I've been working on a number of projects recently around doodles of lines and circles. The whole idea kind of began when I needed something to do as a distraction from thinking ... I've quite a lot going on at the moment and it has been difficult to switch off. One evening I created this:

Still in need of distraction I decided to see if I could continue to develop this idea and create an 'embroidery'. Whenever I have a printing session with acrylic paint and my gelli plate I always print at least one on calico ... so I took one of these prints and created this mixed media piece.
The print was created using three colours, three layers and a number of handmade stencils and masks. The circles were then added with embroidery silk in three colours.
I'm going to enter this mixed media piece in the STAMPlorations challenge:
