Inspiration can come from anywhere, including the everyday. I have walked by the tree below for weeks noticing the abundance of seed pods but it wasn’t until I was hit in the head by one of the branches that I realized how much fun they would be Gelli printing®!
Yes, my muse literally hit me in the head with this month’s theme for the Let’s Play videos. Ordinary things can be fantastic starting points for play.
What is Let’s Play? It’s all about rediscovering the ability to play. Each month I share a specific strategy that helped me recapture the freedom and fun of play. This month’s theme is being inspired by the everyday. You can see more of the Let’s Play series here.
In the video, you’ll see me Gelli printing® directly in my art journal with the layers building up to make a vibrant background!
Watch Gelli Printing with Seed Pods on YouTube.
