Journeys

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.

Infusions

Recently, I went to the Crafty at Ally Pally show and did a 'make and take' with PaperArtsy. We stamped all the leaves with infusions, and the words were stamped with Distress Oxide ink (pity I can't stamp straight!).

Printing Pictures

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!

Nature

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!
