I'm a Little Tea Pot...

"Circles Galore" is the new Meljen's Design challenge. I don't know if I got the "galore" part but I did fit some circles into my project. Not only is my main image on a circle shaped panel, I created a circle frame for it using my Nestabilities. I sprayed the frame with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Pearl) and it is really pretty in real life although it looks kind of splotchy in the photo. (Sorry!) I also add a round button, lots of round pearls, and some fun round-ish flowers. What do you think? Does it count for "galore?

This Fancy Little Teapot is available in the new release on Whimsy Stamps today. As a reminder, you can now get all the Meljen's Designs images at Whimsy Stamps.

Please join us in the Meljen's Designs "Circles Galore" challenge. You can see all the challenge details HERE.

Thank you for looking!

I would say it's "galore" and a bit victorian too! Love that you put the pearls around the circle and those flowers are awesome!
