How long has it been since you fell in love?
I am up to my paint-crusted elbows in love with my Gelli plate.
Last week I spent vacation time on the lake with my other love, Mister Man, who managed to read books, take naps, and eat delicious food while I compulsively rolled paint onto the plate before I fell face forward from exhaustion. Thank goodness for that brayer that developed a squeak after about the second swipe. It is all that kept me awake.
"This is my last print," I must have announced at least a thousand times. That's what happens when you are in love. You just can't get enough.
Now that we are back home and reality has set in, I am not making gelli prints like the obsessed fool that I was. I am now trying to figure out what the heck I am going to do with this goregeous stack of paper.
This one I did a mixed media piece on canvas but naturally I forgot to photograph it before I started. I cut the bird out of a index card that I printed and used some rub ons to complete the painting.
Well, there you are until next week when we find out if the spark still holds! And I come up with some more finished products.
