This is what I did in LB 2014 this week. I did not finish a lesson with Tamara LaPorte on spray inks a few weeks ago, so I decided to used the face I drew for that class in this weeks lesson by Anna Dabrowska...what an amazing class!
I do love playing with my gelli plate. I recently painted fabric and made an art quilt. It may look familiar because i did the same design in paper last year. I have also made a throw pillow usinging my gelli plate to create the fabric first!
Yesterday I painted some canvas fabric....I used masking tape to section off some areas, so I could do some color blocking. I had a background that I made a while back, so I thought I would challenge myself and used the painted tape, that I removed from the fabric, to create some flowers...I had to add a few paper scraps for three of the flowers, because I ran out of tape... and the circles are masks from a gelli plate project!
It was inspired by Carla Sonheim's class on LB2014. Making it was such fun!
It's only January 1 and I am so tired of cold and snow! So, yesterday I decided to make flowers! My background is Dylusions ink sprays. My flowers and stems were cut from gelli print papers I have collected. I was inspired by Traci Bautisca's work!....think spring and stay warm!
I was playing with some spray inks in my journal and put down more than I intended. I took a piece of water color paper and put it on top and absorbed some of the ink. I liked how it looked so I drew a face on it. I colored her hair and the remaining background with distress inks and added some collage. Here is the beginning and finished piece.
