Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
Thanks for the lovely comments about my throat and broken washing machine... the end of the week was almost a broken pc too - but all is well..big sigh of relief... so next week I think will be a much better week.
There's still a couple days left to join in with Erika from BioArtGal theme 'Tell me a story' for AJJ this month. I was going to post a different page today but then I thought it was a bit a mean and I should show the final part of 'The Caretaker' story.
Other than my inky background and original caretaker artwork from one of my journals the rest is digital.
I was asked the other day if I had used my Gelli plate again... I confess I am scared of it (in case I ruin it) and only used it once. I had 2 as a present the Christmas before last and only tried the smaller one. So I got all of my bits out like the book recommended but got no further... I couldn't find my old brayer. Actually that's not strictly true, I found the more expensive one I keep for inks and didn't want to ruin that either (bit of a pattern developing here).
Dave thought I was daft and should have used that one and bought another...
ok so that's decided then... next opportunity I will go for it and have some messy fun!
It's still unfinished, but this is what I managed so far...
I think I should have stuck to pastel sticks/pencil too as I tried Panpastels on this surface as well and they were awkward to blend.
Lots to learn I think - if you use it I would love to know your thoughts/tips - thank you.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hope next week is good for you.
