Using my favorite medium, heavy duty scrapbook paper and my Cricut cutting machine I cut coordinating scrapbook paper into different size circles . Not sure how many I cut because I was't sure where I was going. I just wanted to have enough. My first thought was that I could layer the different circles on top of each other but noticed right away that I would need some kind of a back to it. So I looked through my Cricut cartridges and found a half moon shape that I could use for the base. I had to tweak it a bit to get the right curve that I was looking for.
This is it from the back. I cut the half moon shape twice and glued them together with mod podge so I had a nice strong base.
I then went to work stacking and layering the circles. Finishing off each one with a few coats of mod podge. It took me awhile but I had my radio on and was singing along to some tunes as I glued. I am sure it was annoying to anyone in earshot of my not so good voice but I was enjoying myself.
I started placing the circles in a pattern that was appealing to me, gluing as I went.
I decided to go with yellow because it seems to be a very popular color for the spring. Some of the circles I sanded to give that more of a rustic look and others I shaded with black to give it some dimension. I then mod podged the entire piece.
I had my daughter model it so I could see how it would look on. She was surprised at how light weight and comfortable it is. I have to say I love it. I may be doing some bigger pieces from now on.
Thanks for stopping by.
