Rae Missigman was the #cjs20 artist for day 16. I love Rae’s work and her project was super cute. I know from past experience if I made a tiny book I wouldn’t use it, so opted to practice her style in my art journal instead. I’m pleased I did and know I’ll use those new skills again.
I love Rae’s art, having met her through Documented Life etc. I was super excited about trying her technique … and it wouldn’t work for me 😉 I think the crayons I have just weren’t waxy enough to resist properly. That said, I got some fabulous prints and loved some of her ideas for getting interesting marks using a Gelli plate. I have shared my fav, and it’s ghost print, below.
Today’s artist was Rae Missigman, whose work I love – I have a few of her stencils and often watch her videos. Her process has inspired mine over the years, so this was in my comfort zone. I started with gelli printing straight onto the page using Golden Fluid Acrylics, then cleaned off the stencils over the top. I added layers of Neocolours, stencilling, collage, mark making etc.
