Sometimes there is nothing more fun (and therapeutic) than some mixed media art journaling playtime in the studio! So when I got the chance earlier this week I took advantage of a day for free play.
I started by pulling out my Gelli Arts printing plate and loaded it up with pastel pink acrylic. Then I layed some yarn down on top of the paint and pulled the first print. In this pic above you can see the print at the top and the gelli plate with the yarn and residual paint in the bottom half of the pic.
Following a few more prints to cover the paper and create some layers, I added some stenciling with more acrylic paint.
I made another page in the same manner with a different color scheme but I have had a thing for pink and red lately so this is my favorite. This is a larger piece of watercolor paper so I'm not sure what this will end up as. Maybe a journal cover, or background, or maybe for cards.
Oh - And it passed inspection as you can see below . . .
I hope you got a chance for some fun and messy art play this week.
Linking up with Paint Party Friday.
