My new full time career in art is about to begin, I'm really looking forward to being able to get some of the ideas that keep spinning around in my head out and onto paper. I started today by making some gelatine prints, something that I haven't made for awhile. I'm thinking that might become a workshop in the new year.
I will now be concentrating on more teaching and I'm hoping to start creating some online classes too.
I haven't been near my jewellery table for around a month, now that's all about to change as well.
These prints were made on paper, the second pair show how I made a blue print on the left, then did a second print which was lighter. When it was dry I overprinted it with a similar design in a rust colour.
These prints were made on fabric. I used my Indian wood blocks for the top four. They look so old and almost Japanese. I love how all the flaws in the gelatine plate add interest. The bottom left was made using a paper doily and the right used some of my pomegranate cut outs.
Our Altered Books and Beyond group are having our Christmas get together on Tuesday night so I've been putting together some little gift packs to hand out. Each one has a small heart decoration made from my fabric papers.
I'll be back soon, blogging more now I hope.
