Gelatin - it's not just for eating!

Let me introduce you to my newest obsession


It's a Gelli plate!
With some paper and a little bit of this  
(I'm talking about the paint, ignore the beer carton) I have been printing up all kinds of fun paper to use in my art journaling, collages, card making ... and just about every other artistic endeavor that comes to mind. 

A few prints ... ok, more than a few ...





And this is only a small sampling of prints that I've pulled. 
So, what have I done so far with some of the prints? 

I have a plan to pull these pages and future ones together. I'll share that with you some other time. I've also started a 30 day ATC challenge. Here are the first three: 

I know I've only scratched the surface of what I can do with my plate and the possibilities are endless for what I can create with the prints. Meanwhile I'm on a creative high and relishing in this personal journey that many won't even understand. That's ok 'cause I'm not doing it for them, I'm doing it for me!

I Love Color!

Finished up two little projects. The first being a "doodle." It's all about shapes and colors. A little bummed that the color is not showing as bright here as it is real life. Also, I need to find something other than Sharpies to do my doodling because I'm finding the black is bleeding into my colors. 

Second project is a mixed media piece. This one gets a title: 

Under the Sea 

 I had a little help from Lyra on this piece. Maybe she is searching for little fish?
