Printing

25th February 2015

Started my creative day by cutting out shapes from a cloth I bought from a charity shop using my soldering iron......


......sorted oddments of lace....


....tried 2 of my new colours...


.....ooops, forgot to take photos!

I placed the lace and some small fluffy feathers on the Gelli plate and printed on silver tissue....


....not very successful...

....a better result with a thicker piece of lace.....


.....placed my embroidered flower on the Gelli then added white/berry with a brush....


...didn't like the result so found a wooden block and over printed!




Love these colours...


....used a cardboard comb instead of a roller to blend...


....quite like this....


....roller spread the remaining paint and pressed on bubble wrap....


....over printed which has taken away the white of the paper....


.....printed a base of mixed greens, placed on leaves embroidery and added some metallic paint...


....pressed the green over, removed the lace....


...took another print....


....rather like this one!

Also started another little project ready for my Cornwall course but will share this tomorrow.....
