Clean and simple this time!

I sponged only a certain part of the card, dropped some water on it, and stamped the images. To get the flowers this way, I used some bleach.

I've been playing...

with the beautiful flower... and gesso, and shrink plastic... 
 2 ATC's and a card! 

The smaller flowers were made from shrink plastic. 

I used some torn scrappapers and covered that with watered down gesso, to get this background. 

I had fun!

Monoprinting - my new (good) addiction...

I had so much fun doing some (more-than-100-pages) monoprints in two sessions, on Monday and Tuesday!
It was so much fun.
I made some more yesterday, trying out some other types of paints/inks. I
must say, I like working with acrylic paint (and water!) most!

NOTE - These are all real monoprints, printed once, not a lot of layers...




One of them with some close-ups:




My "workdesk" in the kitchen.
The gelatine plate turned green already after the first session.


 Stencils on the wall.... hehe

So messy, but so much fun.
TIP - before you start - see to it that you have everything you need ready.
