I have been doing creative activities but not showing you them, what a meanie! So here I am with the first of what will be many posts showing you what I have been doing on this year's Creative Jump Start 2014. My long term followers may remember I took part in this online course last year when it was free. I enjoyed it so much that I thought it was worth paying for, which is what I have done this year. It didn't cost much and really gives my post-Christmas artistic mojo a good workout.
The first project I have to show you is this:
I just happened to have made myself a homemade gelli plate (using some instructions found on youtube) in December so was rather pleased that I was able to utilise it again to do the very first project of CJS14.
The acrylic paints that I used were a bit old and heavy bodied so gave very thick textured prints which is a look I happen to love!
The frame work for my prints was a magnetic flower frame that I've had for years (look at the muck on that!) and never known what to do with:
|Size wise it is about 10" across with each petal being about 4"|
You can see the texture better if I do a comparison shot between black and white and colour:
I did wreck my homemade gelli plate in the making of this creation...
(as in, after four sessions it cracked badly) so either I have to make myself another one...
Thank you for stopping by today and looking at my latest creativity.
Stop by again tomorrow where I will be showing you my next CJS14 project.
