Remember mood rings? I thought they were so magical when I was a kid. Well, I think my art journal is my newest mood ring. I was feeling happy, really happy, almost like I was on top of the world. It was a really great day.
I grabbed a stack of Gelli Plate printing leftovers and started collaging. No idea where it was going but it certainly reflected my mood – bright and happy!
Started with random gluing of bits of Gelli prints. I save all my scraps and bits for just this kind of thing.
Since I couldn’t, or wouldn’t, wait for the gel medium to dry thoroughly, I had to use acrylic ink to write on the pages.
A bit of oil pastels for even more color, as if it was lacking in color before…
A playful stencil by Dina Wakely in a color I seem to not use very often, red.
The words were the icing on the happy cake today. I had the paper I printed the words on forever and at long last used them! That is a priceless feeling for me!
Why am I in such a happy mood? My latest workshop, Gelli Printing! It starts in 2 weeks and my studio is overflowing with Gelli prints. Every time I walk into the studio I see stacks of color and pattern and I can’t hold the smiles in!
