Determined-- THANK YOU ALL!

First, I want to thank all of you who have visited and posted on my blog, it means the world to me to get the positive

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.
