Since I didn't have a stencil with circles I decided to make my own. I used the circle shape cutter I purchased years ago from Creative Memories, and some circle punches I had. It took longer than I thought it would but was well worth it.
I love the way the layers turned out each one shows just enough to be noticed.
Thank you Donna Downey for the inspiration. I am so going to use this technique on a large canvas.
