Gelli Plate Love

Monoprints are so much fun, done on a Gelli plate. I’ve been having fun with masks and layers:

FlowerPrintThe first print was a flower on a fall-colored background. Co-Mo Sketch paper was the substrate, and it’s not really designed for the heavier work.

LeafPrintI stayed with the same color family do start this branch of leaves print. The batik-y look is appealing to me.

BranchesPrintThis layer of color for the branches covered with a lighter layer on top is the reverse of what is expected. The contrast is fun, a combination of fall and the winter to come.

HousesPrintThis group of houses on a windy hill with woods was fun to make. I”m working on adding some recognizable elements into abstract designs. It’s a wonderful challenge that allows for a lot of experimentation. And experimentation is what creativity is about.

Have a creative week!

Quinn McDonald should have been making samples for upcoming classes, but the Gelli plate sang to her and she digressed.
