Or was that pizza? 2:00 a.m., yes you read it right. Boing awake and decided to start Carolyn’s gelli class. Since it was 2:00 a.m. I kind of got obsessed with mostly one stencil(brain fog) and just kept using it over and over and over, but I was entranced with how it was printing for me. Different papers made their way onto the big plate. Some 80lb vellum I use as my desk cover and then for so much more. File folders, those art to borrow papers that tear out of Somerset Studio, some corrugated, a watercolor drawing I didn’t like, some other watercolor papers with glittery paint on them and a style sheet with tags and trims from a scrapbook paper and a couple scrapbook paper leftovers. Two hours and a complete mess was made.
Yes, I have rigged a small clothesline in my studio to hang wet stuff and also piled it all over the floor too.
I also discovered that I like using the brayer on the back of some of those papers to really pull the paint up through the stencil and then those I did not get jazzed about got the paint spread out with the brayer over what was already printed. Kind of like monoprint over monoprint, over, well, you get the idea…even the gelli plate at the end looked good to me so I decided it was time to quit…hopefully back to bed again and sleeping by the time you see this.
