Mini Circle Series Little Art Book

Mini Circle Series Little Art Book

In August I got it in my head to make a little art book filled with Circle Series pieces. I hadn’t done any Circle Series pieces for a while, so I thought I’d do some mini ones to get the ball rolling. When I started making Circle Series pieces over 10 years ago, it was meant to be very loose and free, but as more and more pieces have been made, I started to be more intimidated that they had to be perfect, which was the direct opposite of the original intention. Working in a small size would hopefully be less intimidating and I could combine it with another love, small art books.

I went to my studio and grabbed a piece of watercolor paper, cut it and folded so each page was a square, accordion style.

Here’s the first piece I made for the #robayrecircleseries little book. The piece that got the ball rolling. The collage element, features in the process shot a few posts back, was made from vintage men’s magazines from the 70s. If you are interested to s

I had been cutting from a stack of 60s men’s magazines a lot at the time

and I was working on practicing my embroidery stitches at the time

Aaaaaaand finally, the last mini #robayrecircleseries from my #littleartbook. I can’t remember if I mentioned before but I thought it was so weird that this series had a blue theme when I don’t think of it as a color I am drawn to in my work. You can see

I saved this one for last, as I had a general idea of what I wanted to do
