Barn challenge is about sprays, and the current Paper Artsy challenge is all about circles ...

I'm still into my Crazy bird stamps, so I sprayed a piece of card with some Dylusions sprays, stamped a load of  the birds, cut them out, and added another layer of eyes and beaks - some of those dies are soooo tiny, I keep dropping them in the waste bin and then spend ages fishing them out!

The background is Brushos blown around with my Color Spritzer, the tool that you can attach pens to, to get an airbrushed effect.  Mine is made by RenArt and I've had it for years, but I think Tim Holtz does one too. Anyway, I don't use it with pens, but it is great for blowing paint around!

I then cut a circle from a piece of sheet music to create a circular swing, and added some words from a Paper Artsy stamp set.

Maybe it is time to say happiness is singing in the rain - as we are getting rather a lot of the wet stuff!


  1. Brushos blown around with the colour spritzer is very effected, I really like that. I love the bird sitting in the ring too, fab card.

  2. Gorgeous design, love the splashed inks in the background, the design is very creative ! Cheers, Shirleyxx

  3. gorgeous chunky bluebird - what a tweet (in the old sense of the word). Simple and lovely, but I couldn't make it x

  4. Another brilliant Crazy bird card! Still resisting the birds but it is HARD... Love your background , I must try the technique with a straw.

    1. I'll probably fold as I find the set at a discount, it's just a matter of time!

  5. The Crazy Birds are such fun but I too have resisted buying them. A great card with a fabulous background to show off the image.
