Mndy Lacefield provided the inspiration for week 15 at Wanderlust. Here is my whimsical girl.

I am somewhat behind with Wanderlust at the moment!
The guest artist for week 14 was Jessica Sporn whose canvas depicts the terrible journeys many refugees have to make to reach safety. Here is my own version: the lines of washi tape depicting the borders refugees have to cross; the red stencil patterns highlighting the circuitous routes refugees have to travel; and the crosses recognising that many die along the way before reaching safety. The angel is a prayer that might be protected whilst travelling.

I picked a tip up from Jamie, on his class at Wanderlust this week: place a picture underneath your Gelli Plate and then paint onto the Gelli Plate. I painted an abbey. I printed two onto backgrounds I had previously done, and then a ghost print. They are not perfect, but I really like them!

This week at Wanderlust, Kasia encouraged us to use things from nature with our Gelli Plates.
I did one print into my art journal. As suggested, I then uses various pens and crayons to finish my page.
Once I had taken my Gelli Plate print, I stamped the leaves onto another page to get their imprints.
A good experiment!

The project at Wanderlust for week 10 didn't really gel with me, but I decided to have a go anyway as it is always possible to learn. I ended up with this abstract piece. I'm not sure whether I like it not! What do you think?

Last week at Wanderlust Kasia encouraged us to use one of the backgrounds we made in week 5 (see my post on 14th February). This page used the background with the Distress Inks, and then I added painted marks and collage.
