I have also been playing with Gelli plate monoprinting but intend to make a much larger plate of real gelatin for monoprinting and I will share that fun as soon as I can! The other upcoming video is stamping on top of the prints made from everything in the two previous topics. FUN FUN FUN!!!
Of course, I can't help but share pics of all the fun I had!!! These collages were created using painted, printed and stamped deli paper and stamped palette paper. Both of these papers are fantastic and fun to work with. The palette paper (Strathmore size 12" x 16" is a little on the pricey side but the fact that you can spread around your left over paint and print on top of that without wasting a single sheet makes it very worth the cost.
It's quite the mix of imagery but what I am actually creating are more "master boards" that Traci Bautista refers to in her artwork that I mentioned in a previous post. I will create color copies of these pages from my big journal and use that to cut up and use in journal pages and other collages.
Last, but not least, I want to share a couple of adorable pics of my stinky ferret babies, Daisy and Dylan, as they sleep peacefully in their hammock (so freaking cute!!!). I still need to find them a good, loving home as they are quite the handful! The house I'm renting has seen quite a few interested parties and I may be moving earlier than I though. Stand by on that :)
