|my favorite print|
After reading about and watching fabulous tutorials by Gelli Arts blog. I "needed" to get a Gel Printing Plate. Really love this new tool! And I've only just begun...
|My workbench AFTER some tidying|
The great thing about a 7 foot workbench...it can hold tons o' goodies to use! There are stencils, stamps, paints, brushes, texture tools and papers ALL within easy reach.
|printed butcher papers|
The butchers paper idea came from Julie Balzer. I do like the translucent quality of it and am still working at (when gluing it down) getting my papers to lie flat without wrinkling. Alas, I must practice more :-D
|color over black|
Using black paper packaging (from a stencil), is a beautiful way to recycle AND you get double creativity points too. Ha! But seriously, I am loving white and bright colors on black. You can't go wrong trying techniques and painting on something which was meant for the bin. If it turns into a disaster, well I'd still hang onto it because oftentimes a piece isn't all BAD, cut it up into tags, bookmarks or paint over it and try again.
Creating my own unique papers has my mind buzzing with possibilities? And making BIG messes that require MAJOR cleaning time is part of my process.
Have you tried Gel printing or making your own stamps or stencils? Perhaps you're tackling that sewing stash or looking for super soft yarn (for a baby blanket) to knit or crochet. I hope you have time this week to enjoy YOUR creative process!
