It’s been a long since I did anything artistic, so this week, armed with rollers, stamps a Gelli plate and of course there’s no printing without paints (I used acrylics!)!
I have to admit, I am not the most patient person, and so waiting literally for paint to dry before moving on to the next stage proved somewhat tricky – but after a cup of coffee, and a lunch break in between I ended with a great final product. I am so pleased with the results (made some cards for my lovely friends and family) and generally just had a lovely afternoon.
Making and Creating
After getting out EVERY stamp to see all of my options (which later led to crippling indecision) I started by rolling out the paints and basically just giving it a go – trying things out and messing around with colours and paints, with sequin waste and bubble wrap.
The Final Product
Many attempts later, a couple of videos watched and a lot of things tried out I ended up with four A4 prints for me to cut up or just use later, and six cards (which are shown at the top of the post) – I hope you like them!
So I might never be Monet (or some artist that actually did printing), but it was a lotta lotta fun – and what’s better than an afternoon drinking coffee, playing with paints, and enjoying yourself?
This bubble wrap was a byproduct of the art, I used it to make textures in the prints. I just loved the colours in it – bright and mixed and wonderful so I thought I would share a picture of it!
Have a wonderful week,
