Yesterday I got my fingers all inky, today it was an acrylic paint. I am preparing for a project and have been creating backgrounds using the monoprinting technique with an acrylic block, as per the challenge rules. I have had so much fun! It's easy to get carried away when monoprinting due to the fantastic effects that you can get using this method. I have made so many backgrounds I'm going to have a real trouble selecting my favourites. I have already started working on the cards etc, but I won't show you those just yet. In the meantime check out the backgrounds:
|I used my Big Brush pens (india ink) scribbling it on the acrylic block & spritzing with water, my handmade stencils...|
|Here I used the same method, Big Brush pens with water, Jumbo Stampendous butterflies & smaller rectangular acrylic block & the large block|
|This is what I've made today...used acrylic paint, my stencils & 2 flower stencils designed by Martina Huppertova, my new crafty friend, thank you, Martina! They are gorgeous! (Martina's website)|
|Again, acrylic paint, stencils, brayer, acrylic block...the pic on the left is an A4 cardstock that I used to clean my brayer and my stencils... This will become my art journal masterpiece, I think ;)|
|These are just papers that I created at the end with any leftover paint, same method, just regular paper. They will be great for making some card embellishments like flowers...|
I had one more set of 4 pics that I made with inks, but 'the computer says no' and I can't seem to upload them into the pic editor to add my signature. Annoying! I hate when things don't work...
I will be back soon with the cards! Goodbye for now and all the best,
