Helga at ARTchix is having a nine-week challenge series for those who want to play along.  This week's challenge is to make a grid and play with circles and dots.  I used dye inkpads to make most of my circles/dots and to add color to some squares, too.

For the first row, left to right:

Square one:  a flat backed glass pebble was used for the green circles.  The end of a brass stencil stylus was used to make the tiny dots.

Square two:  The circle of dots is a rubber stamp; center dots were punched from green paper; chains were added with a sharpie pen.

Square three:  The end of a lipstick tube was used for the circles and a copper metallic pen used for the tiny dots in the centers.

Second row:

Square one:  A pencil eraser was used for the polka dots and a Sharpie pen to add the tiny circles.

Square two:  A bubble rubber stamp.

Square three:  A brass washer made these circles.

Third row:

Square one:  The end of a nail polish brush.

Square two:  The end of a push pin.

Square three:  Sequin waste.

Thanks for taking a look!
