Loosen up

Last weekend while wanting to ink up the gelli plate i also wanted to cut up and collage and swoosh around some paint. I got out some crayons, markers, pens and made some marks on photocopy paper. Then rolled out the paint on the plate...

out came the scissors + blade as i chopped and sliced them up...

I was trying to let the materials lead me and found myself adding ink + paint washes..
it felt a bit like 'undoing the graphic designer within', here's what happened:

Matching your (gelli) prints...

Sometimes it's good to focus on the smaller, brighter things..
like making beads..

source a bit of fimo in some lovely colours and thread 'em up.
...put together an outfit... with optional kooky pose.

Then! realise that you really love those colours ..
(change into old gear and head to the paints). Grab gelli plate...
Print up a whole lot of sheets in ranges of colours inspired by selected outfit... slice, chop them up
collage into smaller works:

Or, just be inspired by colour combos you find ...
whether they are from your wardrobe or not.
