I am doing so many different things at the same time, without having enough time to finish anything, so you can imagine how my worktable looks. Actually, my worktable is spreading out over the entire kitchentable ... ;-)
Just a quick overview of what I've been up to the last few days:
First of all, I finally played (a little bit) with my gelliplate again. I didn't really have time, but I squeezed in 10 minutes just before bed last night to try out some printing plates I had made. And now I'm all excited to try out some more ...
These are the printing plates I made: one with tacky glue and the other ones with craft foam:
And these are the prints I pulled from them:
Okay, it's not much, I admit, but I'm excited about the possibilities. The ones with the craft foam gave really good prints, the one with the tacky glue was very interesting but the glue wasn't as 3D as I had hoped. I tried to make a printing plate with my (tiny and very cheap) gluegun, that I had never used before, but I find it very hard to make a figure with that glue. There were blobs everywhere and when I stopped there were still long threads coming off it that I didn't really want on there. But it was much more elevated than the tacky glue, so maybe I should try again.
I also managed to paint a little bit and started to bring out the figures that I saw in my new painting.
I found another figure in there and decided not to bring out the face that I saw last week. Still in doubt about the 2 birds. Tomorrow is the only day I will be able to paint this week, so I hope I'll get a lot done, and hopefully can show you some more on Friday.
And I finished preparing another canvas for a doodle-like painting like last week, and made a drawing on there last night when I was sitting with my daughter on her bed:
And, oh yes, I started painting some new boxes for a market in 3 weeks:
That's about it. Lots of in-progress works, and itching to get back to it, but too many meetings and too much work this week, boohoo.
I'll be back on Friday with hopefully something more to show ... Thanks so much for being here, and leaving your lovely comments ♥
