Card making with gelli print scraps

I’ve been making a few cards lately, because I am having a spell of letter writing. I am more likely to write letters when I am stressed and, although I am not stressed at the moment, I do have a lot on my mind. Incidentally, few things stress me – if I am stressed it usually means someone near to me is sick. My most recent cards have included layers of gelli print scraps, white gel pen, glitter glue, and texture compound through stencils.

We bloomed!

This afternoon I held a mixed media class, Layered Steps: Bloom. Liz, Mollie, Sharon, Shei, Maria and Denise were awesome. They each did such a great job with their canvas and what I love is that, following the same process, each one ended up with something unique to them. We had such a good time that there’s definitely going to be more classes coming. Here are some pictures of the process, and a line up of the artists with their finished works.

Blooming

I’ve had a good week, with a bit of time here and there to play with my art supplies. Here’s one finished piece, using collage, Gelli Plate prints, stencils, fluid acrylics, gesso etc. ┬áThis is the same process I am teaching next weekend – the class has sold out so there’ll be more classes to come.
