While enjoying the warmer sunny days, there is always the joy of exploring nature. I am a nature-minded person, so I enjoy it to the full!
Background has been made with a gelliplate and Nuance powders.
I've used a stamping tool, to first stamp the image. I filled the image with white acrylic paint, let it dry, and stamped the image again. I stamped the image in the background with second-generation stamping.
I added some color to the centres of the flowers with coloring pencils.
Happy to be up on the Art Anthology blog again today, with some happy collaging with monoprints. ..I am showing you what to do with all these beautiful papers lying around in your studio, gathering dust!
When making monoprints (or gelliprints), you end up with a lot of beautiful papers! Colorful, shiny, textural happy paper…
..even the papers you’ve used to cleanup your brayer, are very useful to collage with, or use them as backgrounds.
I’ve used this one to create an art journal page…
...and went through stages, changing plans, (I had to, as a full cup of coffee went over the project; I was not happy with that person, you might guess !)
…and ended up with a colorful page with stenciling and layersof stamping and colors.
I've made a new workshop, called WS0003 RESIST,
to be taught here at my house;
I might have done a few sessions of it by the time
you read this post. (it´s 21/8 today) ....
It's always fun to teach workshops in making backgrounds and complete it with beautiful stamps!
This is one of the samples I've made for the workshop, but the candidates can use any (Magenta) stamps after making the background.
There's different extra's too, different colors, and tips to change it or make the technique work better.
Still not sure what the substrate will be we will be working on .. I have to give that a think!
