What neglected supply did I find to play with today? A roll of stiff white lace. Anything that is white in my studio begs to have some color added. But what colors?
Darker colors that I rarely use. Why? Using often ignored supplies makes playing exciting because it is almost like the supplies are new again to me.
New to Let’s Play? It’s all about how to let go and embrace the fun of artful play. Each Tuesday, there’s a new link party where I’m sharing my play and you can link up to share your play. And yes, it can be any creative play! Plus there’s a monthly $50 gift certificate giveaway!
Using the lace, you can make one color prints with a Gelli Plate® that are fast and unique like the blue ones above. The excitement builds when you start layering the colors. When you lift up the paper, there is that rush of wondering what will appear! The purple/green print is probably my favorite. It screams mermaid tails to me.
Here’s my play and I’m looking forward to seeing your play in this week’s link party!
