Hallo, a good day to all of you!
Ellie Knol here today,
showing you what to do with all these beautiful papers
lying around in your studio, gathering dust!
When making monoprints (or gelliprints), you end up with a lot of beautiful papers! Colorful, shiny, textural happy paper…
..even the papers you’ve used to cleanup your brayer, are very useful to collage with, or use them as backgrounds.
I’ve used this one to create an art journal page… and went through stages, changing plans,
(I had to, as a full cup of coffee went over the project; I was not happy with that person, you might guess ! He said afterwards that he only added some depth to it 🙂 )
…and ended up with a colorful page with stenciling and layers of stamping and colors.
For al the stages it went through, please see the SNAPGUIDE:
And while making monoprints, you sometimes have paint on a stamp, after making marks with it on the gelliplate?
Use it to make a one-of-a-kind background!!
Have a play and show it to us on our Facebook group Art Anthology’s Adventures in Art !
