Printing with Circles

Julie Booth is running a Scavenger Hunt on her blog to go with her book Fabric Printing at Home.  The first task was to find circles on objects from the kitchen and use them to print.  Sue collected a tray full of objects, but chose 3 for her printed sample.  Here's what she found:
And this is what she created:
She started with the bottom of the green plastic cup to make the first circle.
She used this wire egg beater that squishes up and down to make the spiral inside the circles.
Finally she added dots with the end of a cork from a wine bottle to complete the pattern.
Here's the finished piece and the 3 things she used to print circles.  Fun!

Elizabeth also found some circle objects to play with.  Here are her prints:
Left to right - a plastic magnifier, a small plastic plant pot, a cap from a vitamin bottle, a straw, a plastic suction cup, and a cork.  We applied the paint to these objects by dabbing it on with a sponge.  Take a look around your kitchen - see what circles you can find to print with!  And follow along on Julie's blog for the rest of the scavenger hunt - up next is "lines".
