Sometimes when i 'step up' to the gelli plate, i have a vision, well at lest i think i do. But then as i begin it seems to take on a life of its' own. When this happens i decide to just go with it and errr. just fill the white space..
Then i cut a stencil from freezer paper and overlayed my colours.
Then i hand painted some shapes as final touches.
I stepped back - and this is what had occurred.
Sometimes it can be tricky to find one's gelli mojo. When this happens I've decided to jsut keep layering. Once i 'don't care' interesting things also happen...
|I particularly like this one as it captures the Aussie bush.|
The other weekend i thought i'd try fabric - in the form of old white pillowcases... i used the same techniques - stamping and layering
Then i cut up smaller bits for a fabric 'collage'
and now i've started stitching.. bit by bit
Using machine stitching to hold in place - then working back into the pieces,responding to what is there. Quite meditative really...
