I have a new art toy called the Gelli Plate, a friend got me
hooked, a gelli plate looks like squiggly jello, but it stays the
same size. You put paint on it, impress items into the paint like stencils, rubber stamps, a comb anything that is not sharp.
Put a piece of paper over it, smooth it out and voila you have a terrific background. That is what I did. But......did not like the colors, so just kept adding more paint and repeating the process. Then, I laid the paper aside. Because I did not care for the background I decided to play around.
I took some black puff fabric paint which happen to be laying on the table and drew an outline of a woman's face. The lines that I put in for the hair kind of smooched all together, I kind of like that, so I quickly went in with my fingers and a small brush and finished her face up. This was done on regular copy paper, because I "was just playing" and not trying to create anything special. Well, she is special. I love her face, her look and her attitude. Thank you for coming on this journey with me. Artfully yours.
