It is Round

The letter R was our prompt for Joggles Art Journal Adventures this week. I found a quotation by Dada Bhagwan that reads: "This world has been changing from times immemorial. But because it is round one cannot find an end to it". It inspired me to work with as many circle stencils (from different sources) as I could find and many layers of colours, finishing off with black and white. I used quite a few of my Lindy's Magicals too. It started to look like the universe.
I then went to my stack of gelli plate printed pages and punched more circles from them. They were glued onto the pages as shown to represent planets and the sun.
I hand wrote the quotation using a white marker but it didn't show up too well on the page so I also added it in black on the big circles. There is a lovely bit of gold sparkle on the pages (in an A5 journal) but sadly this is very hard to spot on the pictures.
