Gelli Plating Madness

Gelli Journal Pages

I spent last Saturday afternoon making gelli plate journal pages with a friend. Wine was involved which made things even more fun. But it was quite the workout! I work in my loft which is the third floor of the house so the air conditioning never makes it up here. It was over 30 degrees and we had the fan out but it was a sweaty business with all of the rolling and pushing and painting. Who knew that art was exercise too!? These pages were made for a round robin journal I’m participating in with some art friends. I’ll show it off once it returns home to me.

Blue faces with found poetry

Above are a set of found poetry ATCs on their way to a new home across the ocean. I love found poetry. My found poems are usually ridiculous and rude. It can be so silly and fun though these ones were a bit more serious. You never know a stranger’s sense of humor so best to keep it banal and light. These are watercolor and marker on some sort of weird paper I found in my drawer. It was almost like linen. Very strange to work on.

Happy weekend to everyone! I hope yours is warm and fun 🙂
