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.

I'm not entirely sure why, but I decided to have a go at drawing a self-portrait. There are lots of things wrong with it, the eyes aren't quite right, my chin is too long, but overall I am pretty pleased with it. I must keep on practising, though!

Clair Bremner, was the guest artist at Wanderlust a couple of weeks ago. She uses nature as inspiration for her abstract pieces of art. I followed her inspiration, but used acrylic pens rather than acrylic paints. Here is my finished piece.
I think I will try another one at some point, but using paints next time.

I made this tag using PaperArtsy Lynne Perella stamps. I stamped one stamp several times in different places on the tag and then coloured them with Brushos & water-soluble oil pastels. I then stamped the other images onto plain manilla card stock, cut them out and stuck them onto the tag.

The guest artist at Wanderlust for week six was Amanda Grace. This is the page I created using her lesson as inspiration. The image transfer (a picture of Clare Foy as the Queen) was made using packing tape, so apologies for the shine!

The task at Wanderlust last week was to create some backgrounds for pages in the weeks to come. I created a variety.
A double-sided spread using Brushos.
Two separate pages, one with stamping, one with acrylic paint.
Distress Inks on the left-hand side and more stamping on the right-hand side.
Last but not least, just masking tape.

Well, you will have probably picked up from some of my previous posts this year that I have enrolled onto the Wanderlust Classes again. The guest artist for week 3 was Wilna Furstenberg. I thoroughly enjoyed her lesson and these are my pieces that I created following it.

Here is another dark January digital piece. And no, I'm not feeling sad, it's just artistic licence!
