I’ve spent a couple of hours today making more gelli prints using stencils, masks, stamps and bubble wrap. What do I do with them? I use them for collage, in my art journals, card making and even in finished art works. Some of them will end up with more paint, crayon, pen etc over the top yet.
This week’s colour is blue, and the quote’s another good one. I used Distress paints, Dylusions paints, collaged papers, Graphik pens and stencils.
Today’s artist was Gwen Lafleur her recipe for making layered collage papers. I had a lightbulb moment watching her. I use scrap paper as I paint, to wipe my brushes & brayer etc, but throw it away once it’s got a bit of paint on it. If I kept going I’d end up with the lovely detailed under-papers I admire that other artist’s share. I knew it, but not in a lived way, if you know what I mean. I loved today’s play session; these are just some of the papers I made.
