DQS Five - Started!!

It started with the above doodle.... Circles, lines, more circles.... I don't want to do any foundation peicing for this one, its applique time!

And then sat down and doodled in Quark.... I was thinking rainbow gradiation, like giant spots of colour on plain white, something fresh and simple. It wasn't quite working and I left it up on the screen, went away and came back an hour later and thought, ahhh, just a simple line to connect the spots. And yep, I think it works.

And so to the scrap box I go! This is the fun part.
