Simon Says - We're Going Around In Circles

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I created an Art Journal page in my Dina Wakley Media Journal using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Splotches and Halftone Layering Stencils with Ranger Translucent Matte Texture Paste,  to add circles to the background, coloured with Distress Crayons and added Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Urban Layers Ephemera, Baseboard Paper Doll and Clipping Stickers.

I began by trimming Dylusions Mixed Media Card to 6" x 8.1/2" and added torn strips of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Typeset Collage Paper fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte. I added Ranger Translucent Matte Texture Paste through the Splotches Layering Stencil. Once the paste had dried, I applied a coat of Distress Collage Medium Matte over the whole panel. I scribbled Rusty Hinge, Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive Distress Crayons over the panel, working in small sections and blending the colours with my fingers.
I removed the crayon from the Texture Paste Splotches using a slightly damp kitchen towel and rubbed over the Grid Dots Layering Stencil to remove the crayon from the background and create another layer of circles.
I stamped small images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous The Professor 2 and Mini Glitch randomly on the background, inked with Black Soot Distress Archival.
I sanded the edges of Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Urban Layers Ephemera, tapped the Distress Embossing ink pad randomly on the edges, sprinkled with Rusty Hinge and Peeled Paint Embossing Glazes and heat set
I fixed the Urban Layer Ephemera in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte, added an Idea-ology Baseboard Paper Doll and stickers from the Idea-ology Clippings Sticker Book, outlined with a permanent black marker pen.
To finish I added Black Soot Distress Paint to the edges of the panel using a piece of Ranger Cut 'n Dry Foam and fixed to a burlap page in the Media Journal.
