A Good Studio Session
The title for this collage came to me out of the blue, but it seemed to fit perfectly. It’s another one of the newest ones from my two recent early morning collage sessions. Its measurements are 4-1/2 inches square on a backing that gives it a one inch border. If you click on the image you can see it in my Etsy shop.
Since I love using pieces of prints that I’ve made, I needed to add to that collection, so today I spent some time with my gelli plate printing new sheets. Here are some shots of the new stash from today’s session. Some areas of the sheets may look a little messy and chaotic, but it’s surprising how interesting they can be when cut down to size.
Note: In this picture, the gold and brown patterned sheet at the top and the blue-green on a white patterned background (on the right) are both magazine pages to which I’ve added paint. No gelli printing at all with those.
The center (background) of this last shot is a big piece of brown paper that I’ve been using to clean off my brayers. This has turned into nice collage paper as well.
Not bad for a couple of hours’ work!
