Gelli print collage backgrounds

I am having so much fun with this!

So there they are, a few of the backgrounds I've made. Next comes more detail and some writing. I sort of want to leave them as is.

Monoprint collage

If anyone had told me that I would all but abandon crazy quilting for mono printing and collage, I would have said, "No way!". That was before I found the Gelli plate, a nifty device that makes creating very cool prints easy peasy. Here are a few of the prints I am working with.

Here is my Gelli printing workstation. 

And this is a collaged page in my art journal. I intended to use this as a background, but I might just leave it as is. I quite like it. 

Lastly, here are a few images of other pages in my journal.

Now you go make some art!

Time keeps slipping into the future

My goodness, I am a lazy an inconsistent blogger. I have good intentions, I really do. When I start a new art project I vow to photograph it every step of the way. I dream of creating a blog post that will inspire others to take my idea and run with it, having fun every step of the way. Somehow it gets away from me and before I know it I have cruised through crucial steps with no images. I don't think I am going to change. I don't even want to change. I love making art. Blogging about it, not so much. For now -- and isn't that what everything is, just for now -- when I get around to it, I will post photos of what I am working on. I encourage you to write to me, or post a comment if you would like to know how I did it. I hope you will. Even though I am lazy inconsistent, I would love to connect with you.

Here are a couple of journal pages I am working on. They are not finished. I don't know when or if they will be. I do them purely for pleasure as the whim strikes me. I hope you enjoy them.
