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.

I am entering this in the challenge on
1. Smon Says Stamp and show - something-messy- real messy!

  1. Wow... now I start to see the Gelli plate in new light - what gorgeous, gorgeous prints! The third one down, with the delicate pinks and greens is just heavenly! I'd love to come and take a class from you...

  2. Spijtig dat ik hier niets van begrijp maar het ziet er wel leuk uit als achtergronden!!!


  3. wow, dit is allemaal maar 1x in de gelly plate gelegd met verf en een template? Wat ontzettend goed gelukt zeg!! Schitterend! Sommige achtergronden zijn gewoon al kaarten, een tekst erop en je hebt een prachtige kaart!

  4. wow prachtige monoprints, handig ook om die stencils even tegen de muur te plakken,haha. Ik ben ook helemaal verslaafd aan de gelliplaat, zo leuk!
