WaterMEDIA Wednesday ~ Playing with the Gelli Arts® Printing Plate

Today I'm veering away from my watercolour sketches and sharing three prints I created with my Gelli Arts® Printing Plate. I had recently purchased some new paint, Golden Open Acrylics. They stay wet longer than regular acrylic paints and I wanted to see how they work with the Gelli® Plate. So,  I went out into my yard to find something interesting to use. Well, something that I have an overabundance of is Dandelions! A couple of these are combined with some fronds of a fern that I have in the house.

I have to say, that I had to force myself to stop after a while! This is way too much fun and ADDICTING!  I really liked using the Golden Opens for these prints.

I think I will try to put together a bit of a step by step demo one of these days here on my blog. Although there are tons of info out there on the net about Gelli® Printing!

Watercolour Wednesday ~ Colouring!

The other day I posted on my Facebook Page a sentiment that we all feel from time to time. Here's my interpretation.

May Flowers

I'm finally done my Big Tulips! I think they are very bright and cheerful, and kinda funky! Now I just have to varnish it and get it ready to hang.

A Busy Watercolour Wednesday so I'm Cheating!

I'm busy trying to get my tulip collage done today, so I'm going to cheat this one time and post one of the frogs I did as a special order last week.
Back to our regularly scheduled programming next week! (Hopefully)
