I have been watching the Olympics during my lunch hour at work & each day I would see the events & the individuals competing in each event. The design around the individual caught my eye & I roughly sketched it because I thought it would make a fab sketch for a layout. It was a series of black circles & between them were smaller circles & swirls. Sadly I don't own any BG swirls, either in stamps or rub ons as they would have worked perfectly. The papers & embellishments are from my SC Confections Kit, the painted frame is from the SC Via Airmail kit. I used my corner rounder to scallop the large circle. I was going to use the reverse side the dots but I love this floral paper far too much & so made the smallest circle dots instead. I used a gromet & punched holes with my eyelet setter & place fuchsia pink paper behind around the two smaller circles. I used Rangers Wild Plum acrylic paint to dab on the sequin waste to create the background.
